Blue Ivy Carter has achieved so much in her young life, and has stayed incredibly humble too. 

Not only that, her grandmother, Tina Knowles, has revealed that she's helping others too. 

The proud grandparent jumped to the pre-teen's defense after a naysayer commented on her recent post, which paid tribute to Blue's latest Bet Award.

One of the comments wasn't so kind, and Tina was quick to set the record straight. In a now-deleted message, she said: "You feel the need to criticize and say she is privileged. But she is hard-working, kind and talented."

Further along in the message, she added: "She is doing quite fine as a good human being and does help others for your information." 

Tina's tribute to her granddaughter was posted earlier this week, and was accompanied by a picture of Blue from the Grammys back in February.
