A rude Instagram user insulted Solange Knowles‘ son, Daniel Julez Smith, Jr, by calling the boy “ugly” and saying he had a face only a mother could love.
Solange posted this photo of Julez, who just turned 11, on her Instagram page on Saturday. The boy was dressed as rap icon LL Cool J for Halloween.
As you read Solanges response — which is riddled with comma abuse and run on sentences — try to remember that she was probably off her meds that day.
“Jussst as I thought it was safe to share pictures again, a young’n like you decides to use her time to spread ugliness. 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 judge, that I will most likely respond, and that he receives enough love and celebration at home that its 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.”
