- During a segment on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, singer Pink said she won't be posting photos of her kids online anymore.
- The move comes after receiving hundreds of "mean" comments from online haters.
- "I'm prouder of my kids than anything I've ever done and I just won't share them anymore," she said. "I won't do it."
Pink is seeing red.
The 39-year-old singer appeared on Monday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, revealing just how fed up she is with online commenters coming after her because they disagree with her parenting style.
So many people on social media go in on me all the time, she said, after Ellen showed a clip of son Jameson, 2, saying the word dammit. And, this one, some people were like, Nice language. Im sure that came from you. And, What kind of mother do you think you are?
It's not the first time a social media post featuring Pink's son (she also has a daughter, Willow, who is 7 years old) inspired trolls to come out of their caves. Earlier this month, Pink posted an Instagram image of Jameson-sans diaper-meeting a new pelican friend . The image raised eyebrows due to Jameson's nudity, and following the backlash, Pink took down the photo, reposting an edited version in which her son's genitals had been scribbled out.
View this post on Instagram Theres something seriously wrong with a lot of you out there. Going off about my babys penis? About circumcision??? Are you for real? As any normal mother at the beach, I didnt even notice he took off his swim diaper. I deleted it because youre all fucking disgusting. And now Im 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 peoples lives. There is something seriously wrong with a lot of you out there. Smfh. Heres a picture of the pelican we obviously caught and abused for hours before dangling baby penis in its face.

"We live on a farm. My kids are naked. It's what happens. I'm naked sometimes, Pink told Ellen. "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. 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."
Of course, not everyone who is extremely online is also extremely rude, and Pink made sure to say as much, adding that she's even learned a thing or two from polite, helpful commenters who've pointed out errors or insensitivities. The key word here being polite.
"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. Theres a kind way to be online," she said.
We couldn't have said it better ourselves, Pink.
