Madonna Releases An Apology For Using The N-Word! Read It HERE!

| Filed under: MadonnaOops!Instagram

madonna apologizes statement using n word instagram pic

We all kind of knew an apology would be coming, right?!

Madonna recently posted a pic of her son Rocco Ritchie on Instagram, and accompanied it with a racial hashtag!

The 55-year-old singer later deleted the pic and kind of apologized, but now Her Madgesty has a real “I’m sorry” for the world! Her statement read:

"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."

We forgive you, Madonna, and hopefully everyone else will too.

But we have to wonder again why she would even think that using the n-word is okay!

    What a putrid, stupid, OLD washed out has-been this racist crone is!

    An ugly, ugly person inside and out . . . through and through.

    Oldonna had just dug her grave even deeper.

    People who criticize #Madonna abt a word that #AfricanAmericans use as part of everyday talk & rap music are liar and phony hypocrites !!!!

    ……..meanwhile in Kanye and Drake's songs N-words are fine. Grow up, America.

    The racist old has been is a hypocrite:

    "Ok let me start this again. #get off of my **** haters!"

    That's what she said in response to the people who reacted to her stupid racist rant on Instagram. And now she's sorry????

DRAMA FOR NOTHING…. love ut words queen. of course u didnt want to ofend anyone

    Re: Love Madonna – You're right, I'm black and I can't say that I was offended by this, It's used too often now a days in social media to be considered offensive anymore…

  9. annainparis says – reply to this


    I totally understand, and black people joke about this all the time, you have to be an insider to understand that it's ok to use this kind of sluring. Black people slur at us all the time, it's a social thing to do. Or maybe she just gave us a hint that she didn't wantto perform with Woncé at the grammys, seriously, if I were Madonna, a person dedicated to her craft, to rigor, her aention to details, a real in depth person, I wouldn't want to be associated with a jumpy lioness.

    Madonna and her impact….never fails.
    1 word and the world has waken up including all the haterz.

    Madonna is not racist. Grow up, Americans.

    Re: Divimonster – Youre a moron. I bet if Oldonna commits murder, you'd still try to justify it. Dim witted fanatic

  13. suprise says – reply to this


    " But we have to wonder again why she would even think that using the n-word is okay! "

    This is what I call the work of the devil. He may harm his former protege as soon as its instrument is more than useless for him…It is obvious that Madonna has been victim of a tangle of the spirit. Never, even very confused by a disease, she would have done something of the sort.

    So how come she can't make an impact on the radio and the charts, where it matters, eh?

    Oldonna's fans are ALL morons. Must be very hard to defend an old, washed-out, irrelevant –and now–racist has been.

    They (these idiotic fanatics) know that thyre sick of their OLD crone too, but just had to stand by their word

  23. Chris says – reply to this


    Honestly, I don't think it's a big deal. I mean she apologized for it. I think the reason why Madonna can get away with saying stuff like this is because she isn't afraid and she's ballsy and will own up to whatever. Now, people are saying that Paula Deen got a lot more thrown at her for the same situation, I think that people did is because she's easy to pick on. She immediately cried on national television melting down and I think that she poured more gas onto the fire. A nice apology in WORD is fine and you don't have to go on station to station making yourself look foolish.

  24. Zaina says – reply to this


    Madonna acts like a child. She's 55 and she should know better. She is going to be a grandmother soon enough she should act like a middle aged woman not a young adult.

  25. @v@ says – reply to this


    The music industry is full of and surrounded by musicians and crews who use the N word as a term of endearment towards each other every day. So much so that it has insinuated itself into the vocabulary of white artists who use it the same way. People need to relax and understand context and intention.

  26. Strangeasitmay says – reply to this


    I dont think Madonna is racist, but everyone is entitled to believe what they want.

  27. @v@ says – reply to this


    This totally fake up-in-arms over this is because people are just plain stupid. Illustrating that you have no comprehension of how a word is being used and its meaning when its used that way (a term of endearment, just like the blacks use it) is nothing to beat your drums about or be proud of.

