The 39-year-old singer posted this Instagram picture while in Miami, captioned, "There was something about this photo lu took, that seemed worthy of instagram.

The picture -- which Bublé has yet to take down -- has upset a lot of his fans.
For being taken without permission.
For being something we wouldn't expect from him.
Some people have even reported the photo.
Listen dude, it doesn't matter how sweet and sultry your voice is, you probably shouldn't take pictures of regular people without them knowing and then shame them on the Internet.
In light of the controversy, Bublé has released a statement addressing critics of the post.
"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."
However, the photo still remains
, and actually has over 40,000 likes.
Do you give Bublé the benefit of the doubt? Or do you think he should take the photo down?
