Pink yells at trolls who comment about a photo of her baby without a diaper at the beach

In our fourth podcast, we talked about celebrity couples whom we don’t want to break up. Kaiser/Chandra mentioned Pink and Carey Hart because those two have weathered a couple of storms and she said she would be disappointed if they broke up. (That’s at 26 minutes in. By the way, we did not put a podcast out today as I am having minor medical issues. More on that here.) The more we hear from Pink and Carey on social media, the more they seem suited for each other. Both Pink and Carey have called out trolls on their social media several times. I covered it when Carey brought their sick baby out to breakfast and we skipped the story when he was teaching his daughter Willow, 7, to shoot firearms. In this most recent story, Pink deleted a photo she posted featuring baby Jameson, two, and their daughter Willow interacting with a pelican at the beach. She posted it without thinking about the fact that Jameson didn’t have a diaper on. Then people started commenting about it and Pink got understandably mad and deleted it. She scribbled over Jameson’s naked bits and posted it wit a warning to trolls. Here’s her post and if you can’t read the caption, US has it.

I’m of two minds about this. When my son was little like this I was careful not to post naked photos of him. That’s just the world we live in, sadly. I always double check my photos before they’re posted. That’s in no way to blame Pink for this, just to say she should be conscious of it. People are awful. On the other hand, she doesn’t notice whether her toddler is wearing a diaper because it’s no big deal. Who cares really?

Also, given how many times Pink and Carey have clashed with commenters, I really think they should just turn off all comments on Instagram. It’s awful, you’re cutting off a majority of well-wishers and nice people due to the 1% who are the worst. It’s a decision so many celebrities and sites have had to make recently.

    I like her a lot and her family is so adorable.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      ditto. and I’m with the writers of this site – I hope they NEVER break up. I love that they worked through their problems instead of just giving up and they seem to really love each other. (to be clear, sometimes breaking up IS the best thing to do, but I have a lot of respect for couples who really try before splitting.)

      and I LOVE her daughter’s leggings with the stars on them. really cute, I want a pair!

  2. Mel M says:

    Honestly I’m not offended. I have twin three year olds who take five hours to put their underwear and pants back on after going potty so they are always pant less around here until I chase them down. Naked toddlers are normal in my house. On the other hand though I’m also careful about what I post and don’t post any naked or half naked pics and I have a private IG account with only people I know following me. If I had a public account with millions of followers I can’t see myself accidentally posting a pic like that.

  3. Astrid says:

    I”m of 2 minds…why even post family pictures to the general public?

    • lucy2 says:

      I agree. If I were famous, I wouldn’t do that, I would want the kids to have as much privacy as possible until they’re old enough to choose for themselves.
      And if I did post photos, I’d certainly turn the comments off.

      I like Pink a lot, but it seems like this is a recurring thing with them, posting “controversial” stuff and then yelling about it on social media.

      • Anitas says:

        I like her as an artist but she seems insufferable as a person.

        Pink: hello social media followers here are photos of my kids please pay attention
        Followers: (paying attention)
        Pink: omg what’s wrong with you smh now pay attention to me some more

      • velourazure says:

        I agree. I think a lot of celebs really enjoy the validation of all the fawning positive comments (who wouldn’t I guess) but then freak out over anything negative. Just turn comments off and be done with it. You’re never going to be able to control the opinions of the general public if you allow them to comment on your life.

    • BchyYogi says:

      When kiddo was small,I was advised to ONLY send updates to family/friends via email. Now that he’s a teen HE guides his own social media w an eye towards sponsorship as he’s in an elite sport, high level comps etc. I notice his social media is healthy, IMO, not a pseudo thug forum like some teens, and as a dedicated athlete, I’d DOUBT he has the time for a fake site or whatever. WE don’t have any “in the room on social media” family culture. Tho I understand Pink’s “family pride”, I could kind of care less. I have my OWN friends, family etc, that I actually CARE @; not EVERYONE feels the way WE feel @ our own offspring, & why subject our most cherished babies to traffickers/abusers, trolls etc? As a 50yo I’m WAY more aware & don’t feel this media culture is safe or normal!

  4. Loretta says:

    Lovely family.

  5. Léna says:

    It’s not offensive to see a child butt naked at the beach but unfortunately sick minded peoole/pedophiles rejoice.

    • Amy Tennant says:

      That’s my thinking too. I know it is innocent, and it doesn’t offend me, but I would worry for that reason. I even posted a picture of my young daughter in a t-shirt and diaper to my facebook, and got a lot of creepy messages in response from a guy who was into the whole adult baby fetish (serves me right for approving a friend request from someone I didn’t know well). It was an eye-opener.

