Madonna Apologises For Using N-Word

Madonna has issued an apology after using the N-word on Instagram when she captioned a picture of 13-year old son Rocco.
The statement read: "I am sorry if I offended anyone with my use of the N-word on Instagram," reports Billboard.
"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. Forgive me."
After the singer’s initial post on the picture sharing site sparked criticism, Madonna removed the offending snap before writing a defiant message to her critics: “Ok let me start this again. Get off of my d**k haters!"
Today, however, the Queen of Pop was clearly trying to make amends, as she posted a quotation from Martin Luther King on the site, which said: “I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.”
