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!

Momager to the rescue!
Well, sort of. In an interview with Australia's 2DayFM, Kris Jenner dished on Kanye West's alleged battery of teen who reportedly called Kim Kardashian a "n****r lover" and apparently threatened her:

We knew he couldn’t have said anything THAT awful!
Sylvester Stallone stirred up some controversy when he allegedly used a racial slur on Thursday in response to a paparazzo.
Well it turns out he didn’t say that at all.
Frank Pesce, the man who was standing next to Sly at the time of the incident, said:

And just when we thought the dust had settled around the latest Lena Dunham controversy…
Turns out, the Girls creator HERSELF is not too cool with comedienne Lisa Lampanelli using the N-word to describe their friendship, and despite the argument one could make that there was no demeaning or belittling intention behind its usage in this specific instance, she is still HELLA uncomfortable with Twitter being the place to discuss such an explosive, hotly-debated issue!
After being criticized on the social media site for not taking a public stance on the drama, Lena responded:

Looks like he was telling the truth!
After a crazy day of dramz involving Alec Baldwin and a New York Post reporter and her photographer, things might finally start to settle down.
The audio tape that was supposed to prove Alec had said a whole lot of hateful and threatening things isn’t doing that at all.
In fact, the tape has NO mention of any racial slurs coming from Alec’s mouth.
We have to admit we're happy to hear that!
Along with that, Alec is caught saying
