Solange Has a Classic Response for Instagram Commenter Who Called Her Son 'Ugly'
Solange Knowles just ran a clinic on how to handle a disrespectful Internet troll in the classiest way possible.
The incident stems from a Halloween picture Knowles posted on Friday of her 11-year-old son, Julez, who dressed as LL Cool J circa 1987.

"So cute but at the same time he ugly," a user wrote.
The diss would have prompted most mothers to go into full mama bear mode, but Knowles took the high road, using the moment to calmly spread a positive message.
"Jussst as I thought it was safe to share pictures again, a young'n like you decides to use her time to spread ugliness," Knowles wrote. "I don't fault you, I can only imagine why you would feel the need to say such things, but thanks again for being a reminder that out of all the love and wonderful energy shared, that when I open up a space for an innocent beautiful being like my boy to be criticized and judged, that I WILL most likely respond, and that he receives enough love and celebration at home that it's just not worth it to go down this road. I hope that this really resonates with you and you make better decisions in the future towards how you use your words towards innocent children. And @ro.rxd get ya friend because this could have truly gone south if I was in the wrong mood."
Jay Z can attest to that. The model/actress was captured on security camera striking her brother-in-law in an elevator as she, Jay Z and Beyonce were leaving the Met Gala on May 5, 2014.

Similarly, Ariana Grande had to set a body shamer straight on Monday after the commenter compared her unfavorably to Modern Family star Ariel Winter.
"Got asked if I'd prefer @arielwinter1 or @ArianaGrande lol," the user posted, according to a screenshot Grande tweeted on Monday. "It would DEFINITELY be @arielwinter1. Curves are sexy. Sticks aren't."
"Tweets, comments, statements like this are not okay about anyone!!!" Grande, 22, responded. "We live in a day and age where people make it IMPOSSIBLE for women, men, anyone to embrace themselves exactly how they are. Diversity is sexy! Loving yourself is sexy! You know what is NOT sexy? Misogyny, objectifying, labeling, comparing and body shaming! Talking about people's bodies as if they're on display ASKING for your approval/opinion. THEY ARE NOT!!! CELEBRATE YOURSELF. CELEBRATE OTHERS. The things that make us different from one another make us BEAUTIFUL. BODY BOUNDARIES. LOVE LOVE LOVE ONLY."
