would you use an apostrophe in the sentence "it's history" or would you not.

I am just going to hijack this thread and treat it as a questions that don't deserve their own thread thread. Anyway here is my question
What is the technical term to describe the logical fallacy where somebody says "let's see you do better" when you criticize a creative work. I have an annoying "friend" who does this occasionally and I want to come across as completely objective and righteous next time I point out his idiocy.
Appeal to accomplishment is a genetic fallacy wherein Person A challenges a thesis put forward by Person B because Person B has not accomplished similar feats or accomplished as many feats as Person C or Person A.
>How dare you criticize the prime minister? What do you know about running an entire country?
>I'll take your opinions on music seriously when you've released a record that went platinum.
>Get back to me when you've built up a multi-billion dollar empire of your own. Until then, shut up.
You're welcome, broseph. It's one I have to refer to frequently both on the internet and real life.
