Activists Upset by Madonna’s Gun Shoes


The world might have Madonna's divorce on the brain, but we're still hung up on the shoes she wore to the screening of her film Filth and Wisdom Monday night in New York. The platforms with guns for heels were a highlight of Karl Lagerfeld's Chanel 2009 resort collection. But a British anti-violence group found the shoes offensive and has labeled Madge "uncaring."

Lyn Costello, from Mothers Against Murder And Aggression, says, "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.

"It's uncaring. Surely she reads the news and realizes that young people are dying every day."

Oh, give Madge a break, lady. She's getting divorced while on a grueling world tour, her new movie's getting panned, and hardly anyone's saying anything nice about her clothes these days. Can't she enjoy her footwear?
