"FUCK NEW YORK TIMES! DO YOU THINK YOU NEED TO GO HERE ON VACATION?" MIA tweeted, with a photo of a pile of mangled bodies (graphic and seen below).
"ONCE AGAIN FUCK NEW YORK TIMES !!!!!!!!! GET YOUR PRIORITIES STRAIGHT," the singer continued along with the gruesome photo below.
A bloody civil war between the Sri Lankan government and the insurgent group Tamil Tigers technically ended in May when the Tigers admitted defeat after 25 years. MIA's father, a Tamil tiger, spent much of MIA's childhood in hiding from the Sri Lankan army. In 1986, MIA, her mother, brother and sister moved to London where they were housed as refugees.
