Madonna Calls Son Rocco The 'N-Word' On Instagram
Updated Saturday, 10:42 a.m. PST
Madonna's issued an apology for her use of the N-word:
"I am sorry if I offended anyone with my use of the N-word on Instagram," the singer said in a statement on Saturday, Jan. 18. "It was not meant as a racial slur...I am not a racist."
She added: "There's no way to defend the use of the word. It was all about intention...It was used as a term of endearment toward my son who is white. I appreciate that it's a provocative word and I apologize if it gave people the wrong impression. Forgive me."
What do you think??
Sigh. Come on, Madonna, you know better.
Perhaps Madge got knocked in the head during her own boxing workout? The singer posted the following photo of her son Rocco on Instagram on Friday night with the caption:
"No one messes with Dirty Soap! Mama said knock you out! #disn---a"
Yep. That's the N-word.
Facing immediate backlash she quickly deleted the comment and reposted the photo with the caption:
"Ok let me start this again. #get off my d--k haters!"
In any case, she should be. Are people being "haters" for calling her out??
