It’s hard to be mad when a celeb responds to peasant trolling with a good old fashioned “look at my bank account.” There’s simply no arguing with that. Who didn’t love it when Gabourey Sidibe shut down her Twitter haters with this?

Michelle Williams, the infamously least-notable member of Destiny’s Child, had her own bossy moment yesterday when she responded to ongoing shade with this tweet:

#PoorMichelle that's not what my accountant said! Y'all be blessed now..— Michelle Williams (@RealMichelleW) April 3, 2014

The #poormichelle hashtag refers to ongoing meme and entire website which is a “compilation of all the times Michelle Williams got the short end of the Destiny's Child stick.”


And not to beat a dead horse here but have you heard Michelle’s verse on Soldier? Clearly out of her league. It’s like putting Meryl Streep side by side with Lindsay Lohan or having Lady Gaga sing and dance next to Beyonce.

Regarding the response: good for her. She certainly does not need your pity and has no time for your trolling.

Having said that: #poormichelle is an incredible source of entertainment and deserves to be highlighted.


Here are some of the times that Michelle really did get the short end of the stick:

The time when a reporter asked if she was a singer…


The time when Beyonce got a pool, Kelly got a car and Michelle got a lawnchair…

The time when she fell on 106 & Park (Kelly stops for no one)…


The time she wasn’t able to enjoy the weather…

The time she wasn't allowed to enjoy the weather #PoorMichelle— #PoorMichelle (@PoorMichellee) April 4, 2014

The time she faced the wrong way…


The time Coca-Cola ignored her very existence…

Keep cashing checks Michelle! We’ll be here to call you out on that time you're the only one without a drum stand.
