Leave it to Oprah Winfrey to dismiss her Instagram haters while simultaneously helping them live their best life.


On her official Instagram account, Oprah shared a clip from an interview she conducted with Time’s Up backers Reese Witherspoon, Shonda Rhimes, America Ferrera, Tracee Ellis Ross and Natalie Portman.

Pretty standard Oprah stuff.

Well, a troll tried it.

Instagram user and petty, trolling-ass fool “aubrey.grace” thought, as trolls do, that this was an opportune time to tell the media mogul “i don’t like you.”


Pretty standard troll stuff.

But Winfrey—or, more correctly, the person who runs Winfrey’s Instagram account—was not taking Aubrey’s mess.

“Then why are you here on this feed?” Oprah responded, asking the question every single person who has ever read something on the internet has either thought or screamed into their laptops. “Life is too short to follow and engage with people u don’t like.”


Oprah finished her dismissal of the troll with a succinct “Peace Out” and chucking of the color-correct emoji deuces.

I doubt that this is the worst example of assholery Oprah has ever had to deal with, but I, for one, feel mighty blessed that the Divine Ms. Winfrey had time this weekend. The image of Oprah peering through her instantly iconic black reading glasses as she slowly mutters, “All y’all can get it” and hits reply to her ashy troll is all the 2018 mood board I need.
