When Pink had the gall to look spectacular with what could be a couple more pounds than usual on her frame, body-shamers around the globe decided that the singer absolutely had to know that they did not approve.
Pink responded on Twitter, and managed to not only avoid attacking her critics, but put a positive spin on the whole thing.
So what? She’s still a rock star
After red (okay, striped) carpet photos of Pink from the John Wayne Cancer Institute Auxiliary 30th Annual Odyssey Ball on April 11 appeared online, trolling commenters managed to catch the singer’s attention with comments about her weight.
Here’s her perfectly on-target response:
Below is the message she posted on Twitter, plus a couple more — including a shot with her husband (“it’s just more to love baby”), and another with her daughter (“mama-why r u so squishy?”).
Our take: Comments about someone else’s weight — whether high or low or in the middle — really ought only be delivered by immediate family and/or that person’s health and wellness team.
