Madonna Sparks Controversy By Posting Photo of Her 13-Year-Old Son Holding Alcohol
What the pop queen was thinking as she posted a photo on Instagram of her 13-year-old son, Rocco Ritchie, and two of his pals, all holding bottles of booze!
“The party has just begun! Bring it! 2014,” Madonna captioned the pic, which she posted Saturday night on Jan. 4.
In the photo, Madonna’s son Rocco, by director Guy Richie, is seen showing off a bottle of Bombay Sapphire gin, while his other two friends are each holding bottles of Belvedere vodka. Though the young teens aren’t seen actually drinking in the pic, the idea of posting the pic which shows underage boys holding liquor bottles quickly inspired heated reactions from Madonna’s fans.
“It is poor judgment to glorify substances to children,” one of her fans wrote.
Another joined the tirade, and wrote: “Sure it’s not anyone’s business but we are all free to our own opinion ! He’s toooo young to be drinking! BOOM!”
However the Material Girl seems not to care about what others are 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 judgment!” she wrote.
The image has come just a few days after Rocco posted his own New Year’s day pictures of himself holding what appears to be a glass of Champagne and another, posing in front of a liquor cabinet.
It’s no doubt that Madonna is probably a pretty cool mom, but these pics have left fans wondering if she’s too lenient to let her kids grow up so fast.
