Pop diva Madonna is receiving backlash after she posted on Instagram photo of her two adopted black kids David Ritchie and Mercy James rubbing her feet.

The photo showed the 56-year-old singer lying on the floor while David and Mercy kneeling in front of her and rubbing her feet.

‘#motherlove.. How I’m gonna get through the day. Mercy and David give the best foot rubs!!! #rebelhearts,’ she captioned it.

Some Twitter users slammed Madonna for posting the picture, accusing her of treating her adopted children like slaves because they’re black.
