One word: trolls. It seems like a lot of people think that they know how to raise her 2 children better than she does, and generally just enjoy passing comment at every given opportunity.

In an interview with The Mirror, the “Raise Your Glass” singer explained that labels don’t really exist in their household and that she’s opting against pushing gender roles on her kids. “We are a very label-less household,” she explained. “Last week Willow told me she is going to marry an African woman. I was like: ‘Great, can you teach me how to make African food?’ And she’s like, ‘Sure mama, and we are going to live with you while our house is getting ready.’”

Although many fans showed their support – praising the star for wanting to raise her children in a supportive environment – many people had nothing but negative things to say.

In April, the singer was trolled for an Instagram snap that she posted of her son and daughter on vacation with a pelican in shot, without noticing that Jameson wasn’t wearing a diaper. “2-year-olds don’t like to wear wet swim diapers and apparently at some point he took it off,” she explained to Ellen DeGeneres, while appearing on the talk show. “I don’t think like that. We live on a farm. My kids are naked. It’s what happens. I’m naked sometimes.”

Some trolls even went as far as to say that child services should be called. As you can imagine, the backlash got to the star, who said that the comments made her cry “so hard.” “I like to share my family. It’s my proudest moment in my whole life. I’m prouder of my kids than anything I’ve ever done,” she said.

The singer said that she would no longer be sharing her kids’ lives on her social media accounts. “I understand people saying you need to be more careful because you are in the public eye and you should have thought of that and they’re right, but there’s a nice way to say that. There’s a kind way to be online,” she explained.

While many innocent snaps of her children have been met with controversy and unsolicited outrage, the star has no problem clapping back. Although the songstress recently chose to ban comments on her Instagram page.

So much so, that she’s proposing a global online challenge, which she announced in this Instagram snap of her husband and daughter. The only thing that you have to do is go just one day without criticizing someone else. It seems easy, right? Well, it’s probably pretty hard for the trolls that make it their life mission to tear other people down.

His wife’s comments may be disabled, but his aren’t and were host to an array of backlash all surrounding a particular post of a guy at a gym. Hart had previously posted an image of a guy at the gym reading a newspaper, with his face blurred out just days before. Hart then trashed the guy in his post, writing: “This is a next level d— move. This dude was posted up reading the newspapers on the work out equipment. And friends wonder why I hate public gyms.”

“Maybe let’s start with removing the photo of the guy at the gym,” wrote one user. “Public criticism vs someone who’s full story you don’t know, is the worst type of criticism imo.” Either way, P!nk’s challenge is definitely conveying an important message. Just be nice online. It’s pretty simple. Speaking of being positive, not everyone is trolling P!nk’s parenting. In fact, many fans are supportive and have been empowered by her attitude. Well, both the singer and a fan were left in tears after an emotional encounter in a grocery store after a touching moment mom to mom. Keep scrolling to find out what left the pair in tears…
