Madonna Instagrams Her Teenage Son With Alcohol, Ignores The Backlash

Madonna kicked off the new year with a little controversy (naturally). While vacationing in the Alps, Madge and co. skied, boarded, lived in nature, and...posed with fancy alcohol. However, said company was primarily underage teens — even by European standards.
Take this one Instagram snap, below. Dipped in a cool-blue filter, the photo shows Madonna's 13-year-old son Rocco and his two buddies posing with bottles of Belvedere Vodka and Bombay Sapphire. The caption? "The party has just begun! Bring it!" The comments shaming Madonna's parenting came flying in, prompting the singer to post another Instagram (check it out after the jump) with the caption: "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!"
Whether or not any underage drinking occurred is up for debate — one that will likely pass in a days time. As to calling out Madonna for her public retort, well, people will rally on both ends of the spectrum. She will, however, keep calm and carry Instagram on. (Gossip Cop)
