Has the Bublé bubble burst?"

I have been waiting for ages to write that headline

Michael Bublé has been accused of body-shaming a woman while on holiday with his wife and 19-month-old son Noah, in Miami, Florida.

The 39-year-old singer left many fans unhappy after he posted a photograph which features an unidentified woman's backside in the background, with the singer noting: '#myhumps #babygotback #hungryshorts #onlyinmiami'

The photo shows a close shot of Michael in the foreground, with his arms crossed as he sports a form-fitting blue, V-neck T-shirt.  Behind him, a woman at the counter sporting a pair of revealing booty shorts.

'There was something about this photo lu took ,that seemed worthy of instagram,' Michael noted of the shot, taken by his wife, Luisana Lopilato, 27.

The father-of-one followed that remark with a series of hashtags, in case it hadn't been clear what he was talking about: '#myhumps #babygotback #hungryshorts #onlyinmiami #picoftheday #beautifulbum'

But while the Haven't Met You Yet singer thought it was a harmless joke, plenty of followers on Instagram and Twitter took quite the offense to the photo.

Michael was bombarded with angry messages, such as one Twitter user who wrote: 'That's someone's daughter, dude.'

He has since responded to the controversy in a statement to UsWeekly, saying: 'I do not court controversy, but I realize that a photo that was meant to be complimentary and lighthearted has turned into a questionable issue.'

Some "people" have no sense of propriety.

Obviously the woman in the photo thought she looked okay, otherwise she wouldn't have decided to dress that way in public. So why were other people damning the photographer rather than the woman's dress-sense. (Don't blame the messenger!)

Who intentionally left the house dressed that way. Very similar the the People or Wal-mart photos that are on the web.

What is it with people like him. What a prick. Yes, she maybe in public but does that still give you the right to publish such a photo. BTW I think she has a nice arse unlike the first lady's excess baggage.