  28. 28

    Using the phrase "I'm sorry IF I offended" is not apologizing, it is a passive agressive way of saying "you're too stupid to see it the way I wanted". Oldest PR trick in the book. The old hag doesn't give a fuck.

    Also pretty funny how you are not tearing her a new one like you would for celebrities who use the word f*g. Maybe you would if your lips weren't so firmly implanted on her stanky, geriatric bunghole

  29. Bella says – reply to this


    Its ok. As long as she is not a white woman from the southern USA and it did not say it after having a gun pointed at her, and it was not 30 years ago when she did it, then it is ok.

  30. The Matrix says – reply to this


    She's no better than Paula Deen. She needs to make a real apology.

  33. 33

    First a pic of her son with alcohol, then posting with the N word? Sounds like someone is trying to stay relevant to me.

  34. 34

    I don't know why she did it, but that's the way to apologize.

  35. 35

    Why she said it in the first place, I mean.

  36. Erin says – reply to this


    Let me ask you this Perez…

    Why is she not being brutally scrutinized for using this word like Paula Dean was? Madonna used this language just YESTERDAY, in a time where many people are (rightfully) sensitive to it. She was not being threatened…she used it lightly and claims it was a term of "endearment" for her white son. Paula Dean, however, was being held at gunpoint by a black man many many years ago, scared for her life…and she was dropped by EVERYONE. Madonna should recieve the same treatment. Labels should drop her and whatever else. That is unfair.

    And for you Perez….you say…"oh I forgive you Madonna, and I hope everyone else does too.."…. Well why don't you forgive someone so easily when they make a not so great remark towards homosexuality? It's the same thing. They made extremely poor judgement in regards to their comments. You should show the same forgiveness towards them.

    You show so much HATE towards Phil Robertson, who's opinions just differ from yours. He never said he hated gay people or that they should be shot…he just said he didn't agree with it and it doesn't line up with the bible in which he deeply believes in. To believe something differently than you does NOT mean hate. You can still love someone without supporting something they choose to partake in.

    Very hypocritical.

    my buddy's step-aunt makes $82/hr on the computer. She has been out of work for 10 months but last month her paycheck was $18010 just working on the computer for a few hours. read this….

  38. TOto says – reply to this


    I think that she did this for attention(SHOCKER). She is old enough to know better than to think it's ok to say that. She's TRYING to be young and "hip". She hears it in songs out today, so she's trying to fit in. Grow up Madonna, act your age.

  39. Dex says – reply to this


    Re: Yulanda – In terms of world affairs, it hardly made a ripple. I wouldn't have even known about it had I not been scrolling through this site. But I'm sure in her mind, she thinks the world was reeling over it.

  40. *** says – reply to this


    Re: Chris – You think Madonna right now is not making herself look foolish? Um, OK

  41. Charlie Wienercloset says – reply to this


    Re: @v@ – Context and intention are trumped by good taste and propriety. Do you use that word? No. Why? Because it instantly offends. Do not give her a pass. She has an adopted son and daughter, who, (we hope) she wouldn't want being called that and for whom she should be setting an example.

  42. pyt333 says – reply to this


    Interesting that Divinah called Madonna old, useless and racist, and in response people are calling Divinah a monkey, ghetto b**ch, crack head etc. Those people who made those comments may want to do some self reflection. If your immediate response to someone saying something you don't like is make those types of comments, you might be a racist.

  43. issa2911 says – reply to this


    Re: divinah – Ur retarded ….just shut up!…..Out of all people…Madonna has been a fighter for minorities for years ….we are all guilty of some point in our lives that we have said some racial remarks, but in a non threatening way though….so Madonna don't sweat the small stuff….

