    People Love This Destiny's Child Joke About Kelly Rowland And Michelle Williams

    And yes, of course it involves Beyoncé.

    As you probably already know, these three extremely talented women — Kelly Rowland, Beyoncé Knowles, and Michelle Williams — made up the now-disbanded group, Destiny's Child.

    Throughout their career as a group, the ladies gave us gems such as "Survivor," "Cater 2 U," and "Independent Women, Pt. 1," as well as many, many more iconic hits.

    Beyoncé was the lead singer of the group, which morphed into fodder that people still use to make playful jokes, sometimes at the expense of Rowland and Williams.

    This past Saturday, April 29, Rowland and Williams had a bit of a mini-reunion at the Wearable Art Gala at the California African American Museum. They both looked gorgeous, as usual...but their pose had a lot of distance between the women.

    And that was highlighted by @KgosiLesedi, who made this joke, which went viral:

    In a way, it does seem like the two were making space for the other member of their trio, Mrs. Knowles-Carter, and people couldn't get enough.

    @KgosiLesedi Muscle memory ‼️🤣😂

    The slightly shady tweet certainly made people chuckle.

    And one person joked that it might even be a contractual obligation for them to leave room for Bey.

    @KgosiLesedi @Tiffuhkneexoxo It may even be in the contract as a lifetime clause.

    And more of the same continued.

    @KgosiLesedi @Mr_Abam_ @michaelshaiyen @Eeman_jem @thiisisray I shouldn't be laughing this hard 😂😂😂😂😂

    Now, it should be noted that Beyoncé was also at the event, which was put on by her mother, Tina Lawson.

    She just didn't make it into that picture — though if she did, it would probably look a lot better than this terrible photoshop job I did.

    Fun and games aside, it can't be overlooked that Rowland and Williams have done plenty since the members of Destiny's Child went their separate ways, and the things they've individually accomplished haven't involved Beyoncé.

    Rowland has consistently released new music in the years after DC3 ended, and she welcomed a baby boy into the world in 2014.

    This year, she released the book Whoa, Baby!: A Guide for New Moms Who Feel Overwhelmed and Freaked Out (and Wonder What the #*$& Just Happened), so in addition to charting on Billboard, she's could potentially become a best-selling author.

    And Williams, like Rowland, has continued to record and release albums. She's also an accomplished stage actress, having performed in plays like The Color Purple, Fela!, and Aida as a lead.

    So while DC3 jokes probably won't ever die down, these ladies will always be laughing all the way to the bank.
