Destiny's Child super legend Michelle Williams (I believe that's her official title), has clapped back in the most expert way to a troll on Instagram who commented on her recent post telling her she should have children. Responding to the comment Williams very articulately explained to the troll exactly why that opinion gets absolutely zero time.

Williams is currently promoting her upcoming book Checking In, a heartfelt memoir all about her decades-long struggle with depression and anxiety that eventually led her to call time on her career and focus more on herself and taking stock. The memoir is scheduled for release in May.

After she posted a video to her Instagram detailing how fans can get their hands on a signed copy of the book, one person decided to leave a comment on the post saying, "Michelle, I love you but you need some children...u r 2 bored."

Showing up the comment for what it was Williams responded, "You're an idiot!!!! 馃槀馃槀馃槀." But the commenter still didn't get the message and replied, "Woooooooow that was uncalled for. Thank you." At which point Michelle left one final response, explaining exactly why it's not okay to tell a person to have kids.

"No, what's uncalled for is you telling a woman that she needs to have children," she said. "What if that woman CAN'T have children?? What if that woman DOESN'T WANT children?? WATCH YOUR MOUTH and FINGERS ... Don't you ever let that come out of your mouth or your fingers on a comment section again to ANYBODY."

Finally she added, "I would have ignored [you] but too many people need to stay out of a woman's uterus!!! Now scram and be blessed!!!"

I believe it's time for a big round of applause for Michelle Williams!
