London (Web Desk): A singer who posed topless in front of a London war memorial has found herself at the center of a social media shame storm.

Lauren Henson defended herself by suggesting the dead soldiers would have appreciated seeing her.

Henson, who goes by the name of Indiana, posed in front of the plaque in Clapham which commemorates those who died in WWI . The singer had no top on and was covering her breasts with her hands.

Henson first posted the pictures in June, but when she added more images from the same night to her Instagram this week, she invited a wave of anger from patriotic Brits offended by the combination of bare breasts and brave deceased war heroes.

“Those names behind me, those boys died fighting for our freedom. I live in the free world they created and here I am, embracing my body and being free. Take me back 100 years, stand me in front of those soldiers, what would they think? What would they say? What would they do? I think I look good in front of that wall. I haven’t done it to upset anyone and I don’t think it’s a particularly offensive image, in fact anyone who checks my social platforms will have seen it before... Of course I’m not trying to disrespect the fallen. If I’ve offended anyone then it was not my intention”, she wrote.
