Victoria Beckham is not just Posh Spice. If you are active on social media or are able to read/listen to/understand news, you might know that the 42-year-old mother of four has added many accomplishments to her belt following her career with the Spice Girls.

UNAIDS International Goodwill Ambassadorship; a successful, award-winning global fashion label; humanitarian work across charities like Comic Relief, Children In Need, Red Cross and UNICEF. And she's not stopping anytime soon.

However, because the world isn't that fair and beautiful, some people called Victoria undeserving of the Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire she is reportedly set to receive from Queen Elizabeth II next year. Worse, they tweeted their outrage with insults.

People are just rude.

By the way, David Beckham receiving his OBE in 2003 for his contribution to football was met with little or no criticism, but maybe because social media wasn't born yet. Other netizens were quick to point out Victoria's many achievements, defending her award.

Note the delicious sarcasm in that last one.
