NEW YORK (AP) - Madonna is apologizing for using a racial slur to refer to her white son on Instagram.
On Friday night, she posted a picture of her 13-year-old son Rocco boxing and used a hashtag that contained a variation of the n-word.
When fans objected, she defiantly called them haters, but in a statement to The Associated Press on Saturday she was contrite, saying: "Forgive me."
Madonna said she is not a racist and she did not mean to use the word as a slur but knows there is no way to defend its use. She said she used it as a term of endearment.
She said she apologizes if it gave the wrong impression.
Besides Rocco, Madonna has three other children, including two black children adopted from the African nation Malawi.
I think she appologized because she couldn't think of a better way to try and stay in the news.
THImK she used the word to get in da news!If one can call the LaMe Stream media news!TRY Aljazzera for a hint of what news could be!
She's an absolute idiot.
Like an extremely racist former co-worker used to say..., "Only a n****r can call a n****r a n****r". I told her to go piss up a rope.
Who is Madonna?
She is the one who has influenced Lady Gaga....... Obviously
Who cares...... What's that got to do with her present behavior..... Get a clue !
For a word to be an insult, the recipient must be what the word describe. Now, if the recipient thinks of him/herself as the word describe, then it quits being an insult and it simply is a word that, truly describes that person. And lastly, why would the use of a word, which is widely used among blacks -now, remember the ones that claim they do not use it are an extreme minority, which means they, basically, do not count-, can be consider an insult when they have no realms on keeping calling themselves so, is it that the darkness of their skin allows them to continue describing themselves as they were described during the slavery years, and they just feel comfortable with it? Hypocrites!
Racism...it's just so 60's.
Who cares what Madonna has to say. Has-been.
there are racists in all races, it is not confined to the white race alone. Why is it that every time someone says anything anymore there has to be some whiny person that is offended? Get a life and stop whining about unimportant things....there are bigger things to worry about in this country...like how our government is screwing us
Why would anyone be still interested in what Madonna says or does? She is a dinosaur in every respect of that term --- she even looks like one! One can only imagine what the media would have said if it had been someone more conservative who had said whatever it is she said. Being politically liberal, evidently, gives one a pass to insult just about anyone or to say about anything with impunity. Even with such a pass, however, she remains a first-class asswipe.
Thank you for proving my point to my "politically braindead" children! Liberals eat their own when they feel the need to feed.
That last word imploded your whole comment !
well !!! maybe that's what paula dean meant ????
