Madonna is once again in hot water.
And she has once again dropped her son right into the middle of the scandal.
A couple weeks after posting an Instagram shot her 13-yar old Rocco holding a bottle of gin - and telling critics to "get a sense of humor" - the Material Girl has published another photo of the teenager on the social media site.
In this case, Rocco is boxing and the accompanying caption rads: "No one messes with Dirty Soap! Mama said knock you ! #disnigga"
As you might expect, it was the hashtag that has landed Madonna in trouble.
Backlash quickly arose on Twitter, with one follower writing to the artist:
"MADONNA U NEED TO TAKE UR arthritis medicine instead of trying to be hip on the internet."
In response, Madonna deleted the image and then put it back up with a new caption that reads: “Ok let me start this again. #get off of my dick haters!”
What do you think of Madonna referring to her son a a "nigga?"
UPDATE: Madonna has now apologized for the use of the word, saying:
"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."
