Some social media subscribers go too far with their comments. Such was the case a few days ago when one follower called Solange Knowles’ son, Julez, ugly. Like any other mother who is protective of her son, the singer didn’t take the cyber bullying lightly but rather rendered a carefully crafted response.


“Jussst as I thought it was safe to share pictures again, a young’n like you decides to use her time to spread ugliness,” shared Knowles. “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.”

Many celebs have chosen to refrain from sharing pictures of their kids on social media sites because of criticism and exploitation. It was just a few weeks ago that Amber Rose cited media prowling as her basis for keeping her son out of the spotlight.

Julez is Solange Knowles’ only child with ex-husband Daniel Smith. He celebrated his eleventh birthday last month.
