Like engagements on Chrissy day, Blair Waldorf and Dan Humphrey and 2016 and positivity, some things just don’t mesh well together. Oh yeah, and parents and social media. That’s a bloody bad mix, something Beyoncé‘s mumma, Tina Lawson, proved on Instagram this week.
The 62-year-old business woman, fashion designer and OG stage mum cooked it when she came across a video of her prized possession Bey performing with Jennifer Hudson, and liked a comment that said “Jhud sounds horrible“.
Oh mumma, literally.
Rather than going denial mode on her cock-up, Tina acknowledged it head-on with a standard Insta post that had zero relevance to the photo / video she’d just put up. Her choice? A sunset video with a novel of an explainer to her girl Jhud. It’s appropriate in the same way a car selfie has nothing to do with Father’s Day.
TL;DR but below’s the best bits:
SHE LOVES JENNIFER (SAME TBH)
“I’ve known Jennifer Hudson for many years and have totally been in admiration of her talent and beauty and kindness I would never ever say anything negative about her or agree with anything negative!”
SHE’D BEEN WARNED
“My children worried that I might accidentally touch something when looking at other sites and have warned me about it. They always say that I am not that great on social media I have to be very careful…I came across the video of her and Jennifer (which I totally enjoyed) and I was looking at them I didn’t even look at the comments or what people were saying till just now. and I absolutely would not have touched a like or dislike on one of these sites.”
SHE’S TAKING AN INSTA HIATUS
“I’d have to be pretty stupid to do that knowing it would be everywhere, but I will be taking a break from social media as this is the bad side of it. There are people who make their living off of negativity.“
You let it out, honey. Put it in the Insta.
