Kelly Clarkson has been pretty quiet about her divorce from husband Brandon Blackstock, but a recent tweet about the matter inspired the singer to bite back.
The tweet was apparently prompted by Kelly’s recent stint filling in for Simon Cowell on the America’s Got Talent judging panel. One Twitter troll speculated that Kelly’s busy career negatively affected her marriage.
Kelly Clarkson Responds To Twitter Troll About Divorce
The tweet in question has since been deleted, but according to E! News it read, “…no wonder her marriage didn’t work…surprise she has time for her kids…not the good old country girl we fell in love with…it’s all about Kelly being on tv…and no one else…no tears for her…but for her kids.”
On Thursday, Kelly took the time to clap back at the message. “Shaming a woman who has a great work ethic, is a great mom, and who steps up and fills in when a friends asks for a favor because that’s actually what ‘good old country girls’ do…. this can’t be who you are deep down,” she wrote.
“I have more faith in your heart. Aim higher please,” Kelly finished the tweet, adding a heart emoji. The response has over 17,000 likes, and many of Kelly’s fans shared their support and love for the singer in the replies.
“This is how you respond to a hater,” one fan wrote. Another pointed out that people don’t say these kinds of things about men with busy careers.
Kelly Has No Time For Mom Shaming On Twitter
This isn’t the first time Kelly Clarkson has fired back at criticism about her parenting on social media. In fact, she recently responded to the Twitter trolls before they even said anything about her decision to let daughter Rive Rose have a purple streak in her hair.
Kelly said 6-year-old River felt like Prince with her new style, playing air guitar and singing. She added, “and before I get attacked for being the worst mom ever, it’s safe, organic paint.” She added an eyeroll emoji.
There may be plenty of speculation about Kelly’s recent divorce from Brandon Blackstock, but Kelly herself has remained positive when talking about her ex. After recently winning a Daytime Emmy, she even thanked Brandon on Twitter.
“Thank you so much to @BBlackstock for believing in me & convincing me to do @KellyClarksonTV show,” she wrote. Fans praised her for keeping it classy.
