'Worst things I've ever seen': Madonna fans despair over apparent 'butt implants' revealed in strange selfie

Madonna has been accused of enhancing her body with "butt implants" after sharing a mirror selfie that's prompted ridicule and confusion. 

The 61-year-old music legend shared two revealing snaps on Instagram celebrating the start of "regenerative treatment" for her "missing cartilage", saying she's been in pain for eight months. 

It wasn't what was missing that got people talking though, rather, it was what has apparently been added. Madonna's markedly bigger than usual derriere, reflected in her mirror, quickly had fans claiming she'd "ruined her body". 

"I love you gurl, but those butt implants are toooo much!" one Instagram user commented. 

"Remove the implants," said another. 

"These are literally the worst things I've ever seen, I'm not even sorry. LOOK AT THEM," a third wrote. 

Others felt Madonna's timing was off in posting the odd photos while the world continues to battle the COVID-19 pandemic. 

"Are we supposed to feel sorry for her? Poor Madonna got botched butt implants, boo hoo. The rest of the world is burning and she's out here showing her ass," one comment read. 

It's not the first time the 'Material Girl' has received backlash for her social media posts during the coronavirus outbreak. She posted and later deleted a video of her musing about the "great" and "wonderful" aspects of the deadly disease from a bath sprinkled with rose petals.
