Did Jennifer Hudson just respond to Tina Knowles’ slight diss?

In case you missed it, earlier this week, Beyoncé’s mom was accused of slamming JHud after liking a comment stating, “Jhud sounds horrible.”

Oh hey #TinaKnowlesLawson 👀 Slip of the finger?

Shortly after, on Wednesday, Dec. 28, Knowles took to Instagram with a lengthy message to announce that she would be taking a break from the social media site after it was clear fans were not happy with her inadvertently liking a comment dissing the Grammy winner.

“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,” Knowles wrote.

“My children worried that I might accidentally touch something when looking at other sites and have warned me about it. They always say that I am not that great on social media I have to be very careful,” she continued, explaining that she must have “accidentally” liked the comment while scrolling through videos of her superstar daughter. “I absolutely would not have touched a like or dislike on one of these sites.”

"I never seen anything lak it".Just clowning around with my clowning around buddy Kaleb having fun😀 I am writing this commentary for Jennifer Hudson and not for the evil mean people that are making this into a social media ugly thing. 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 ! Mychildren worried that I might accidentally touch something when looking at other sites and have warned me about it . They always say that I am not that great on social media I have to be very careful . and somehow maybe I touched a button but the truth is I was on my Instagram and someone commented on Beyoncé (positive) by the way , and I went to look at their site and saw some good videos and performances of Beyoncé I came across the video of her and Jennifer (which I totally enjoyed) and I was looking at them I didn't even look at the comments or what people were saying till just now. and I absolutely would not have touched a like or dislike on one of these sites. I think if you look through my Instagram you'll see that I am not a hater and I am not negative about people so to Jennifer for my mistake of accidentally touching it which I don't remember doing I really apologize I totally love and Admire you❤️and I'd have to be pretty stupid to do that knowing it would be everywhere, but I will be taking a break from social media as this is the bad side of it. There are people who make thier living off of negativity.

Two days after Knowles’ announcement, Hudson appeared to respond to the drama in a post of her own. “Getting started on my New Years resolution list, hmmm let’s see,” the 35-year-old singer captioned a snap of her “2017 reminder to self.” “Don’t allow someone else’s ugly to mess up your beautiful.”

While it’s possible Hudson’s post had nothing to do with Knowles’ like-gate, the timing is interesting. What are your thoughts? Sound off in the comment section below.
