P!nk says she won’t be posting images of her children on social media anymore because of all the negativity she receives.
On an appearance on Ellen, P!nk opened up about how it’s been so hard for her to share photos of her daughter Willow, 7, and her son, James, 2.
“So many people on social media go in on me all the time,” P!nk revealed after sharing a video of her daughter saying the word “dammit.” “And, this one, some people were like, ‘Nice language. I’m sure that came from you.’ And, ‘What kind of mother are you?’”
“I feel like I can change their minds. I’m all about injustice. I don’t like injustice,” she added. “I don’t like how brave people are anonymously and rude, just mean. Mean, mean-spirited!”
Last month, P!nk took to Instagram to slam critics who had words for her showing a photo of her son without his diaper, even though she blocked out the photo.
“People went as far as saying, ‘Someone should call child services,’ because he didn’t have a diaper on, and ‘How dare I?’ — just some of the nastiest things,” she said. “I cried so hard after that because I like to share my family. … I’m prouder of my kids than anything I’ve ever done and I just won’t share them anymore. I won’t do it.”
P!nk also encouraged people to be a little nicer online, writing:
“I understand people saying, ‘You need to be more careful, you are in the public eye, 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,” she said.
