Madonna overreacts

This morning's 3AM Girls column holds... well, not the front page, but certainly a space near the top of the column:

So when Madonna overheard someone taking a pop at her baby boy - there was only going to be one winner.

We can reveal that Madge was devastated when a female crew member bitched about her adopted son on the set of her husband Guy Ritchie's new film, RocknRolla.

Really? Someone picking on a two year-old? That is a bit nasty.
It's no surprise that the culprit is no longer working on the film - written and directed by Ritchie and about London's criminal underworld - which stars Thandie Newton and Gerard Butler.

Goodness. It must have been something terrible to justify taking away someone's livelihood.
[T]hings turned sour after Madonna overheard a conversation between two crew members.

One of them asked the other what the baby's name was. It is then claimed that one of the girls replied: "Lucky Bastard."

Oh. Is that it? It might have been a bit dodgy to say that within earshot of the family, but it's not even that bitchy - indeed, isn't Madonna's justification for bypassing the usual adoption rules in Malawi effectively the same sentiment, albeit better drafted?

It's almost as if Madonna is acting completely out of proportion. You can happily make entertainment out of murderers and heroes out of criminals, it seems, but slightly catty gags? That's just going too far.
