Madonna isn’t one to shy away from headline grabbing photos, but this time around she actually didn’t mean to cause a controversy.

On Saturday (January 4), the Material Girl posted a photo of her son, Rocco holding a bottle of gin on her Instagram with the caption, “The party has just begun! Bring it! 2014.” The only problem is, her son is just 13 years old.

Shortly after posting the photo, which features two of Rocco’s friends also holding bottles of alcohol, many criticized Madonna for glamorizing under-age drinking since the legal drinking age in the United States is 21. As E! points out, the photo was taken in the Swiss Alps, which has a drinking age of 16 years old.
