Madonna Slammed For 13-Year-Old Son Drinking Pic

Posted Monday January 6, 2014 2:40 PM GMT

She’s never been afraid to ruffle a few feathers, and Madonna stirred up some controversy with her recent Instagram pic of her 13-year-old son Rocco Ritchie.

In the shot, taken in the Swiss Alps, the teen boy is seen holding a bottle of top-shelf gin while two of his friends display vodka bottles.

Madge included the caption, “The party has just begun! Bring it! 2014,” despite the fact that her son is three years too young to legally consume alcohol in Switzerland (the drinking age over there is 16).

In response, Madonna’s followers wrote messages like, “It ain’t bad motherhood, it ain’t good either,” and, “Booze is not something to make jokes about. Period!”

In defense of the “Material Girl,” one fan wrote, “They are just holding the bottles…I took a pic of my then 2 year old niece with a wine bottle in her hands…posted it on facebook…everybody found it funny & NO ONE reacted like some of you guys did!!! But maybe we germans are more tolerant & have a better sense of humor!”

Putting an end to the crankiness, Madonna finally wrote, “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!”
