Pink Opens Up About The Nastiness Of Online Trolls And Why She's Decided To No Longer Post Photos Of Her Kids

Pink, the famous singer and songwriter, loves social media just like the rest of us do. But being a celebrity online comes with an unfortunate caveat many of us don't often acknowledge:

Constant trolling from strangers who, for whatever reason, find joy in attacking celebrities.


Appearing on The Ellen Show, Pink told host Ellen DeGeneres about the backlash she received for posting a photo of her toddler without his diaper on.

P!nk Won't Post About Her Kids on Social Media Anymore youtu.be

After being relentlessly attacked by "keyboard warriors" for the innocent photo, Pink decided to stop putting pictures of her children on social media all together. She told Ellen:

"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, I'm not posting pictures of them anymore."

Pink points out that there's a very fine line between trying to offer a constructive opinion and simply lashing out to cause harm:

"And 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. There's a kind way to be online."


Pink's fans online understood her decision and wished people could be kinder.



If you wouldn't say something to a celebrity in real life, you shouldn't say it on social media.


Many people agreed that children were best left off social media altogether.



Internet trolls have long been the enemies of people who find love and enjoyment online.


Ellen, for her part, backed up Pink 100%!

If you were a fan of seeing Pink's kids online, then you're sadly out of luck.

Don't worry, though! Pink isn't going anywhere and, hopefully, the internet will become an even better, more positive place through her words and actions.
