mlkRealising the repercussions that followed, she took to Facebook to issue an apology:

“I’m sorry. I’m not comparing myself to anyone… I’m admiring and acknowledging their Rebel Hearts. This is neither a crime or an insult or racist! I also did it with Michael Jackson and Frida Kahlo and Marilyn Monroe. Am I saying I am them? NO. I’m saying they are Rebel Hearts too…And I didn’t do it. My fans did. And I just re posted those photos. My fans aren’t racist either if they put me in the same category as these other people. Thank you. I’m very flattered and I hope one day to live up to 1 100th of what those people accomplished.”
