Madonna’s Poor Choice of Words

By: Tara Johnson

 

Madonna has never been the one to shy away from expressing herself.  But the outspoken singer may have stuck her foot in her mouth when she called her son Rocco Ritchie the N-word on Instagram.

“No one messes with Dirty Soap!” she captioned a photo of her 13-year-old son during a boxing workout Friday. “Mama said knock you out! #disn—a”

Now the 55-year-old “Justify My Love” singer is apologizing for her choice of words.

“I am sorry if I offended anyone with my use of the N-word on Instagram,” she said in a statement Saturday to E! News. “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.”
