Madonna got dragged unexpectedly on Instagram Live yesterday, by her Black daughter.

One of the legendary singer's daughters said she was "prettier" that the Material Girl - because she has brown skin. Madonna seemed surprised by her daughter's claim.

Madonna has four adopted Black children - David, 13, Mercy, 12, and twin daughters Esterre and Stella, 5. All four were adopted in the African nation of Malawi.

Madonna was live with one of her 5 year old twins  - it was either Esterre and Stella, we can't tell. And the little girl said to Madonna's millions of fans, "I look prettier because I'm Brown."

Madonna seemed shocked by what the little girl said, and just said, "Oh, OK."

Here's the video:

Madonna has an organization, Raising Malawi, that aims to improve children's lives in the African nation. Madonna also opened a hospital in the African country, called Mercy James Children's Hospital - just opened in 2017. 

Nearly 10 years ago, Madonna went up against Malawi’s highest court to win the right to adopt then-4-year-old Mercy James.

Fast forward to today, the songstress opened the country’s first-ever pediatric surgery and intensive care center, which she named The Mercy James Institute for Pediatric Surgery and Intensive Care, after her now-12-year-old daughter.

At the opening ceremony a few years ago, Madonna recalled the emotional three-and-a-half year journey she went through to call Mercy her own after she had successfully adopted son David Banda in 2006.

“I met Mercy soon after I met my son David, but they were living in different orphanages. David was in Mchinji in Home of Hope, and Mercy was here in Blantyre at Kondanani. Mercy was suffering from malaria, and David from pneumonia. And when I held each of them in my arms, I whispered in their ears, that I would look after them. And I promised them that they would grow up into strong and healthy adults,” Madonna told the audience at the Queen Central Hospital.
