Madonna

Calling My Son the N-Word Was ...

'A Term of Endearment'

breaking news

0118-madona-GettyMadonna says she had no idea people would take such offense over her use of the n-word yesterday -- even though at 55 she probably should.

Madge released a statement moments ago saying she's not a racist ... and her use of the hashtag "#disni**a" in reference to her son on Instagram Friday was not meant as a racial slur.

Madonna explains, "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."


Madonna adds, "I appreciate that it's a provocative word and I apologize if it gave people the wrong impression. Forgive me."

Translation: I should stay off Instagram.

I don't think she meant any harm - but it's a good example if how out-of-touch people with money get.

She's EARNED the right, has Madonna -

NEVER to justify or explain herself.

OBVIOUSLY she meant it in a light, joking manner.

It was the opportunists who jumped in - as she noted.

Question...who in their right mind hasn't said that at least 2 times in the past month. I'm black I say it. I have white friends, they said. Hell I heard an Indian say it to another Indian. Racist or not it comes out of peoples mouths. Lets move on folks. Bigger problems in this world

"If You're Over 50 You Can't Act Or Think Young."

That's the new rule.

This wasn't Racism, it was Age-ism.

Madonna bashed behind her age.

People writing cruel, anonymous things:

"Grow the he** up, Has-Been!"

"HAS-Been?"

Really?
