Many in Mexico have been upset by the way in which the American singer Miley Cyrus took out the national flag at a concert on Tuesday, and that prompted an investigation by the authorities. But it is certainly not the first controversy involving an artist in the country.

The rock band U2, the singers Madonna and Marilyn Manson as well as television presenters such as Cristina Saralegui or Laura Bozzo have caused controversy at different times.

Other Mexican artists have also starred in scandals, and some have even occupied the first criticism sites on social networks such as Twitter.

The current controversy with Miley Cyrus began on Tuesday. In the first concert of her tour of Mexico, held in the city of Monterrey, Nuevo León, the American singer allowed one of her dancers to hit her false behind with the flag.
