Somebody get this crazy old white woman because she done lost her mind!
Some time last week, pop star Madonna posted a picture to her Instagram account of her 13-year-old son, Rocco, boxing. Seemed innocent enough.. right?
WRONG! Madonna captioned the picture “No one messes with Dirty Soap! Mama said knock you out! #disnigga”. (I think I heard jaws drop around the world.)
According to reports from several news cast, Madonna removed the picture as well as the offensive caption but later reposted it when she tried to defend her use of the word:
“It was not meant as a racial slur,” the Material Girl said in a statement sent to CNN by her representative Saturday.
“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 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.”
Nah. That’s unacceptable. You just don’t do those kind of things Madonna.
Do you think Madonna should be forgiven? Or was the apology not enough? Tell us how you feel.
