It’s almost expected for modern parents to be posting pictures of their kids on their social media platforms these days. Although, this belief doesn’t necessarily apply to celebrities, which can be subjected to a lot of trolling and negative speech from people on social media.
This is part of why Pink, known as P!NK, has announced that she will stop posting pictures of her kids on any digital media platform. The singer, Alecia Beth Moore, has been the victim of various negative incidents that have forced her to put her foot down on the issue.
The Rationale Behind Pink’s Decision
Pink is a mother to two beautiful children, her daughter Willow and son Jameson. Whenever she isn’t busy building her singing career, she’s a mother and guardian to both of her children. And Pink had always been so open about her journeys as a parent.
The singer was very keen on posting photos and videos that documented her most prominent moments as a mother, much to the delight of her fans. In fact, there is this one notorious photo of Pink wherein she was using a breast pump while backstage at one of her shows. In the post, the singer used the #PumpUpTheJams hashtag within the photo’s caption.
A Dark Turn
While this innocent display of her journey as a mother has been seen as endearing to many of her fans, the responses that the singer has received have taken a toll on her and her family. Many perks come with being a celebrity blessed with fame and fortune.
Unfortunately, there are many downsides to living such a public life as well. Being in the public eye means that you’re subjected to a lot of scrutiny and judgment from people you don’t even know.
In one particular Instagram post, Pink shared a photo of her having dinner with her family on a modest roundtable with the four of them draped in smiles. She wrote:
“At least twice a week on tour, we shut the door to the outside world and have family dinner,”
While the post may have had good intentions, many commenters felt that it was unnecessary. Some even went as far as to say that she was taking away from the sanctity of the moment by posting about it.
There was also another photo that Pink shared of her family enjoying some fun and leisurely time at the beach. In the photo, Pink’s toddler son is pictured without a diaper. This triggered a storm of negative comments that were borderline despicable and inappropriate. She wrote in her post:
“There’s something seriously wrong with a lot of you out there,”
Toning It Down
With every subsequent post, Pink would have to deal with a slew of negativity coming from strangers on the internet. As one might expect, this has dramatically affected her mental health and has caused the singer to stop posting about her family on her social media.
For her own safety and for the safety of her kids, Pink is looking to lead a relatively more private life away from the public eye.
