“F*ck the parenting police.” Pink is trolling people who comment on her parenting skills.

Pink is fighting back.

Three months ago, the singer said she wasn’t going to post any more photos of her kids on social media, because of “nasty” attacks from trolls. Now, she’s posting photos of her kids and attacking the trolls.

As she says, #f*cktheparentingpolice.

Wonder Women: Pink. Post continues after video. 

Pink’s latest Instagram post of her kids, posted on Sunday, shows eight-year-old Willow and two-year-old Jameson running through the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin. Some of the comments are vicious.

“She should instill a little respect and decency,” one man posted. “That’s her job.”

“This is a memorial, not a playground!” another man added.

Pink quickly hit back: “For all of the comments: these two children are in actuality Jewish, as am I and the entirety of my mother’s family. The very person who constructed this believed in children being children, and to me this is a celebration of life after death. Please keep your hatred and judgment to yourselves.”

That’s telling them.

It was very different back in April this year. Pink admitted on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that she’d been reduced to tears by hateful comments she’d received about a photo that unintentionally showed Jameson’s penis. The photo was of Jameson and Willow looking at a pelican, and Pink later explained that Jameson must have taken off his wet swim nappy without her realising it, before she took the photo. As soon as it was posted, fans began discussing Jameson’s penis, including whether it was circumcised or not. Pink quickly censored the photo with a black scribble.

“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,” Pink told DeGeneres. “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.”

Fortunately for her fans, it seems that Pink had a change of heart earlier this month. On July 4, she posted a photo of herself sitting on a bike out the front of Cologne Cathedral in Germany, with Jameson on a seat at the front of the bike. Yes, Jameson was wearing a helmet (and pants). There were virtually no critical comments.

It was a different story a few days later when Pink posted a photo of Jameson looking at rabbits in Hamburg Zoo. Some of her fans were very unhappy that she was taking her children to see animals in captivity.

“Take them to see them in their natural environment, as paying for the zoo ticket only reinforces the captivity trade,” one told her.

“Zoos are the ultimate example of human depravity and selfishness,” another declared. “The fur-people are our sisters, they are our mothers, our aunts, born to live as equals, not slaves.”

It was all too much for Pink, and she soon let out her frustrations in an absolutely hilarious post, featuring a gorgeous photo of Willow.

“Here’s a picture of my child running through water,” she wrote. “It wasn’t even filtered. What a waste of water. And no helmet? I hope she had sunscreen. If she slips and falls she may be traumatised for life. And her mother wasn’t even there. I was… gasp… working!!!! In another country! #instagramisfun# fucktheparentingpolice #ifyoufeellikeunfollowingpleasegoddoitquickly #opinionsarelikeassholes# somanyassholes”

That was followed by another photo taken at the zoo.

“I would also like to point out that there are GUINEA PIGS in captivity here but they at least go to church like good Christian guinea pigs,” Pink posted. “Not that all Christians are good. I didn’t mean to offend the non good Christians.”

Pink sums up long term relationships in a single sentence, and it’s the truest thing we’ve ever heard.  Post continues after audio. 

Soon, her fans were getting in on the joke.

“Are the guinea pigs wearing helmets and sunscreen?” one asked.

“No-bullsh*t motherhood at its finest,” wrote another. “You are @nobullsh*tmotherhood’s patron saint of no bullsh*t and zero f*cks and we love you, Queen.”

“So glad you’re posting the kids again,” added another. “We love all of you guys.”

Yep. Looks like Pink’s kids are back on social media and this time, nobody is going to make her cry.
