Madonna is back in hot water.

The National Front, France's far-right party, said that it plans to sue the singer for showing a video of leader Marine Le Pen with a swastika on her forehead during her Saturday concert in Paris. According to The Guardian, Le Pen plans to file a lawsuit with the Paris courts in the next few days for "public insult."

The video has been played during other stops on Madonna's tour. The National Front, which has been accused of anti-Semitism, had threatened legal action last month if Madonna were to show the video in France

"We can't accept this!" National Front Vice President Florian Philippot said Sunday. The FNP's lawyer Wallerand de Saint-Just added, "Showing Marine Le Pen's image with a swastika is like saying she is a Nazi

That wasn't the only stunt the Material Girl pulled during the concert: She also flashed her breast and buttocks. Of course, that wasn't the first time she's done that either.
