Pink Shuts Down Twitter Troll Who Insults Her Appearance
By Paige Gawley
Pink took to Twitter Wednesday to call out yet another Internet troll.
When a Twitter user said that the 38-year-old singer "looks so old that [she] should be named Purple instead," Pink fired back with two tweets of her own.
"You must be from LA," she wrote. "Well, there are a few people left in the world that choose to age naturally. And I’ve earned every f**king minute of my 38 years. How you lookin' though? Cause I never heard of ya til you put my name in your mouth. I shall call you little purple troll."
The pop star went on to tweet that why it's important that to look your age. "I am of the mindset that it’s a blessing to grow old," Pink proclaimed. "That if your face has lines around your eyes and mouth it means you’ve laughed a lot. I pray I look older in 10 years, 'cause that will mean I’m alive."
This isn't the first time Pink has stood up for herself on social media.
Back in 2015 after attending the John Wayne 30th Annual Odyssey ball in Beverly Hills, the mother of two was criticized for her size.
"While I admit that that dress didn't photograph as well as it did in my kitchen, I will also admit that I felt very pretty," Pink wrote in part. "I am perfectly fine, perfectly happy, and my healthy, voluptuous and crazy strong body is having some much deserved time off."
The feisty star also spoke to ET about online haters in 2015 about how she handles bullies.
"I don't take well to bullying. I never have, she admitted. "I'm not a person that will be bullied. I'm not a person that will stand by watching other people bullied."
Pink added, "I am a girl, I have feelings and people think I take no sh*t and I'm tough, tougher than nails, but I'm a human being."
During her acceptance speech for the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2017, Pink shared the powerful message she gave her 6-year-old daughter, Willow.
"We don't change. We take gravel in a shell and we make a pearl, and we help other people to change," Pink recited. "You, my darling girl, are beautiful and I love you."
Despite her critics, Pink was named People's Most Beautiful earlier this year. Watch the video below to find out why the singer laughed when she found out she'd nabbed the honor:
