Pink Says She Will No Longer Share Images of Her Children Online!
Singer Pink has made the decision to stop sharing images of her children on social media. The mum of two has spoken out saying she’s sick of the constant harassment she receives and hateful comments directed at her and husband Carey Hart.
Pink has been very open when it comes to her family and has often shared adorable pics of her two children – 7 year old daughter Willow and 2 year old son Jameson. Unfortunately though that has just given the mummy police a chance to comment about her and husband Carey’s parenting style.
Speaking to talk show host Ellen DeGeneres on Monday the fed up mum said, “I have to go after them sometimes. I feel like I can change their minds. I’m all about injustice. I don’t like injustice…I don’t like how brave people are anonymously and rude, just mean, mean, mean-spirited.”
The performer’s most recent altercation with online trolls was when she shared a photo of herself with her son and daughter on vacation with a pelican without noticing Jameson wasn’t wearing a nappy.

There’s something seriously wrong with a lot of you out there. Going off about my baby’s penis? About circumcision??? Are you for real? As any normal mother at the beach, I didn’t even notice he took off his swim diaper. I deleted it because you’re all fucking disgusting. And now I’m turning off my comments and shaking my head at the state of social media and keyboard warriors, And the negativity that you bring to other people’s lives. There is something seriously wrong with a lot of you out there. Smfh. Here’s a picture of the pelican we obviously caught and abused for hours before dangling baby penis in its face.
People were not happy that Jameson had no nappy on and had no reservations in telling her so. “2-year-olds don’t like to wear wet swim diapers and apparently at some point he took it off,” she said to DeGeneres. “I don’t think like that. We live on a farm. My kids are naked. It’s what happens. I’m naked sometimes.”
Seriously, some commenters got so triggered that they went as far as saying Pink and her husband weren’t fit parents.
The Grammy award singer said this devastated her. “People went as far as saying someone should call child services. I like to share my family. It’s my proudest moment in my whole life. I’m prouder of my kids than anything I’ve ever done,” she said. “I won’t share them anymore. I won’t do it. I’m not posting pictures of them anymore.”

She added, “I understand people saying you need to be more careful because you are in the public eye and you should have thought of that and they’re right, but there’s a nice way to say that. There’s a kind way to be online.”
Maybe it’s a good thing to keep the kids out of the limelight. As Pink said herself, daughter Willow is at a good age to retreat from the public eye. “Willow is 7 now. It’s probably time to pull her back from the world and let her just live her best life,” she said.
