Halle Berry is not going to let internet trolls have the last word! The 54-year-old actress took to instagram to share the message, “Women don’t owe you shit.”
And when some commenters apparently took offense at the sentiment, Berry was ready with some choice responses.
When one person responded, “He says women can’t stay with a man,” Berry replied, “Who says I want to stay with the wrong man? Because … I don’t.”
Another wrote: “Geesh Halle, have you ever had a problem with men in your life?” to which Berry responded with a series of laughing and crying emojis, writing, “No, they had problems with me.”
When someone else said that this was a double standard and that women look for men to take care of them, Berry quickly clarified, “No man has ever taken care of me … EVER!”
Another commenter wrote that Berry was to blame for all of her failed past relationships, saying she couldn’t stay with a man.
“Who said I wanted to stay with them?” Berry replied. “I mean, live your best life. If you make a wrong move, correct course, turn again, and start over.”
Berry also got personal, calling his ex Gabriel Aubry without directly mentioning him by name. Berry and Aubry share their daughter, Nahla, 12, and were previously involved in several court cases related to their custody and child support agreements.
After a commenter spoke about Berry owing her ex child support and raised the accusation that he had “called her the N-word,” she responded, “And it takes great strength every day to pay it off. And by the way, it’s wrong and it’s extortion! ”
Berry also shares her 7-year-old son Maceo with her husband, Olivier Martínez. She responded to another commenter on the subject of child support.
“As for child support, I feel like I can talk about it as I’ve been paying it for a decade. I feel like if a woman or a man has to pay child support, it is much more than reasonable needs to help. to SUPPORT the child, I think that’s wrong! “Berry wrote. “I understand that some parents (male or female) may need help, but I also feel that in these modern times both men and women have a responsibility to financially care for their children and to work hard and do everything possible to do so.”
Berry added that he felt the laws allow people to “USE children to be awarded money to live a lifestyle that they not only did not earn, but is far above and beyond the reasonable needs of the child, and that is ‘THE WRONG’ and where I see the abuse. ”
