Madonna was the focus of an online attack by Russia’s Deputy PM Dmitry Rogozin after her branded her a moralising 'slut'.
The singer, who is currently on her MDNA tour, was blasted after she made a speech to back the country’s gay campaigners last night at her St Petersburg gig.
Deputy PM Rogozin tweeted his disgust: ''With age, every former s. tries to lecture everyone on morality.
However fans of the singer were quick to respond, with one tweeting that they infact backed Madonna's speech and views.
To which Rogozin replied: ''Either take off your cross, or put on your knickers.''

While Rogozin did not write the word in full there is little doubt in Russia that he was using a version of the word "whore", considered one of the most offensive terms that is used against the female sex.
Madonna, who is known for her outspoken manner, went on to champion gay rights at the concert.
The singer, who had the word 'No Fear' written on her back, instructed the audience to ''show your love and appreciation to the gay community. We want to fight for the right to be free.''
Her actions could now see the singer face a fine, as promoting homosexuality to the young is illegal in the country.
Earlier this week, Madonna showed her support for the feminist band Pussy Riot, who face 3 years in jail for protesting against Russian president Vladimir Putin in a cathedral, by scrawling "Pussy Riot" across her back and performing her hit 'Like a Virgin' in the band's trademark balaclava on Tuesday.
She praised the band's three women – Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Maria Alyokhina and Yekaterina Samutsevich, saying that she was praying for their freedom.
The women are facing charges of hooliganism motivated by religious hatred as they performed an anti-Putin punk prayer in the cathedral. A verdict is due on 17 August.
