Sorry: Madonna Apologizes For Using N-Word

 Sorry: Madonna Apologizes For Using N Word

Over the years, Madonna‘s racy antics have been rendered even more so due to her unapologetic stance. However, it appears the Pop princess isn’t afraid of saying “sorry” when the occasion calls for it.

After causing furore last night following an Instagram picture which saw her use the “N-Word”, the singer has released a statement denouncing her actions.

Madonna’s apology after the jump…

“I am sorry if I offended anyone with my use of the N-word on Instagram.

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.”

**************

While we wildly doubt Madge is racist, one thing is certain — she is 100% out of touch. Granted the embarrassing yoga-moves she calls choreography confirmed this long-ago, her actions last night cemented it.

What else – beyond an overt desire to fit in with the “cool kids” – would possess a 55-year-old caucasian woman to use a word so soaked in a history of hate? Worse still, during a week that has seen such history spotlighted  by the success narrative of  ’12 Years A Slave’.  There’s just no excuse.

Beyond being woefully ill-advised, it just confirms that – like her latest music – her Madgesty may well be “past it”.

    She’s clearly not racist, she’s done more to help the children of Africa then even Oprah and she even has a black daughter. people need to stop getting so offended over a stupid word. we as black people should be more offended that our own people are killing each other off everyday, or that black kids and teens are dropping out of school and selling drugs to other blacks. but yet people get offend when someone uses “n****” we need to get it together.

    I still f*** with Madonna. She said what she said, I don’t really care. It irks me more when seeing black teens/young adults/grown ups on the block or on public transportation using nigha every other word in their sentence.. Nigha this.. My nihga that.. Nigha, nigha, nigha…and I hear that ALMOST DAILY here in NYC. I don’t see white ppl calling other whites “honky” or Asians calling eachother “chinks” or Hispanics “spicks”… Black ppl we need to do MUCH, MUCH better instead of the idiotic ploy of “well if your black you can sound ignorant as f*** and aay nigha all you want but others cant”.. It’s pretty pathetic actually. We need to do better

Puh-lease…

    In 2014, the term “n****” when used in the right context is used as a term of endearment.

    It’s slang .

    The word is synonymous with words like “man”, “dude”, and “guy”.

    Other than her race, I’d like to hear why so many people are against her using the word?

    I Don’t like the old hag, but either she did it for attention or she meant no harm. We have to understand that this new generation, that word does not have the same meaning. I wish NO ONE uses it, but what can we say when a top 10 hit was called “n***** in Paris”? But on the same coin, Eminem can say the F word all day long, yet Kobe and everyone else gets grilled. These double standards has to come to an end.

If y’all don’t like it being said then don’t use it to your friends. JESUS it should be offensive when ANYBODY uses it, not when Y’ALL CHOOSE it to be. Myself I DETEST this word, I DETEST it in movies, I DETEST it in music and I DETEST it when friends use it. It offends me so much, AND I’m Caucasian. I don’t like why it was used in the first place and I don’t like why it’s used now. It’s b*******….. But I mean it doesn’t need to be said from anyone. PERIOD.

    Well first off like I said, I HATE that word and I wish people of all races would just STOP using it regardless of the circumstances or manner of use. The word just involves too much pain to be okay to use in any manner by any person. That being said I will not hold it against Madonna and will forgive her because she called a white person the n-word in a
    non-stereotypical, non-racist, and non-discriminatory manner. I’m not saying it was okay, I think she was wrong to use it and doesn’t need to do these type of attention seeking stunts, it’s pretty ridiculous. However, it’s forgivable and she has earned her position as the reigning QOP. I don’t like the stunt but this doesn’t change how I feel about her in general.
