Activists Bash Madonna’s Shoe Choice

 Activists Bash Madonnas Shoe Choice fashionThis is a stickup! Nobody wear gun heeled shoes and nobody gets publicly bashed! It seems to me that anti-violence groups are really cracking down on celebrities who flaunt even the tiniest amount of violent connotation. With the recent FCC crackdown on M.I.A’s song “Paper Planes,” disallowing the gun bangs and clicks to be aired on the radio and now a British anti-violence group marking Madonna’s footwear as “uncaring,” I don’t know where the line begins or ends! 

Madonna wore these killer (literally?) gun heels to the screening of her film Filth and Wisdom Monday night. These platforms were the spotlight for Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel 2009 Resort collection. But don’t jump the gun now, Lyn Costello, from Mothers Against Murder And Aggression said:

“I am horrified that Madonna can see these shoes as fashion. Celebrities have a massive part to play and an icon like Madonna should have more sense.”

I really think these heels are more of a fashion statement and less of a violence marketing campaign. And seriously, when was the last time you heard an 8-year-old say that Madonna was their idol? Now, if Hannah Montana was rocking the gun heels, then we would have some problems…
