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.

Madonna's son walks, talks, and acts like a ghetto thug; what's the big deal calling him what he is?

I don't like the word, period. BUT if whites shouldn't say it, neither should blacks (Or PC correct for today... African Americans) You can't have it ok for a black person to say this word and not ok for whites. Make up your dam mind! Oh and then all those rappers are racists also. It's racial to think blacks can say something but whites can't - that's BS

Well everybody knows she luvs the dark dick but her use of the word towards her child was definitely inappropriate.As a matter of fact it magnifies just how insensitive she is to the african american community,but i guess she could care less because she doesnt care about record sales any longer ,shes an old washed up white whore whos no longer relavant and her ***** is way past worn out and outta warranty

African american men take note especially those foolish ass athletes that choose to go the white woman route as soon as they acquire fame,money. They always view you as a ******,just make one angry and youll hear right outta their mouth what they think of you,I speak from experience no one told me this .
