Michael Buble got into hot water this week when he posted a photo his wife took during their vacation in Miami, but it wasn't anything Michael was doing in the photo that caused the controversy.

There was something about this photo lu took ,that seemed worthy of instagram," he wrote, and then explained what he meant with a hashtag-heavy explanation referencing the woman standing behind him. "#myhumps #babygotback #hungryshorts #onlyinmiami#picoftheday #beautifulbum."

Obviously, fans weren't happy and the singer faced a ton of backlash on both Instagram and Twitter, where the photo was also posted. Some people felt that he was body-shaming her, while others simply thought it was inappropriate to post a photo of a woman without her consent.
The singer finally took to his Facebook page to apologize, sharing this message with fans:

Anybody who knows me would never misinterpret the message of the photo my wife took in Miami that seems to have caused unexpected rage by some people. 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. For the record, It hurts me deeply that anyone would think that I would disrespect women or be insulting to any human being.. I was not brought up that way and it is not in my character. I regret that there are people out there who found the photo offensive. That was not and is not my intention. Women are to be celebrated, loved, respected, honored and revered. I've spent my life believing that and will continue to do so.

What do you guys think of his apology?
