She’s one of the world’s best-known gay icons but it seems Madonna outraged a huge chunk of her fans playing a game online on Tuesday.
The 55-year-old was taking part in a word association game with entertainment site Buzzfeed when she was asked how she felt about kale - one of the healthiest vegetables around.
The star wrote ‘gay’ to describe her feelings toward the cabbage-like product – outraging many fans with her flippant use of the word as an insult.
Madonna previously blasted Putin for his ‘blatant intolerance of gay rights’, and revealed she had received death threats after performing in Russia in 2012.
But it seems her fight for gay rights slipped her mind when she dismissively used the word to describe a vegetable.
