Pink slams troll parent-shaming her husband: 'These are bold statements from a social media spectator'
P!nk is not here for negative comments about the way she and Carey Hart parent their kids.
The badass songstress, 39, smacked down a troll claiming Hart had a “complete lack of regard” for the “proper care” of their children. It started earlier this week when Hart, a retired motocross racer, shared a photo of himself and their nearly 2-year-old son, Jameson, on a dirt bike, leading to criticism. Clearly thumbing her nose at the drama, Pink posted a photo Wednesday of the toddler thoroughly enjoying some chocolate, with the caption, “Chocolate is good for babies right? Help me Instagram, we can’t possibly parent without you.”
One person with the handle @sporty_mom5 replied, “Sarcasm I love as I am too but with your husband being in the spotlight so often with his complete lack of regard for proper care or concern at times with your kids, this comment isn’t funny, albeit Jameson is adorable. I love your music, your kids are beautiful but your husband, I’m sorry, lacks the responsibility your kids need in his care.”

P!nk didn’t hold back with her reply. “You sound well informed on the performance of my husband as a father,” she wrote. “Answer me this: how often have you spent time with my husband? How often have you watched him parent? Do you know my children? Are you aware of their development? Even better: what are your credentials in Parenting expertise? Are you a perfect parent? S***, are you even a parent? A psychologist? A teacher? These are bold statements from a social media spectator.”
She continued, “I won’t even unfollow you. It’s not worth the trouble. 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***ing stranger.”
The Grammy winner’s scorched-earth reply won applause from her 5.2 million followers. “Brilliant response,” wrote a commenter named @joy.annette. Several people remarked, “BOOM!” @Bon3571 wrote, “You both can be my parents any day.”
It all stemmed from this photo:
Jamo has his race face on😂😂😂. Don’t worry parent police, I’m a professional. #BeADadNotAFad @FoxMoto @Dualigans @giantbicyclesusa @RideDunlop @Guts_Racing_Inc @WorksConnection @Fmf73 @motionpro @Twin_air @GalferUsa @ODIgrips @mactools38 @acerbisusa @Bel_RayCompany @GoodRide @HinsonRacing

This type of drama is old news for P!nk and Hart. Her amazing clapbacks are old news too. Way back in 2013, when their daughter, Willow, was 2, pretty much the same exact thing happened — though Willow was sans helmet — when Hart took her on his bike for the first time.
Been waiting for this day for a very long time. Willz went for her 1st ride on my motorcycle around the pits today. She was pumped the whole time. When we stopped, she gave me a big hug and said it was fun, thank you Papa. That's my girl.

If any of u have more experience on a bike than my husband, then I will listen to your opinions on how he should take my daughter for a ride

“@MFemur: @Pink Honestly.. I wouldn't like the idea of a child so young being on a bike.” Then I don't recommend it for your child
