After much unnecessary backlash over photos she’s posted of her two kids, Pink has announced that she is officially done sharing pics of her children on social media. “I like to share my family. It’s the proudest moment in my whole life. I’m prouder of my kids than anything I’ve ever done,” the “Just Give Me a Reason” songstress gushed to Ellen DeGeneres during a visit to her show on Monday, April 22.
The 39-year-old, who often shared behind-the-scenes glimpses into her life as the mother to her daughter, 7-year-old Willow, and son, 2-year-old Jameson, explained that the nasty public response ultimately made the decision for her. “I won’t share them anymore. I won’t do it,” Pink decided. “I’m not posting pictures of them anymore.”
The “Raise Your Glass” singer’s announcement comes not long after she began receiving hate online over photos she posted of Willow and Jameson, who she shares with husband Carey Hart. Most recently, Pink uploaded a pic of her two kiddos standing with a pelican while Jameson wasn’t wearing a diaper. After not noticing her son was naked from the stomach down, the performer’s comment section began flooding with rude and hurtful criticism.
“2-year-olds don’t like to wear wet swim diapers and apparently at some point he took it off,” Pink explained to the 61-year-old host. “I don’t think like that. We live on a farm. My kids are naked. It’s what happens. I’m naked sometimes.” Pink — who admitted that the backlash made her cry “so hard” — looked visibly upset while adding, “People went as far as saying someone should call child services.”

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.
Luckily, Pink doesn’t let the internet trolls get away without knowing how she really feels. “I have to [go after them] sometimes,” she confessed. “I feel like I can change their minds.” The blonde beauty explained that clapping back at the cyber bullies is the best way she can stand up for her and her family. “I’m all about injustice. I don’t like injustice,” she said. “I don’t like how brave people are anonymously and rude, just mean, mean, mean-spirited.”
The Thanks for Sharing actress even added that it’s not so much what people say that bothers her, it’s how they say it. “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,” Pink insisted to Ellen. “There’s a kind way to be online.” Keep being you, girl!
