Madonna's Africa Trip Results in Embarrassing Emoji Fail

Innocent mistake or cultural ignorance?

Was it a case of fumbling fingers on a tiny smartphone keyboard... or an epic geography and culture fail? You make the call.

Madonna has been traveling with her family in Africa, where she visited the birth place of her adopted children: Malawi. While there, she was checking out the development progress on a medical center she's helping out in the region. All good so far. 


But in the course of sharing photos with fans on social media, Madonna made an Instagram blunder: She erroneously used an emoji depicting the Kenyan flag. 

That flag, too, is made up of green, red, and black color blocks. So the mistake might have been an innocent one. Still... awkward!
