Madonna uses derogatory term in Instagram picture of her son, Rocco

By Alicia Mayle,

Madonna landed into some heat when she posted an Instagram picture of her son Rocco, with the hashtag #disn*gga.

The picture was of Madonna’s son, Rocco, during a boxing workout with the caption, “No one messes with Dirty Soap. Momma said knock him out! #disn*gga.” Dirty soap is a nickname for her son.

Followers and non-followers ripped the “Like a Virgin” singer, asking her if her account had been hacked, but this isn’t the first or even the second time Madonna has posted something controversial.

According to Twitchy, after coming under fire for the Instagram picture, Madonna changed the hashtag to “Ok. Let me start this again. #get off my d*ck haters." However this isn’t much better.

When she still came under fire for the new caption, Madonna said, in an interview with E!News,"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. I appreciate that it's a provocative word and I apologize if it gave people the wrong impression. Forgive me." The Instagram with the second caption is still on her profile.

According to Hyper Vocal, Madonna posted a picture of Rocco with a bottle of 94-proof Bombay Sapphire gin during a New Years Eve party, and again in Switzerland when Rocco skied down the slopes without a shirt. Both pictures raised eyebrows.

Madonna and Guy Ritchie are the parents of Rocco, along with another son, David Banda Mwale Ciccone Ritchie. David was adopted from Malawi. Rocco is 13 years old. Ritchie and Madonna divorced in 2008.
