Melanie Griffith is using sarcasm and wit to shut down her social media haters.

The 58-year-old actress posted a striking selfie on Instagram sans filters and other photo enhancing modifications.

"Here ya go. Unfiltered. I'm 58. And I'm in Hawaii Five O playing Scott Caan's Mom. Go ahead… Say some more mean things. Merry Christmas," Melanie Griffith said on the caption.

The caption’s curt tone is not unfounded, however – Melanie Griffith received a lot of flak from critics about a previous photo she posted of her legs while relaxing in a beach in Hawaii.

Among the numerous negative comments, one Instagram user said that they “look like men’s legs.”

Hawaii with my feet up?

The Another Day in Paradise actress is not letting online trolls bring her down. Just one week before the Instagram debacle, Melanie Griffith officially split up with actor Antonio Banderas after 18 years of marriage.

The newly-divorced couple, who fell in love on the set of the romantic comedy film Two Much, formally announced their divorce in June of 2014. They share one daughter together, Stella del Carmen Banderas.

However, both Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith claim that neither of them are bitter towards each other and that they still love each other despite the fact that their marriage did not work out.

Earlier this year, Banderas said this of his relationship with his ex-wife: "We'll always be friends, I hope. We speak to each other every few days and I'm very happy that we're not like many couples, where people can become bitter and angry after their marriages end. I don't see any reason for that."

On December 9, Melanie Griffith shared an uplifting quote about divorce on Instagram, which she got from the book, Fly Away Home.

Amen! Love my kids, love my ex's. Always and forever. #nobody's business
