Damage Control?? Madonna Graces Grammy Awards Red Carpet With Adopted Son David Banda

Well looky, looky. In the midst of the fallout stemming from her use of the N-word on Instagram, Madonna showed up on the red carpet at last night’s Grammy Awards ceremony with her adopted African son, David Banda.

The N-word incident occurred over a week ago when the pop icon posted a picture of her other son, Rocco Ritchie, on IG with the hashtag “#disni—a.” Not surprisingly, Madonna was verbally dragged for her use of the derogatory term, which prompted the ‘material girl’ to delete and repost the picture, replacing its original caption with, “#get off my d—k haters!” Following that failed attempt at trying to be cool, Madonna apologized in a statement that read: “Forgive me. 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.”

Last night while on the Grammys red carpet, she and her son David posed for pictures wearing matching tuxes. The whole setup was cute, but many questioned whether the stunt was an attempt at damage control in response to the N-word furor. Thoughts?
