Janelle Monáe says she's going to punish fans for liking a savage tweet about the way she dressed at the Grammys.
The actor and musician attended the 2023 Grammys ceremony on Sunday (5 February) wearing a stunning black dress paired with long arm-length gloves.
Despite donning the classy look, one fan opted to poke fun at the 37-year-old's previous outfit choices.
“Janelle Monáe finally showing off how fine she is instead of dressing like the monopoly man,” the fan wrote.
The singer appeared to take the comment pretty personally and replied: “No new music just for this.”
As the fan's tweet gained more and more likes, Monáe informed her followers that there will be 'no new tour' as a result.
She tweeted: “35.7k likes?? No new tour. hope it was worth it beloved.”
The fan's original tweet, which was posted on February 6, has since racked up a whopping 72.9k likes, at the time of writing.
It seems that their intention was merely a joke as the fan later commented: "If my dumb jokes got people talking about how dope Janelle Monae is then mission accomplished."
They added: "Stay mad, stay mad, stay mad, keep retweeting."
Two hours later, Monáe clearly saw the 'funny' side and replied to the fan: "Monopoly man?? You’re pretty and funny."
Known for both singing and acting, Monáe recently starred in he sequel to 2019's Knives Out.
Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery sees Daniel Craig return as master detective Benoit Blanc as he takes on a brand new case, this time revolving around tech millionaire Miles Bron (Edward Norton) and his closest pals.
If Norton and Craig wasn't enough of an all-star cast, you've also got the likes of Monáe, Kate Hudson and Dave Bautista.
But despite the mega 92 percent critics and audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes, it seems that viewers are still pretty wound up by one particular thing.
The film itself is supposedly set in the summer of 2020, and while most of us have tried to erase 2020 from our memory, it's impossible to forget what the world went through during the COVID-19 pandemic.
"#GlassOnion did NOT need to take place during covid… always hate when shows/films do it, especially now that we’re two years past it," one viewer thought.
A second added: "Not sure they needed to feature covid as a plot point?! #GlassOnion."
Another viewer slammed: "Watching Glass Onion, the Knives Out sequel-ish on Netflix.
"It has covid in it, so I'm already declaring it absolute dog s**t."
