Madonna Brandishes Fake Assault Rifle Onstage Hours After 'Batman' Massacre » Gossip - Madonna's recent attempts to be the most provocative woman in pop have rung embarrassingly hollow of late. On this summer's MDNA tour, most of her "shocking" antics — from emblazoning Nazi iconography on politicians' faces to exposing various body parts — have been met with disinterested eyerolls. Madonna Now that disinterest will likely turn to disgust, as the singer blatantly defied a police request to ditch the fake guns she's been using on every stop of her tour. According to The Daily Record, officials in Edinburgh, Scotland were dismayed to see Madonna writhing around onstage with a replica AK-47 while performing at the capital's Murrayfield Stadium.
The singer even joked about being "cut off" over her choice of prop, which looked particularly tasteless in the wake of the Dark Knight Rises massacre that left 12 people dead in Colorado last week.
