Solange Knowles shared a picture of her 11-year-old son, Julez, on Instagram on Friday (Oct. 30), showing off his LL Cool J Halloween costume. As a multitude of fans showered the picture with positive comments, one user offered commentary on the singer’s offspring, calling him “ugly.”
“So cute but at the same time he ugly,” the user wrote.
Knowles took the classy route, reprimanding the user for “spreading ugliness.” Writing that though she took the liberty of sharing the photo of Julez, she understands that she makes him susceptible to criticism. “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,” she wrote.
And while the singer kept her couth about the ordeal, she did end her reply by clarifying that “this could have truly gone south if I was in the wrong mood.” Read Solange’s full response to one Internet troll in the photo below:
