Madonna is sorry for using the N-word, sort of


Uh, whoops. Just a few weeks after posting an Instagram photo of her underage son Rocco boozing it up (or at least pretending to booze it up) at a New Year’s Eve party, Madonna is in trouble again. The singer took to the ‘gram again to post a photo of her 13-year-old son boxing. Nothing wrong with that, moms be proud of their kids’ activities and all that. Madge’s choice of wording in the caption is where it gets dicey. “: “No one messes with Dirty Soap! Mama said knock you out! #disni—a,” it read.

Um, no. No, Madonna, you cannot refer to your [white] son as “disn—a” in a very public forum and not expect the swift and exacting wrath of the Internet to fall on your head immediately, which, of course, it did.

Madonna took down the offending photo (as celebs who have posted big, sloppy mistakes on social media are wont to do) and issued a half-hearted apology about her choice of words — initially. After having some time to reflect, the 55-year-old re-posted the same photo with a new caption: “Ok let me start this again. #get off of my dick haters!” Which, OK, is sort of rad. Madonna don’t care.

But mostly, it all just confirms one important thing: Moms don’t belong on social media. (Seriously, Moms Of The World, when you post a message to your child’s Facebook timeline you do not have to sign it “love, Mom.” They know it’s from you. Please deactivate your account and also send money, thanks.)
