If you were wondering why pictures from Solange Knowles stopped showing up on your instagram, the reason is because of all the negativity that was thrown at pictures of her young son and her friends. The singing beauty revealed in an interview that she doesn’t care about people criticizing her, but the line was crossed when the attacks were aimed at her innocent loved ones.
“A part of me kind of turns an eye to it and then apart of me really feels like the humanization of artists has really been stripped down. I think one of the reasons I actually went off of Instagram because I was on there for little awhile was because I would post pictures of my son or my friends and they would be criticizing. My whole thing is that I’m completely fully, capable of handling negativity for myself, but to put that kind of access to negativity behind people who didn’t ask for that was really troubling to me.”
It’s one thing to hate on a celebrity, but quite another to put that negative energy toward children who didn’t ask to be born into this life and have no way of defending themselves. I am not mad at Solange. She is a mother first and an artist second.
