Madonna apologises for using the n-word on Instagram

Madonna has issued an apology for her use of the N-word on Instagram. She used the word on a caption under a picture of her 13 year old son Rocco. The singer, who’s not often know to back down from a fight, took the offensive picture down within a few minutes of uploading it with the caption “#disn****”.

Her apology was also a bit out of character for Madonna as she wrote: “I am sorry if I offended anyone with my use of the N word on Instagram. I am not a racist. There’s no way to defend the use of the word. It was all about intention…it was used a tear 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.”

Although she issued an apology, it didn’t stop her followers from ripping into the 55 year old star. “MADONNA U NEED TO TAKE UR arthritis medicine instead of trying to be hip on the internet,” was probably the pick of the bunch but this response from another follower pretty much summed up the feeling: “Spreading ignorance is awful!”

The twitter trouble comes a few weeks after Madonna got herself in trouble for posting a picture of her 13 year old boy with a bottle of gin in his hand during New Year’s celebrations. “The party has just begun! Bring it! 2014” she wrote to accompany the image.

Following all the fuss made over her use of the n-word, Madonna posted another comment. But she probably went a little bit too far in the other direction when she posted a quote from Martin Luther King: “I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.”
