| by Michael Allen

Madonna has come under fire for using a controversial in-concert video that features an image shown of Front National (FN) leader Marine Le Pen layered in a montage with a swastika superimposed on the singer's forehead (video below).

After a few seconds, the videos reveals an Adolf Hitler look-alike.

Madonna premiered the video in Israel, causing Le Pen to say “If she does that in France, [we will] be waiting for her.”

Not surprisingly, Madonna screened it in front of 70,000 attendees at her Stade de France concert near Paris.

This judge looked an inmate square in the eyes and did something that left the entire courtroom in tears:

Now, Le Pen’s team says a lawsuit against Madonna will be taken to the Paris courts within a few days. There is still no word on how much Le Pen will seek in damages, but his father, Jean-Marie Le Pen, recommended that Madonna and her team pay $1-million to his daughter.

The FN has been known for anti-Semitic and racist statements in the past, but has bene trying to rehabilitate its image.
