Madonna is no stranger to controversy, so when she received a ton of backlash for posting a photo of her 13-year-old son Rocco Ritchie holding a liquor bottle on Instagram, she was prepared to defend herself.
The photo shows Rocco with two of his friends, both underage, on New Years Eve holding liquor bottles with a caption that reads: “The party has just begun! Bring it! 2014.” When fans saw the picture, they were outraged and Madonna immediately began receiving criticism for allegedly letting her underage son drink.
“Booze is not something to make jokes about. Period!” one user wrote. “You gotta know what kind of signals it sends not only to her son, but also to kids around the world,” another fan warned.
When Madonna read the comments that were made on her photo she decided to post another picture of the boys and captioned it by saying: “No one was drinking we were just having fun! Calm down and get a sense of humor! Don’t start the year off with judgement!”
Rocco didn’t help matters any. He posted another controversial photo, on his personal Instagram account, of him holding a glass of, what appears to be, champagne.
