Marsai Martin doesn’t have time for tasteless internet trolls.

On Thursday, a Twitter user tried to criticize the 13-year-old Black-ish star for her head size.

But Marsai, channeling her no-nonsense character Diane, simply shot back with a picture of the troll’s icon, saying, “But your whole head doesn’t fit in the Avi Circle… or are you hiding a bad closure?”

In the comments section on the Twitter post, Marsai also noted, “I was minding my own business… what does the size of my head have to do with anything? Weirdos.”

Twitter loved her response, with one user commenting, “She’s already missing edges and you stole what was left.”

“Don’t even justify this poor excuse for a human being with a response. You’ve achieved more than she has in half the time,” said another.

Marsai doesn’t play with trolls

This isn’t the first time a troll has tried (and failed) to come after Marsai for her looks. Back in November, someone tried to come for her on Instagram with the comment, “lay ur edges.”

BET noted her classy response: “I don’t have to, I like my hair coils naps and all.”

She’s too busy being amazing anyway

And why would Marsai give Twitter trolls the time of day when she’s already blazing her way through Hollywood? In addition to killing it in her role as Diane in Black-ish, she’s set to make her producing debut already in an upcoming comedy from Universal called Little, according to a report first published by The Hollywood Reporter. 

So, not only is Marsai Martin going to stretch her wings in acting and producing but also in bringing new ideas to the stage. We love this idea, especially because Hollywood needs more Black Girl Magic.

The Hollywood Reporter noted that the script was originally penned by Girls Trip screenwriter Tracy Oliver. But Drumline’s Tina Gordon Chism, who will direct the project, wrote the most recent version.

Girls Trip producers Will Packer and James Lopez are signed to produce along with Black-ish creator Kenya Barris. And Girls Trip’s Regina Hall and Josh Martin are also set to executive produce as well.

At just 13, Marsai is clearly going to keep on rocking the world as she gets older.
