Pink says she may stop posting photos of her kids on social media, saying she’s grown ‘tired’ of relentless criticism and mom-shaming.
The 39-year-old has two kids with her husband Carey Hart — seven-year-old Willow and two-year-old Jameson — and regularly shares pictures of them on Instagram.
But she told Carson Daly in a new Today show interview that while she doesn’t regret anything she’s shared in the past, she may take a break from posting about her family because people are getting so much ‘nastier’ online.
Pink said she has a love/hate relationship with social media, and won’t hesitate to bite back when she’s poked.
[It’s] a place where love certainly exists, and where so many good things have happened
After the latest criticisms, I’m so tired of it. People are just getting nastier and nastier. I think I’ll probably take a break. I think I’ll stop sharing my children as much as I do. It’s getting a little nastier. I think people have forgotten their manners
Pink has felt compelled to bite back and quite a few critics lately.
In late March, she shared a photo of herself with her two children. In the snap, Jameson has taken off his swim diaper and was nvked from the waist down.
Commenters latched on to this and left hateful comments, prompting Pink to delete the image and post a new one, in which her son’s body scribbled out — and a new, defensive caption was added.
‘There’s something seriously wrong with a lot of you out there. Going off about my baby’s p**is? About circumcision??? Are you for real?’ she wrote. ‘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 f***ing 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 p**is in its face,’ she wrote.
It was the second time in a month she hit back at critics of her parenting.
A few weeks earlier, she’d posted a snapshot of a family dinner, with her, Carey, and their kids sitting around a table.
‘At least twice a week on tour, we shut the door to the outside world and have family dinner,’ she wrote.
While the comments were mostly positive, one person wrote: ‘Except it’s posted on ig’ which got a response from Pink herself.
