Pop icon Madonna is far from a racist, but a recent post on her Instagram account Friday night has some followers outraged. As TMZ reports Jan. 18, the Material Girl is being ripped for dropping the N-bomb while bragging about her son Rocco Ritchie.

As the pop superstar's parenting skills have already been criticized, Madonna only added fuel to the fire by using the racial slur on her own son. The social media drama started on Friday when Madonna uploaded a photo of her son Rocco fighting in the boxing ring. She posted the photo along with a caption that read:

"No one messes with Dirty Soap! Mama said knock you out! #disn**ga."

After receiving complaints from followers, the pop diva deleted the comment and followed it up by posting "Ok let me start this again. #get off of my d**k haters!"

Although the word may have been used as a term of endearment, the use of the word by a figure like Madonna in any form can be viewed as irresponsible, an irresponsibility in parenthood that already had critics firing away at the multi-talented star.

Madonna responded to previous criticism after a photo of Rocco appeared with him holding bottles of alcohol with friends, writing that they were just having fun and to not "start the year off with judgment!"

Madonna is on quite a roll so far in 2014.
