Keyshia Cole was not impressed by Michelle Williams' performance on Sunday, when Destiny's Child reunited for the first time since 2006.

Beyonce's Super Bowl halftime show doubled as a Destiny's Child reunion when Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland took to the Superdome stage in New Orleans to perform "Bootylicious," "Independent Women" and "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)" on Sunday night.

Although the spectacle received accolades aplenty, R&B singer Cole managed to find fault with 1/3 of the group's performance.

Cole's shot at Williams wasn't the only shade she threw Sunday night.

She also seemed to take aim at Queen Bey, tweeting, "And yes my mom uses drugs yes it's hard. Yes I'm from Oakland and made it damn far without influential biological parents!" Beyonce's parents, Tina and Mathew Knowles, helped foster the 31-year-old star's career when she began performing as a young girl in Texas.

Destiny's Child fans rushed to the defense, according to MTV News, and Cole later attempted to make amends.

Williams may be an easy target since she is not an original Destiny's Child member. She officially joined the group in 2000, replacing LeToya Luckett and LaTavia Roberson, who left because they felt Beyonce and Rowland were the favorites.

Although some might have been unimpressed by Williams' performance, Beyonce was thrilled to share the stage with her former Destiny's Child groupmates.

"What a proud day for African American women!!!!" Beyonce wrote in a post for her Tumblr. "Kelly, Michelle, Alicia, JHud, You are all beautiful, talented and showed so much class! It was an honor to perform at the Super Bowl with you phenomenal ladies."