    • Sam the Pink says:

      This. I get that people say “well, it’s not my problem that people are sick.” And it’s not. But it’s also true that some people will grab those pics and start passing them around. And my fear will always be that somebody might cross over from internet to real life. There have been documented cases of people becoming too attached to people they see online and actually breaking through the “internet barrier” and showing up in real life.

      My children are not part of my social media, and I believe that is the healthiest way, and that is in part motivated by the desire to keep them safe, because you genuinely never know who is out there, or where those pictures are going. I’d rather shield them entirely from it.

      • BchyYogi says:

        Here’s a TRUE horror story from within 5 miles of my small town. The FBI contacted a family because the mother’s facebook photos were literally in a human sex traffickers catalog. The child was -already sold- and by the Grace of God/chance whatever, she evaded abduction, but was in current danger. She was 10yo and sold for $600 overseas. The family remains safe but it SHOULD make us all see the reality of posting vulnerable kids, their schedules etc. Pink may be LESS vulnerable because she’s visible & wealthy, but STILL.

    • Steph says:

      I love a cute baby butt, but I would NEVER put pics of my naked child online. Don’t do this people! There are some sick sick people out there.

  6. Aims says:

    When my kids were tiny , they would run naked outside in pur backyard. Totally protected and private. When outside they weren’t, because I don’t know who or what is out there. It was about their protection.

  7. Dani says:

    I didn’t see the original so I don’t get the circumcision thing (is he/is he not) but either way…it’s no ones business. Why are you inspecting a baby penis? My 2 year old is constantly ripping off her diaper. I leave her with pants on and I come back in to the room she’s naked. Kids are kids. Unfortunately celebrities don’t have the same right as normal humans.

  8. Lisa says:

    You have to be careful about what you post on a public forum especially as a celebrity.

  9. Anne says:

    Re: the circumcision deal, errrrrybody has a loud-ass opinion on that. Without feeling the need to say here what choice my husband and I made for our son, we have been the recipients of surprisingly aggressive commentary from friends and family. I can only imagine the vitriol (whether the kid is cut or uncut) from randos on the internet. 🙄

    Regardless, we can probably all agree that it’s best not to post pics of your child’s nethers online.

    • MC2 says:

      THIS! Oh my god the questions & comments about this!
      The commenters on this topic are way over the top. And screw the parents who choose to grab onto the vitriol & push the decision THEY MADE FOR THEIR KID cuz they can’t deal with being shamed by others so they shame others in turn. Ugh to the whole thing. Focus on your own penises & leave others alone ffs.

  10. me says:

    This is what I hate about social media. Those kids have no privacy. Maybe they don’t want pics of them like that on the internet forever. Do these parents not think about how their kids might react to this one day?

  11. Janey says:

    I personally wouldn’t post a pic of my son, and I’m not famous so about five people would see it but I still wouldn’t do it. I kind of think its about how he would feel about it too, when he’s older. Its one thing for my mother to get out my literal baby photos of me naked in the bath and another to post me naked in the bath on the internet where it will live forever. I think she made a mistake here but sadly that is the world we find ourselves in.

  12. aang says:

    As long as she picks up his poop if he has an accident I don’t care.

  13. Marianne says:

    I dont think theres a problem that her son was diaperless in the first place. I think the bigger issue is posting the picture to social media. Regardless of how innocent the situation may have been, there are pedophiles out there in the world. Do you really want them to have access to your naked child?

  14. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Even as a nobody, when I was on Facebook, I hardly ever posted kid pics. There were three pics that come immediately to mind which drew some laughable controversy in our area. Of course I watched as posters who knew me body-slam em and shamed into submission lol. My youngest loved very small spaces, and it’s crazy how many pics I have of him in situations where I chose to grab the cam instead of rushing to get him out. I swear he was never in any danger because although I tout not being a helicopter, I pretty much was under five years old lol.

    I once found him completely in the guinea pig cage, and he closed the door so his friend wouldn’t escape. I said something about running an errand and wanted him ‘looked after.’ I once found him in the dryer. He heard the buzzer, ran to open the door (with lighted interior) and climbed in with the warm laundry. I captioned that he was really wet and needed a quick dry. I one found him in a plastic, see-through shipping container with all shipping labels still attached. He had tried to close the lid, but that was too hard so I quicky snapped a pic explaining I was sending him to Grandpa. It’s amazing there are so many souls around who don’t pick up on humor; they hashed up pretty quick though. I never did take those pics down either dammit! They were hysterical. Oh I forgot about a large suitcase pic where I said we couldn’t afford an extra ticket.

