Mom-shaming is never cool, but this one is a bit complicated. Singer Pink was mom-shamed over her kids running at a Holocaust Memorial and responded over social media. While a number of the “So What” singer’s followers took issue with her children’s behavior, Pink’s response was thoughtful and offered an interesting perspective.
The Grammy winner had some choice words for mom-shamers who took issue with her parenting after Pink posted a photo of her two children running through the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin. Pink and her husband Cary Hart share two children together, daughter Willow Sage, 8, and son Jameson Moon, 2 and a half. The couple and their two children were exploring the 8600-square-foot Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe when the singer shared of a photo of her two kids running down a hall. And that’s when the comments started.

Berlin, I love you. #holocaustmemorial #panamarestaurant #cocktailclasses #history #herstory #worldtour and for all of the comments; these two children are in actuality Jewish, as am I and the entirety of my mothers family. The very person who constructed this believed in children being children, and to me this is a celebration of life after death. Please keep your hatred and judgment to yourselves.
The singer responded to comments from users who judged her parenting, or lack thereof. One user commented on the Instagram post, “This is not definitely a hide and seek place, dear Pink. The “Raise Your Glass” singer, having none of it, offered an interesting response that we hadn’t even considered. “Berlin, I love you,” Pink wrote her caption. “And for all of the comments; these two children are in actuality Jewish, as am I and the entirety of my mothers family. The very person who constructed this believed in children being children, and to me this is a celebration of life after death. Please keep your hatred and judgment to yourselves.”
Pink is currently on her “Beautiful Trauma” World Tour with her family in tow. And this isn’t the first time the singer has responded to, what she has dubbed as, “parenting police” online. The singer has previously spoken out about people’s judgment on the internet. In an April interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the singer said, “I’m prouder of my kids than anything I’ve ever done and I just won’t share them anymore,” she said. “There’s a kind way to be online. I’m open to kindness. … There’s a way to do things. And that mean stuff, that ain’t it.” Based on her recent response, Pink is a mother who can take on the mom-shamers, without a doubt.
