If you follow Beyonce and Solange’s mother on Instagram, then you know that every Thursday she does what she calls “corny joke time.”

Tina Knowles Lawson does a short Instagram video where she tells a “corny joke” and she typically cracks up afterward.

However, apparently, a woman thinks that “we don’t need” Mama Tina’s corny jokes “right now.”

On Thursday (Mar. 19), per usual, Lawson took to Instagram to share a “corny joke” about corduroys, and a woman told her, “Girl, take them bangs and disappear with your daughter and grandchildren for a little while. We don’t need this right now.”

Lawson wasn’t here for the snarky woman’s commentary, so she responded: “with love.” “First of all, I am not a girl. So try to conjure up a little respect and secondly if you don’t need it then get off my page and go where you like what you see,” Lawson told the woman. “With love.”
