Defending themselves! When it comes to social media trolls and the parenting police, Pink and Carey Hart don’t mind fighting back.
The Grammy winner summed this up perfectly on Instagram in January 2019.
“Throw up Thursday. I am the same girl I’ve always been,” the “What About Us” singer captioned a throwback shot with short pink hair. “I have always admitted when I am wrong. I have apologized many times. I’m a big believer in apologies, when you’re wrong. I was raised by a Vietnam Veteran who taught me to stand up for what I believe to be right. Even if that means standing alone.”
She added: “I do not now, nor have I ever apologized for some of my very polarizing opinions. If you are surprised by this, or offended, you have every right to unfollow me, as you really don’t know who I am. I am mostly peace and love, with a little bit of go f–k yourself. So when you keyboard warriors (anonymous tough guys) threaten me? that middle finger is pointed at you. Again: the unfollow button is (I think) top right of your screen. It lets you unfollow people you find make you uncomfortable. It’s great. It really works.”
The musician has also specifically gone to bat for her parenting skills — and her husband’s!
She and the former pro motocross racer tied the knot in 2006 and started growing their family five years later. They now share Willow and Jameson, whom they welcomed in 2011 and 2016, respectively.
Take a look at each and every epic clapback Pink and Inked author have used to slam social media users over the years.
“You sound well informed on the performance of my husband as a father. Answer me this: how often have you spent time with my husband? How often have you watched him parent?” the “Just Give Me a Reason” singer asked a critical Instagram user bashing Hart’s parenting skills in December 2018. “Do you know my children? Are you aware of their development? Even better: what are your credentials in Parenting expertise?”
She added: “You sound like a person that could learn something by looking at all of this. God bless your perfect path. I have no interest in that myself. However, do check in from time to time to let us know what other teachings you may have for us, oh perfect f—king stranger.”

“Haven’t poked the parenting police bear in a few days,” Hart wrote beneath a video of his then-7-year-old daughter Willow holding a gun in January 2019. “Willz and I shooting the 22 rifle. She is getting pretty good. Can hit a 12 inch pie plate from 30 yards. Started her shooting at 3yrs old. For the record non [sic] of us hunt, just enjoy shooting for sport. I’m raising the kids with knowledge of fire arms, how to handle them, shoot them, store them, and avoid them in uneducated hands. #knowledgeispower.”
When one Instagram user said the little one might lose control and shoot her father in the face, the athlete responded, “You’re completely ignorant.”

Egging Them On
Without even waiting for a negative response, Hart anticipated backlash on a photo of his family on a dirt bike without helmets in January 2019, captioning the pic, “Stuffed the whole family on my bike, with out [sic] helmets, and we were hitting all the jumps. What you think parent police?”

“At least twice a week on your, we shut the door to the outside world and have family dinner,” Pink posted on Instagram in March 2019. When a sarcastic social media user wrote, “Except it’s posted on IG,” she clapped back hard.
“Yes I like to promote healthy stuff,” the Pennsylvania native wrote. “I also like to remind people to stop being TOTAL DOUCHE BAGS TOO. Consider this your reminder, f–ko.”