  44. @v@ says – reply to this


    Re: Charlie Wienercloset – Yeah, I tend to steer away from the hot potatoes for the reasons you cited. Madonna didn't in this case and look at the molehill to mountain shitstorm. Ain't social media grand.

  45. Face it .. says – reply to this


    Re: issa2911 – yes i have seen it , some people used the ”N””
    word not because of some ones color skin ,but because of their attitude

  46. My Fairy God Smother says – reply to this


    This is one of 10 reasons why i"m so opposed to whites trying to be wiggers. Nomatter how black you think you are or how black you try to act or how black you date…… in the end.. .you will still be perceived is "just some racist honky". Wiggers, in their desperation to be accepted on the sleazy side of the tracks, tend to speak in ebonics and ebonics is dangerous to speak in because its number one word in usage is NIQQA. I feel sorry for wiggers who drive lowriders around L.A. blasting rap music. N word music. How dangerous that must be. "yo. I just heard the n word from that honkeys car". If you have to be something other than white…. be a ninja or shogun.

  47. IcemouseKing says – reply to this


    Madonna on older men (allegedly on the net): "“They’re usually grumpy and fat and balding.”
    But did any older men, fat men or bald men gripe and complain? Nope probably because she is aging worse than most humans on earth. I only just learned she's 55. I thought she "looked good for 65". If old white men, fat white men and bald white men can handle her hateful misuse of words, why cant blacks? Get over it.

  48. Genuine Blonde Genes says – reply to this


    Madonna fail aside, I have a theory why this dark haired italian chose to be a wannabe nordic blonde and not black haired (which she looked better as). Its harder to hide grey roots with black hair. In fact, i think thats the real reason so many people try to be us blondes. Blonde conceals the gray roots better while black hair is like a prison spotlight trained on every runaway gray strand. By now, I bet, madonna is as gray as she is depressing.

  49. 49

    I'm sorry….am I the only one thrown by the fact she uses it as a term of endearment for her white son? How does that even make sense?

    She's the Queen. Drag queen. She's a man, baybee!

  51. 51

    Oldonna is clearly in the early stages of dementia and/or senility. Or she's just have a drug and/or alcohol problems. Either way, this sick, sad, old crone needs professional/medical attention.

  52. Jay says – reply to this


    Re: divinah – AMEN! It's like her fans are brain washed into thinking she's still cool… meanwhile she's just a washed up cash cow. And the rest of us are all laughing @ those who still think she's relevant.

  53. 53

    Re: pyt333 – totally agree with you.

  54. 54

    A consoling thought to ALL of Oldonna's fans:

    Your fallen idol will be back on the limelight again and will become relevant only when she dies. She will then be once again the talk of the world. But that will last only for ONE week.

    Re: divinah – LMFAOO you're not better then her, you're even worse. I mean just take at look at your obsessive attitude and disgusting sentences LMFAOO

  56. 56

    Well, unlike Paula Deen she will still be singing. I miss Paula, big time.

  57. 57

    Re: Truth Hurts – OK, then, Oldonna will have TWO weeks of media exposure instead of one after she dies. Happy now?

  58. CJ says – reply to this


    Madonna's shock value expired about 20 years ago. Everyone knows everything she ever does and has ever done is for publicity. Now people are like, "meh…she's at it again…how pathetic." Kind of sad she's using her son now for it.

  59. 59

    M apology,.. and all forgivin now try move on,…..

    I agree she should not have used that word, and why would she speak to her son that way? On the other hand, Madonna is not racist, she adopted 2 black children.
    She has apologized, and that is good enough for me. After all this word is used all the time these days, I would never use it but please, she is no racist.

    Just because Madonna went to Africa, buys black people, walks around
    with whips and uses the N word she is a racist? Whatever.

  68. 68

    What is this world coming to? No one can say anything these days without being labeled a racist, a homophobe…It seems to me like we are seriously going backwards instead of forward. CANNOT believe how much her innocent hashtag was taken so severely out of context. SMH. Society today is becoming so politically correct that our freedom of speech is being threatened. Like, REALLY? Even Liam Payne, Beyonce…every celeb can suddenly get ripped to shreds for something as innocent as a silly hashtag or liking a show or posing in front of The Last Supper on instagram.

