Madonna got into hot water this weekend when she posted a picture of her son Rocko sparring in a boxing ring with the caption ““No one messes with Dirty Soap! Mama said knock you out! #disnigga.”

Where does Madonna live? Where is the nearest empty stadium? She needs to have all of the seats. All. Of. Them.

After getting some critical comments, Madonna deleted her initial caption and reposted the pic with the caption “Ok let me start this again. #get off my dick haters!” Yeah, ok, no.

There is a very simple rule for non-black people who want to use the word nigga, nigger or anything like that. Do. Not. Do. It. Period.

The use of the word “nigga” amongst black people is something to be sorted out amongst black people. Non-blacks need not concern themselves with that. Just, don’t do it. Very simple. And the desire to say it, is troubling to say the least.

Madonna has two adopted black children, so this “nigga” moment is especially side eye-worthy for some folks.

Does Madonna get a “pass” for using the word nigga? Do you take issue with any non-black person using that word?

UPDATE: Madonna has now issued an apology. “I am sorry if I offended anyone with my use of the N-word on Instagram,” the singer said in a statement on Saturday, Jan. 18. “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.”
