Madonna apologizes for calling her son the N-word; still takes heat on Twitter

madonna 2Black Twitter brought the proud and defiant Madonna to her knees after she foolishly called her son the N-word while he was practicing in the boxing ring the other day.

Initially, enough verbal darts were shot in her direction to inspire her to take the photo down and repost it with another inflammatory phrase.

But after telling people to “Get off her d—…” because people getting upset that Madonna is calling her son a “N—-” is just all too shocking for her, she showed contrition for her imbecility:

“I am sorry if I offended anyone with my use of the N word on Instagram. It was not meant as a racial slur. I am not a racist. 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.”
