Halle Berry won over the Internet by taking down a troll.
The 50-year-old actress posted a photo of her children--daughter Nahla, 8, and son Maceo, 3, on her Instagram but cropped out their faces, and so an Internet troll called her out for hiding them.
"What's with the hiding of the faces? They're beautiful children why not show them off?" the follower wrote.
Halle cropped her childrens' faces to protect their privacy, and she replied with a message to defend her decision.
"I've noticed you have said this several times now so let me be clear-- I'm not at all ashamed of my children," Halle responded. "I try to find creative ways to incorporate them into my feed because they are the biggest part of my life, but I also work very hard to keep their identities as private as I can considering they are only children."
She continued: "It's my belief, and I'm not criticizing others who have different beliefs, that it's my job as their mother to protect their privacy as best I can. When they grow and they're of age and they want share their images on the Internet, that will be for them to decide, not me. Feel me? Have a beautiful day."
There are over 500 comments praising Halle and her parenting skills as a result of her message, and believe it or not, she even won over praise from her initial troll.
The response read, "@halleberry doesn't think badly of me or she would've blocked me and I wasn't being negative in the comments, just stating my opinion and she stated hers which I respect and have always respected. I stand on my position I want to see more of Halle Berry I love her more than any of you out there otherwise you wouldn't be satisfied with not seeing a lot of her."
Talk about a relentless fan!
