Pink to stop posting about her kids on social media after being 'mom-shamed' by users
American singer Pink has had enough with social media "mom-shaming", so much so that she has now decided to stop sharing her intimate family moments online. The 39-year-old singer told audiences on Monday's The Ellen DeGeneres Show that she would no longer be posting photographs of her daughter Willow Sage and son Jameson Moon on Instagram because she had a very bad experience recently.
It was a decision she came to after critics slammed her last month for sharing a photograph of her children interacting with a pelican, one that was snapped after Jameson had taken off his wet swim diaper. Though Pink had scribbled out her boy's nude bottom half on the picture, trolls still went after her - putting her on the defensive. "People went as far as saying someone should call child services because he didn't have a diaper on and how dare I … some of the nastiest things," Pink recalled on the show.
The Just Give Me A Reason singer said she cried so hard after that because she likes to share her family and it's one of her proudest moments. She went on to add that she has been prouder of her kids than anything she has done in her whole life."I just won't share them anymore," she said. "I won't do it. I'm not posting pictures of them anymore."
Pink admitted to DeGeneres that the decision to stop sharing photographs of her children on social media was coming at "a good time", especially for Willow."She's seven now," Pink said. "It's probably time to pull her back from the world and let her live her best life."
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.
