Madonna's Instagram account sparked quite the controversy over the weekend.

The singer shared a photo of her 13-year-old son, Rocco Ritchie, holding a bottle of gin with two friends who were holding bottles of vodka. Madonna captioned the photo (above, right) with the text, "The party has just begun! Bring it! 2014."

The photo, which has generated more than 21,000 "likes" at press time, was taken while Madonna and her son were in the Swiss Alps, where the legal drinking age is 16, while in the United States, the legal age is 21.

Following several negative comments on the original photo, Madonna followed up with another photo on Instagram, with a caption that reads: "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!"

Madonna is a mother to four children. She welcomed her eldest daughter, Lourdes, with former boyfriend Carlos Leon, son Rocco with former husband Guy Ritchie, and adopted two children, David and Mercy, from Malawi.
