Haters gonna hate! Madonna has had enough of the bad mom claims on social media, and doing so responded the best way possible. She posted a photo on Instagram of her four kids alongside the caption, “Its possible to be an entertainer and a good mother!!!” she wrote on the post. “Too bad we don’t live in a society where many encourage strong independent single working moms!”
The response stems from a controversial incident this past Christmas where Madonna tried to force her son to spend the holiday with her. According to PageSix, when Rocco,15, disobeyed his mom’s demand to board a plane from London — where he’s staying with his filmmaker dad, Guy Ritchie — Madonna ran to court Wednesday to force the teen’s return to New York. The issue spawned lots of backlash towards Madonna.
