Madonna has been accused of photoshopping her face onto a picture of a fan and sharing it on Instagram according to a now viral TikTok from the fan, Amelia Goldie, who says that Madonna posted the image six years ago to promote her album.

This is a weird one, so let's take it bit-by-bit. It all started back in 2015 when Madonna was promoting her new album Rebel Heart, she posted a picture on Instagram apparently showing her sitting on a bed in a black houndstooth skirt, Joy Division t-shirt and ankle boots, along with the caption, "I look Kewl.........❤️#rebelheart".

Now, six years later a woman named Amelia Goldie recently posted a TikTok, in which she called out Madonna for the 2015 Instagram post, saying that the singer had taken one of her pictures, photoshopped her head onto it and posted it on Instagram.

"When Madonna posts a photo of herself to IG to promote her new album but its [sic] actually your body (I'm not joking)," Amelia captioned the TikTok which shows a picture of the 2015 Instagram post.

The TikTok quickly went viral garnering more than 2 million views, and Amelia has since posted a follow-up video showing fans that the post is still there six years later.

Speaking to Buzzfeed Amelia said that when she first saw the picture she "thought it was a joke" until she spotted that it had been shared by Madonna's official Instagram account.

Amelia said that she "tried to reach out via Instagram to her team twice, to no response," adding "I [would] definitely laugh and say I’m flattered, but of course that I wish I was credited!"
