When our tween and her friends pose for party pics, they strike “supermodel” poses, stick out their tongues or throw on Dad’s hat or Mom’s fancy scarf. When Madonna’s tween and his pals pose for party pics, they grab bottles of booze and their famous mom posts it for her million-plus Instagram fans to see.
Yep, the Material Girl has stirred up yet another controversy, with her recent posting showing her 13-year-old, Rocco, and two buds, with vodka and gin in hand, and the caption “The party has just begun! Bring it! 2014.”
With nearly 22,000 likes, it would appear she has plenty of fans who applaud the image of a youngster hitting the bottle for the New Year. “I wish Madonna was my mom,” one poster commented. “A little booze never killed nobody,” wrote another.
Of course, the photo, taken at a ski resort in Switzerland, had many up in arms, saying images of kids and alcohol is no joking matter and calling them shameful. The criticism was enough to bring Madonna herself to respond, taking to Instagram again in defense of the image: “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!”
Or, in other words, #SorryShe’sNotSorry.
