But she quickly attracted criticism, especially as she had put it up within days of Thursday’s International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.

One follower wrote: “Madonna PLEASE do not pose with a person holding a knife to your throat — this is NOT a photo op. This is really bad!!”

Another said: “We have so much knife crime in London.

...This is just irresponsible and upsetting.”
