On Saturday (Jan. 4), Madonna posted a photo of her 13-year-old son Rocco and his friends holding liquor bottles with the caption, "The party has just begun! Bring it! 2014."
Almost instantly, fans leapt to Instagram to express their feelings in more than 1,300 comments since the photo was uploaded, with an additional 21,000 likes.
Yesterday (Jan. 5), Madonna responded with another photo of her teenage son, defending the original post: "No one was drinking we were just having fun! Calm down and get a sense of humor!" she captioned the photo. "Don't start the year off with judgement!"
