Halle Berry Responds to Troll with ‘Shrimp’ Comment After Naked Photo Goes Viral

Halle Berry just confused an internet troll who criticized her racy photo, and all we have to say is…yaaasss!

Over the weekend, the 56-year-old actress posted a naked photo on social media, featuring herself enjoying a glass of wine from her balcony. The caption read, “I do what I wanna do. [lips emoji] happy Saturday.”

The post received plenty of supportive and positive reactions. But it didn’t take long for Berry to catch wind of one not-so-kind, now-deleted Tweet. “Imagine being in your 50s, still posting nudes for attention in menopause when you should be chilling with the grandkids,” it read, according to People magazine. “Aging with dignity is no longer a thing.”

Berry responded with a fun fact about shrimp to divert the conversation (and confuse the critic). She wrote, “Did you guys know the heart of a shrimp is located in its head?”

Fans flooded the replies with words of support for the actress’s response. And on Instagram, her followers praised her in the comments section. One person wrote, “I think it’s tastefully done. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that.” Another added, “Your life—your body—your choice.” Someone else wrote, “Well behaved women never made history.”

When in doubt, kill them with kindness confusing facts.
