Madonna Refers To Her Son as ‘Dis Nigga,’ Is Sorry But Not Sorry

Over the weekend, Madonna posted a photo on Instagram of her 13-year-old son, Rocco Ritchie, training stand-up with the caption, “No one messes with Dirty Soap! Mama said knock you out! #disnigga”

People had problems with the “#disnigga” tag as one of the first comments was, “Really Madonna? Why do you think it’s EVER appropriate for ANYONE to use that word?! Total disrespect.”

Clearly, Madonna has yet to earn the “nigga pass.” It’s an honor rarely bestowed upon anyone and when it is, there’s a big ceremony and a full page ad taken out in PEOPLE magazine to notify everyone.

Madonna took the picture down and reposted it with a non-apology. “Ok let me start this again. #get off of my dick haters!,” she wrote this time showing her complete lack of understanding of how hashtags work.

Finally, after much facepalming, her publicist must have convinced Madonna to issue an apology.

“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,” she said. “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.”

Basically, she’s sorry you were offended. Oddly, she didn’t also write that her adopted children Mercy and David are black and that means she can’t be racist. She missed a golden opportunity.

Uhm, hello? N-word=nigger. Affectionate bastardization by AA’s into a term of endearment successfully thwarting the denigrating (ehem) aspect of its original=nigga #dumbassesaintnodadiff

Why should she be sorry?

She didn’t call a black person the “n-word” to demean or dehumanize him.

This “different people get to live by a different set of rules” is why all this crap is still going on today.

Biggest non-story of the century.

Victor, as a black woman, I feel I need to help you understand something that is just true, whether you like it or not. Using the word ‘nigga’ is inappropriate and offensive to a lot of people. Being a racist and using the word, or being a self proclaimed color-blind, philanthropic, liberal, adoptive parent who uses the word, doesn’t make it less offense to a lot of people. Just because someone like Madonna feels she should be able to say it, doesn’t mean she can without offending people. The word is offensive. No matter who uses it. But as a… Read more »

The first thing that intelligent, rational people of all races need to do is understand that no, all blacks don’t use that term. There are plenty of us who don’t see a difference in its use and find it abusive and abhorrent. We would never think it or allow it to leave our lips. The same people who use the ‘well, they use it, too!’ argument when it comes to that word are the same people who only quantify all blacks into one group when it’s convenient or beneficial. That being said, I have yet to see a white person… Read more »