    • Amy Tennant says:

      I have a cute picture of my daughter inside the dryer. Her grandma gently scolded me about it, over and over and over, lol. That was just from her seeing the picture, and that was my mama who loved me. I can only imagine what I would have gotten if I had posted it!

      • Mabs A'Mabbin says:

        They ARE cute pics! And they’re hysterical because you, me and most parents wouldn’t, in a gazillion years, do anything to harm them in any way whatsoever. The people getting angry are the actual scary ones. Like the ones beefing over Pink’s kiddos weenus. With the kind of politics ‘running’ this country, and the crazies who approve, I find it so increadibly bizarre people are so tightly wound and explode on social media, but fail to see bigger pictures and use common sense. But sure, make time in your day to chastise a parent over naked toddlers.

  15. Veronica S. says:

    Fundamentally, nudity – even adult – is really not that big of a deal. It’s the fact that we inherently sexualize it to some extent (either through objectification or presuming others will do so) that’s the issue. I find this a non-issue, though I understand why people would not want to do the same with their own children.

    • otaku fairy says:

      Truth. This is one of the reasons why I don’t clutch my pearls about how people allow their tweens or teens to dress at all. That said, her son didn’t get to opt out of that pic being posted online. For some kids, just a pic like that being in a family photo album would be embarrassing.

  16. Trillian says:

    I am German and my daughter (3) grows up running around naked in our city backyard, the swimming pool and seeing people in all states of undress at local pools or parks. I certainly am not bothered about any nudity, let alone a toddler’s. But when I take pics of her that I post online, I do so with a friends only setting, make sure her face is not full on visible and a piece of cloth (or a huge smiley face) over private naked bits. It’s only respectful.

  17. SM says:

    I agree with you. I did not post photos of my son until recently (he is 5 now). O would never post a pic of him with no clothes. And yes, because of the world we live in. And now that he is very self conscious, I make sure I don’t post any pics of him he could be embarrassed about. Like, he is conscious if his face is clean after he had chocolate or ice cream. While I would take photos of him with food all over his face, I will not post them and make them public, because in his eyes, in this moment in life that means embarrassment and I accept that. It is a thing of showing respect even if he never finds out about that. But then also yell that a toddler is not wearing a diaper or an underwear at the beach on a hot day or just in a close surrounding of his family is just evil and crazy.

  18. Cay says:

    It worries me she didn’t know her son had taken off his diaper. Yeah, I don’t want to be the person walking on the beach who finds said diaper.

  19. jules says:

    I’m so tired of this. Celebrities need to stop crying wolf after they shamelessly pimp themselves, and their kids, out on social media. And then go crying home to mommy because people aren’t nice and kissing their ass, like they expect.

  20. Annie says:

    Under that photo on IG some woman is telling her that she’s going to kill herself and won’t be in Detroit to see Pink perform. People, including Pink, trying to help and reach out to her and nothing. This happens a lot on famous people’s social media. Maybe all comments need to end.

  21. mycomment says:

    team pink.

  22. sammiches says:

    I’m sure when he grows up, her son will be happy that people berated Pink about this. Imagine thinking it’s okay to post your naked child on the internet for the entire world to see

  23. DS9 says:

    Can you like someone and be damned tired of them at the same time?

    Post what you want to send don’t give a shit or don’t bother posting.

    Given how people like to rag on her, she can’t be surprised that posting her kid’s weenie brought out the trolls.

    She’s fighting windmills

  24. Christy J says:

    So the original pic was not blocked out?

  25. Jag says:

    First, a baby needs to have on a diaper so that communicable diseases aren’t passed along in the sand if the baby poops and the parents don’t see it.

    Second, her daughter doesn’t have on a shirt, It’s not just the son who was half naked. Even in the scribbled picture, sub-human pedophiles can take that picture of her daughter and do things with it.

    Third, if you read the article posted by a pedophile hunter who implored parents to never post any pictures of their children on social media – even a private account with just family – you’ll never look at photos such as the one above the same way again.

    Those pictures should be private, and if they’re not, she should censor the images or post different ones, imo.

  26. otaku fairy says:

    At the end of the day, predators will continue to exist whether little kids of either sex- or anyone else, for that matter- are made to wear shirts to the pool or not. Predators aren’t really the reason why I think this wasn’t the best judgment on the parents’ parts.
