UPDATE 3: Madonna responds to reactions to this with a statement:
"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. Forgive me."
UPDATE 2: Madonna reposts the picture with a new caption:
"Ok let me start this again. #get off of my dick haters!"
(Hashtag fail, and general, all-around fail).
UPDATE: Madonna deleted the post.
"No one messes with Dirty Soap! Mama said knock you out! #disnigga"
I get incredible awkward white-person teas from it, personally.
What do we think of Madge using the N-word?
