Pink has vowed to stop sharing photos of her children on social media after being trolled for a post that showed her son without a nappy on.

The What About Us singer recently got into a bitter row on Instagram when she posted a photo of the sweet moment her children Willow, seven, and Jameson, two, met a pelican, only to be attacked by comments about her allowing her son to be photographed with no nappy or pants on.

She appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk about how much the backlash had upset her, and looked close to tears as she explained why she wouldn’t be sharing any more family moments.

Pink, real name Alecia Moore, told Ellen: “We live on a farm. My kids are naked. It’s what happens. I’m naked sometimes.

“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.

“I understand people saying, ‘You need to be more careful, you are in the public eye, you should have thought of that.’

“They’re right, but there’s a nice way to say that.”

The singer and mum of two deleted the original post on Instagram and reposted a blanked out version, hitting back at the commenters who had criticised her.

She wrote: “There’s something seriously wrong with a lot of you out there. Going off about my baby’s penis? About circumcision??? Are you for real?.

“As any normal mother at the beach, I didn’t even notice he took off his swim diaper.

“I deleted it because you’re all f***ing disgusting. And now I’m 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 people’s lives.

“There is something seriously wrong with a lot of you out there. Smfh.”
