Madonna apologizes for calling her son the N word
Singer made slur in Instagram photo tag
1 0

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.

    Madonna thinks she has the right to use the N word because she adopted a couple of black kids. Although it wasn't a racial rant, how dare she use such a word that she knows will stir up contention. I would expect this from a 16 year old beginner in the music industry but not a music icon such as Madonna. Or maybe she just suffers from the disease that a lot of white Hollywood people seem to have, which is racial verbal diarhea syndrome.
