Madonna came under fire this past week after she posted photoshopped images of black leaders, including Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela, and Bob Marley. Now, she is recognizing where she went wrong… sort of.

Taking to her Facebook page, the Rebel Heart singer issued an apology to fans and followers who were offended by the pictures, which showed leaders’ faces wrapped in a black cord.

Revealing that she was reposting the work of some of her dedicated fans, the statement on her Facebook read:

“I’m sorry. I’m not comparing myself to anyone… I’m admiring and acknowledging there (sic) 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.”

She continued, “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.”

Shortly after her apology, Madonna continued to post more photoshopped pictures on Twitter, including one of Brooklyn artist Basquiat, as well as Princess Diana.

She captioned the photo of Basquiat:

Basquiat! Yes anoher ❤️#rebelheart !! Another person i look up to and admire. None of these ❤️#rebelhearts are perfect they are human and come from all walks of life but all have one thing in common. All Freedom Fighters! All Brave! And all have inspired me as an Artist and a Human. ❤#revolutionoflove❤️#artforfreedom ❤️#livingforlove ❤️#rebelheart
