Madonna sued by French far-right for putting swastika over their leader's face

From the Scotsman:
France’s far-right National Front plans to sue Madonna after the singer showed a video at a Paris concert that contained an image of the party’s leader Marine Le Pen with a swastika on her forehead.

The video has been shown at other concerts on the singer’s tour, and the party has expressed its outrage before, warning that it would take action if the video were shown in France. On Saturday night, Madonna played it at the Stade de France.

National Front spokesman Alain Vizier yesterday said that the party would file a complaint in French court next week for “insults.”
While Le Pen's father is an anti-Semitic Holocaust denier, among other things, she has tried to tone down the party's racism and anti-Semitism (though it's debatable why and to what degree she's toned it down). So it will be interesting to see how courts handle this.
