Solange Knowles, 29, lashed out against a disrespectful commenter who called her 11-year-old son, Julez, “ugly.”
Knowles posted a pic of the 11-year-old’s Halloween costume on the social media site with the caption, “Young cool J too cool for ghost and goblins,” on Friday.
The photo was of Knowles’ son with ex-husband Daniel Smith who was dressed in a red Adidas track suit with gold headphones around his neck, giving the camera a stern look.
@alexandriaaaf: “So cute but at the same time he ugly.”
Knowles responded stating:
“@alexandriaaaf Jussst as I thought it was safe to share pictures again, a young’n like you decides to use her time to spread ugliness,” she began. “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.”
In addition, Knowles stated:
“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.”
Many people felt as though it was disrespectful so they had some words to share as well in support of Knowles.
@tanwhite12: All the beautiful things said can’t be unwritten. Another persons limited beliefs and ugly spirit can’t block beauty, truth, or light . We can choose to focus and reply to the good, or focus and reply on what we don’t want. All the beauty here , but the ugly grabs are attention and focus.“
