Of all the things we know Madonna to be — sloppy isn't one of them. The pop legend recently threw some very inappropriate shade at Beyonce and Jay-Z, which had racist undertones, and then tried to cover it up. She fixed the post on Instagram but not on Facebook and Twitter.

Damn, Madonna — you getting sloppy.

A few days ago, Beyonce and Jay-Z released the first song of their joint album Everything Is Love. Titled Apeshit, the track was filmed in the Louvre Museum and made for one of the most iconic pop culture statements.

While the music video, directed by Ricky Saiz, acquired rave reviews owing to its stunning visual imagery and quirky use of the Louvre setting, Madonna, for one, was not impressed.

Madonna posted a manipulated image of Bey and Jay standing with their backs to the camera staring at a wall of the Louvre. But instead of the Renaissance art, they seemed to be staring at pictures of Madonna.

She originally captioned the image, "Learning from the Master . . . lol." This obviously sent the Beyhive into an uproar. People couldn't help but notice how inappropriate and rather racist the post was. 

"Did you really just post a pic of 2 black people looking at you and refer to yourself as 'the master'? Bi**h you done lost your goddamn mind," a Tweeter commented. 

After the backlash, Madonna (or maybe her team) decided on some quick and awkward damage control. First, they disabled the comments on the Instagram post. Then they removed the word 'master,' and changed the caption to, "Learning"

But the post still has the original caption on Facebook and Twitter. Umm... okay. Tweeple are still angry though. Have a look.
