Between winning the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes and maybe considering running for president in 2020, It’s hard to believe Oprah Winfrey found the time to clap back to an Instagram hater. But she did, in the classiest way possible.
On Saturday, the media mogul shared a video of the Time’s Up interview she had with Hollywood A-listers: Reese Witherspoon, Shonda Rhimes, America Ferrera, Tracee Ellis Ross, Natalie Portman, Kathleen Kennedy, and Nina Shaw. Her 12.2 million followers quickly racked up over 87,000 likes and nearly 3,000 comments on the video clip.
Comments of positive admiration flooded her post, but a negative one caught her attention.
One Instagram user @aubrey.grace commented: “I don’t like you.” So she decided to share some Winfrey wisdom with the troll.
The 63-year-old replied: “Then why are [you] here on this feed? Life is too short to follow and engage with people [you] don’t like. Peace out.”
She then continued to engage with her followers and do what she does best: inspire others.
To another commenter, she wrote: “Being a voice for those who’ve not discovered their own is part of my ‘calling.’ What’s yours…do you know yet?” she wrote.
