When it comes to trolls, Whoopi Goldberg doesn't have time to educate them.

Goldberg shot one down when an insensitive Instagram user commented on a recent post of her after attending a performance of the West End production of the biograpical Tina: The Musical.


In the photo, Goldberg is posing with with actress Adrienne Warren, who plays the titular "What's Love Got To Do With It" singer.

The View co-host had nothing but high praises for the show and for Warren's portrayal of the iconic star.

"Just saw Tina On the West End. @adriennelwarren you inhale her!" Goldberg wrote for the photo's caption. "Thanks to you and this fantastic cast for a great ride!!!"


Many praised Goldberg's photo commemorating her visit to the show and posing with the actress still in her costume.

However, someone going by the handle "dallas024_" left a ridiculous comment scrutinizing Warren's wig and Goldberg's hair that was featured on the Instagram account "Comments By Celebs."

"That's a lot of fake hair in one picture," wrote the troll.

For the record, Goldberg sports dreadlocks and not a wig. She fired back, "Mine isn't fake. Do some homework."


Goldberg fans had some words for "dallas024" who turned a positive moment into a negative one.

Tina is currently playing at the London's Aldwych Theatre and is planned for a Broadway transfer for the fall in 2019 at a theater to be announced.

Tina Turner issued a statement expressing her excitement for her biographical musical that had its world premiere in the West End in April 2018.

"Bringing this musical to life on stage and working with this team has meant so much to me, I feel that it is in many ways a culmination of my career. London audiences have been and continue to be extraordinary."
"Now, the bright lights of Broadway are calling, and I'm very excited to share this beautiful show with New York audiences next year."