    Re: divinah
    wow, aren't you a lovely person yourself. not a hater at all. and attacking someone personally, too, while all madonna is guilty of is using a word that is sort of bah in certain circles but totally ok in others…
    but you are entitled to call somebody ugly… wow. talk about double standards.

    Re: divinah – poor divinah. sorry your d*** is so microscopic. madonna is the queen of all media. looking forward to her performance with beyonce the lezie next week! as usual in one fell swoop madonna gets attention, changes the world, pizzes of gwennie palltrowugh and reminds people that her ratinings on the super bowl were higher than beys ps. is bey actually owned by jay z? cause madonna isn't owned by anyone. 12 years a happy rockafella :::))))))

  72. 72

    Why was Paula Deen made into a MONSTER (I am not condoning Paula's ignorance at all…) and Madonna can get slip by with a flimsy apology? Most likely because Madonna doesn't rely on the Food Network for a contract but the public sure did a number on her. For Madonna, it is more accepted why? She is a performer? This subject and word is so up in the air and our society really doesn't know what the protocal is for mainstream. Pick and choose, society who is "allowed" or can slip up by saying this crude things if you are white about a historically derogatory term…label. It annoys me though that Madonna fell into an adolescent mindset with this one. Discredits her incredibly…but, do I think she cares? LOL

  73. 73

    Re: piawood – No, Pia, the old crone didn't "get away" with it. It just so happened that Paula Deen was relevant that's why she got more flack. The media doesn't really pay attention to Oldonna anymore, so this incident really didn't make any impact on the headlines. Liam Payne's story is the big news now.

    Better luck next time. Oldonna will make it to the headlines again when she ODs. Her posts on Instagram are proofs that she's got an alcohol or drug problem. Or she's in the early stages of senility or dementia.

    So the "N" word is now a "term of endearment" for her white son. What is she going to call her black son? Honkey?

  75. Tonic says – reply to this


    Re: SAM – The double standard is Madonna says it, and it's OK. She's "changing the world." Whatever! Let someone either Madonna fans or Perez hate say it, no matter what the intent was, and they will be lynched (no pun intended) mercilessly. I don't care that Madonna said it, nor that I care Paula Deen once said it, and I don't care who the next person is that says it, but some of the defenders here are so hypocritical, and they know it.

  76. Good chance old lady says – reply to this


    OK, just listen to me two seconds. I think Madonna has never been racist in the past or even less now! A good reason to support my point: it would destroy his career, which means lose of large annual receipts now!. To deprive its offspring of an immense fortune with royalty, example; Michael Jacksons children! I don't pretend to know this lady (since she has attained a venerable age, this is much the less things to properly honor the use of titles) but I'd be really insulted if I was wrong about how I imagine his daily reality of every day!

  77. ICEmouseKING says – reply to this


    older white men are the mentallly strongest human on earth. NO human is stronger mentally. They are the most hated human. They are the most bashed human in white culture. The PC police never sticks up for them. .Older white females invented words like "cougar" which basically tranlates to "old white men are ugly hags" and young white females call him "creeps and pervs". He's hated by every age group of white female. Females are bashed for liking him. "ewe how can like him. He's 45!!???" But he never whines. He just goes about the business of kicking ass and producing more big gap marriages than everyone with more stable results. Asian female is the same. She is the most bashed female in american culture and males are bashed for dating her. The most hated. But she NEVER complains. She just goes about the business of creating the wealthiest biggest gap marriages with white males while white female cant handle skinny models (her cryptonite) and whines about EVERYTHING. Old white men and asian females are the LEAST whiniest people in existence.
    Black people? they look for excuses to whine. Madonna walked into that trap but said nothing racist.
