As we recently reported, Madonna came under fire for posting a photo of her son Rocco in Instagram with a caption that included the “N” word.
Yes, THAT “N” word.
Due to the immediate backlash, Madge removed the image and reposted with a friendlier caption…kinda…the caption read: “ok let me start this again, get off my dick haters.”
Madonna has since issued a full apology that you can read below:
“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.”
