Tina Knowles-Lawson, mother of Beyoncé and Solange Knowles, accidentally liked an Instagram post trash-talking Jennifer Hudson's singing. And the backlash was bad.

So bad, in fact, that Knowles-Lawson has decided to sign off social media.

It all started when someone posted a comment saying, "Jhud sounds horrible" along with a clip of Hudson and Beyoncé in Dreamgirls together on the 10th anniversary of the film.

She quickly corrected her mistake, but not before the backlash ensued.

On her own Instagram, Knowles-Lawson explained the mistake, saying, "I've known Jennifer Hudson for many years and have totally been in admiration of her talent and beauty and kindness I would never ever say anything negative about her or agree with anything negative!"

She then added that she would be taking a break from Instagram.

"...I will be taking a break from social media as this is the bad side of it. There are people who make thier [sic] living off of negativity," she wrote.
