Madonna apologises for racial slur in Instagram post

Madonna has apologised for using a racial slur in an Instagram post.

The 'MDNA' singer uploaded an image on Friday (January 17) of her 13-year-old son Rocco boxing, along with the caption: "No one messes with Dirty Soap! Mama said knock you out!" She then added: "#disnigga".

The Queen of Pop has since deleted the comment after fans harangued her for using the "n word", and she has now released a statement - via AP - in which she apologises for using wrongful language in her post.

Her statement read: "Forgive me. 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 apologise if it gave people the wrong impression."

Earlier this month, Madonna was criticised after posting a picture of her 13 year-old son holding a bottle of gin. Responding to the comments, she replied by posting another picture with the caption: "No one was drinking we were just having fun! Calm down and get a sense of humor! Don't start the year off with judgement!"
