Pink is an amazing mom with two adorable children — but thanks to social media trolls, she won’t be posting any more photos of them online.

Pink explained her decision during her appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. She explained that she’s received a lot of rude comments in response to photos of her kids.

In early April, she shared a photo on Instagram of herself, her 2-year-old son Jameson, and her daughter Willow, 7. A pelican had flown into their room, and Pink wanted to document and share the amazing incident. In the photo, Jameson wasn’t wearing a diaper.

“I have a 2-year-old; 2-year-olds don’t like to wear wet swim diapers, and apparently, at some point, he took it off,” Pink explained on the show.

“We live on a farm. My kids are naked. It’s what happens. I’m naked sometimes!”

Pink added that people said some of the “nastiest” things, including that someone should call child services on her for not putting her child in a diaper (???).

At the time, Pink removed the photo and replaced it with a censored version accompanied by a sassy clapback in the caption. But behind the scenes, the critical response took a toll on her.

“I cried so hard after that, because I like to share my family,” she said. “It’s my proudest moment in my whole life. 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.”
