Pink just won her long battle against internet trolls
If there’s anyone who deserves to just be left the eff alone online, it’s Pink, who is both an awesome artist and an awesome mom, yet for some reason, attracts an army of truly vicious internet trolls who obsessively criticize her every move including her parenting choices. It’s nuts, and they all need lives, for real.
However, you know how sometimes the simplest solution to the problem has been in front of you all along, and then you finally see it, smack yourself on the forehead, and go, “Why didn’t I think of this like, a thousand years ago?” That’s probably what Pink did this week, when she finally just disabled commenting on her Instagram account.
In a post featuring her hottie husband Carey Hart lounging in a pool looking like he hasn’t a care in the world (because he probably does not anymore, now that this annoyance has been dealt with), Pink wrote, “Just a friendly reminder to those of you that need it : there will be no more comments on this page! Hahahaha! looks like you’re gonna have to go tell it on the mountain!!!!! Good luck to ya!”
She peppered the whole hilarious sentiment with middle finger emojis, because, frankly, that’s all her asshole trolls deserve to get from her. And to the real fans, who have liked her post nearly half a million times and counting, she added, “And to everyone else; I love you forever.”
This is a genius strategy. Like, bye, trolls. Go find another account to spew weirdly obsessive hate that no one wants to see, because none of us want it on posts from Pink, who is actually one of the most badass women on the planet and deserves none of the grief and abuse piled on her daily.
We’re also way more here for this strategy than some of her past ones. During an appearance on Ellen, a tearful Pink revealed she wasn’t going to post pictures of her kids online anymore because of all the hate it attracted for her. That sucked, because she’s adorably proud of her family and we love seeing her post about them. But it also wasn’t surprising, because it happened after commenters went absolutely batshit crazy criticizing her over her son’s penis. Yes, you read that correctly. The internet attacked this mom over her toddler’s genitalia and that would exceed anyone’s limit for life, the internet, and everything.
So Pink, eff the haters. We’re absolutely thrilled you found a solution that will keep them out of your life, but keep you (and hopefully, your adorable babies) in ours. Everyone wins, except the trolls, just as it should be.
