According to a report from Entertainment Tonight, Michelle Williams recently took to her Instagram to fight back against the never-ending confusion of her identity with the actress of the same name. The former Destiny’s Child singer took to her IG to say she had been sent many DMs from people who thought she was the Dawson’s Creek alum.
The actress, who took home an Emmy Award on Sunday for her part in Fosse/Verdun, gave a powerful speech this past weekend on the necessity of equal pay, especially for female POCs. Williams, the singer, laughed at the fact people are even managing to confuse her with the actress, considering Michelle is white and she is black.
Williams asked in her post how people managed to confuse her for a white woman. Michelle joked that she’s clearly African-American; she’s not mixed with anything either, neither Persian nor Russian. Williams went on to say that she doesn’t understand why people are sending her those messages, however, Williams supports the actresses’ comments wholeheartedly. The singer stated that she thought Michelle’s speech was awesome.
As it was previously reported, Williams stood up on the stage on Sunday night to accept her very first Emmy Award, and while she was up there, she called for equality. This issue is especially pertinent for Williams due to a recent incident involving Mark Wahlberg. In January of 2018, Michelle criticized the fact she wasn’t paid the same amount as Wahlberg for her role in All the Money in the World.
However, it was later revealed that Michelle willingly offered to do the role for free when producers and the director needed to reshoot the scenes amid Kevin Spacey’s sexual misconduct controversy that led to his parts being cut out of the film.
Regardless of the Emmys speech, this isn’t the first time that Williams has been mistaken for the singer. In December of 2017, the actress said to Entertainment Tonight that she had taken her daughter, Matilda, to a Stevie Wonder concert.

This is an important distinction because Williams (not the actress) is currently being confused for Williams (not the singer). Williams (the singer) took to Instagram after people in her comments were upset about the speech Williams (the actress) made at the Emmys on Sunday night, calling for equal pay and pointing out that women of color make less than white men and white women.
