Madonna is apologizing for using a racial slur to refer to her white son.

On Friday night, she posted a picture of 13-year-old son Rocco boxing to Instagram and used a hashtag that contained a variation of the n-word.

When fans objected, she defiantly called them haters. She eventually deleted the photo, but reposted it with the caption "Ok let me start this again. #get off of my dick haters!"

On Saturday, Madonna asked her Instagram followers for forgiveness.

"My job is to inspire and bring people together . My message has always been about tolerance and non judgement. The last thing I want to do is bring chaos or cause separation in anyway. #revolutionoflove", wrote Madonna.

She went on.

"I am sorry if I offended anyone with my use of the N word on Instagram. It was not meant as a racial slur. I am not a racist. There's no way to defend the use of the word. It was all about intention. It was used as a term of endearment to my son who is white. I appreciate that it is a provocative word and I apologize if I gave people the wrong impression. Forgive me"

Besides Rocco, Madonna has three other children, including two black children adopted from the African nation of Malawi.
