Another commented, "You gotta know what kind of signals it sends not only to her son, but also to kids around the world."

Madonna later addressed the backlash, captioning in another Instagram, "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!"
