The pop star apologized Saturday for using a racial slur in a caption accompanying an Instagram photo of her son Friday night, which caused infuriated fans to berate her.

“No one messes with Dirty Soap! Mama said knock you out!” Madonna wrote, adding a variation of the N-word, the Associated Press reports. Initially calling her critics “haters,” the singer later took a more apologetic tone.

“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,” she said. “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.”

The singer has has three other children, two of whom are black and adopted from the country Malawi in southeast Africa.

I am not sure why ppl are so stuck up on using the word as it used to not mean a derogatory word. It is the race's name in biology such as caucasian for white people so they should be offended then as well being called caucasian? Most European languages use the biological name for races and not meaning anything bad so when they learn english they do not even understand what is the big fuss about it here in North America. Regarding adoption. People adopt kids as they cannot have a child anymore or would be able to afford to have more but also try to help some kids to get out of their bad situations whether they were born into poverty or been left behind cause of some tragedy. 


Doesn't matter who they adopted and to be honest most of the time white ppl are unable to adopt white kids even from Russia as adoption regulations are much stricter in European countries and epecially in Noth America so they find it easier to adopt from 3rd world countries. I know many people who would've loved to adopt from their own countries in Europe or in North America too but were not succeeding so they either adopted from Asia or Africa instead as all they cared about to have kids and that is where they were able to do it. So before anyone tries to explain it by liberalism etc. should look closer to some practical and logical answers first and be more well rounded about language history and adoption regulation as well. Think logical and not emotional first! ;):)

So, Madonna says the "N Word" and there's barely a peep about it.  But, Paula Deen says it 30+ years ago and they all but string her up by her fingernails.  Typical.

All liberals are racist. Why would this crazy liberal woman's diatribe shock anyone?

@HeatherSharp Careful, that bridge you're supposed to be guarding may just fall apart without you! Better get back under the bridge!

@HeatherSharpThis statement is so sweeping as to be indefensible.  I would even go so far as to say that not even all Klansmen are racist.  I bet some of them just participate because they like the socialization and roasting marshmellows on the burning cross.

@HeatherSharp Wow... you are stupid. Generalize much? (No, I am not a Madonna fan or a liberal either).

@DeathByCactus I think what Heather is trying to say is that most, if not all liberals are obsessed with race. Madonna adopted two African children. Sandra Bullock has an African kid, Angie Jolie and Pitt have African and Asian adopted kids All of these people  could have adopted a child from Russia, or Romania or abandoned white American children. But they didn't. Why not? Because liberals are obsessed with race. The sense of guilt they feel about being white always makes them say or do things that reveal their race-obsession. Most normal white people simply get on with being white and normal. They don't walk around feeling guilty and with a belief that they must live their lives based on what they think blacks or any other non-white group may want or expect of them. Self-hating white liberals do.

@TommyVenter Self hating white liberals... I don't know any liberals who hate being white or worry about race like this statement describes. Are you saying that anyone who adopts someone of another color is a self hating guilty white person? Because if that is the case, white people better get some guns and concentration camps going. We got a problem. I know non celebrities who have fallen in love with people from other races, others who have adopted from other races (based off of having an amazing heart). However, it's apparently white guilt that made them do it. Not love or compassion.


Maybe it's because I love in Houston and am around people of other color more. Maybe I am a guilty white person and don't know it... All I know is that reading what you wrote gives me very little hope for humanity. Mostly because you explained that so politely and a without profanity laced tirade that it seems to me like this is genuinely burned into your system and beliefs and that is something I can't understand. I honestly expected that kind of a statement to come from westborrow Baptist church or Hitler. With a lot of emotion and cursing.


I hate lazy people of all colors... I see some truths in some generalizations... But... This one has way too much tin foil required for me.
