St. Lunatics leader Nelly is going to need more than an apology from pop icon Madonna to get over her controversial use of the N-word last week.
A few days ago, the St. Louis, Missouri native briefly spoke on the controversy the singer sparked via her Instagram page.
Madonna straight “f**ked up” when she dropped the N-word online in a shout-out to her son … so says the rapper Nelly, who tells TMZ, “She need to get her sh*t right.” Nelly was leaving a Grammy party at 1OAK nightclub on the Sunset Strip when we asked about Madge’s super-controversial Instagram post … the one where she referred to her white son Rocco as a “n**ga.” Nelly says he’s cool with Madonna because she apologized … but it’s clear from Nelly, Madge doesn’t have, or ever will have, a pass to use the N-word. … no matter how many black kids she adopts. (TMZ)
After receiving tons of backlash, Madonna issued a full-fledged statement courtesy of her representative Liz Rosenberg last week.
“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 apologize if it gave people the wrong impression. Forgive me.” (CNN)
According to initial reports, the music diva sent shockwaves after using the offensive term to describe her son.
Madonna has a strange way of bragging about her son — she posted a pic of him boxing with the hashtag … “disni**a” … and she immediately got blasted for it. Madonna posted the photo of Rocco Ritchie on Instagram Friday night with the caption, “No one messes with Dirty Soap! Mama said knock you out! #disni**a.” Dirty Soap is clearly a nickname for Rocco. As for the hashtag — who the Hell knows? (TMZ)
Following some expected backlash, the 55-year-old simply re-worded her caption.
Some outraged followers ripped her for it … with comments like, “MADONNA U NEED TO TAKE UR arthritis medicine instead of trying to be hip on the internet.” #truth. 5:50 PM PT — Madonna changed the photo caption to say, “Ok let me start this again. #get off of my d*ck haters!” (TMZ)
