Jennifer Lopez received an outpouring of support on social media for using gender-neutral pronouns to congratulate a young relative's accomplishment.

Lopez shared the photo of Brendan, the child of her older sister Leslie, attending the Global Young Leaders Conference in Washington, D.C.

In the caption of the photo, she referred to Brendan as the singular "they."

"This means the world to me," wrote one appreciative commenter. "Thank you for shining your light on Brendan and sharing their accomplishments and beauty with the world!"

"THANK YOU" wrote another commenter. "This is how to be a supportive ally."
