During her last concert in Europe, in the South of France, Madonna finally dropped a swastika superimposed on an image of the far-right politician Marine Le Pen, following legal threats from the National Front Party leader.

­Although the video that accompanied the pop diva’s performance of "Nobody Knows Me" still featured France’s National Front leader, Marine Le Pen, the swastika that used to flash on the politician's forehead was replaced with a question mark.

The appearance of the Nazi emblem during Madonna's Paris performance last month caused outrage among members of the party. They launched legal action against the singer and threatened to return to the courts should she use it again.
