We can always count on Pink to speak her mind and she definitely isn’t afraid to stand up to bullies. Pink was recently called fat by a bunch of trolls on Twitter who suggested she gained weight. Pink gave the perfect response to the body shamers. During an interview with Entertainment Tonight at the BMI Awards she explained more abut her response and how she isn’t going to be affected by bullying.
Pink explained that she may have a reputation for being a tough, punk rock girl but she is a person with real feelings and real emotions. Furthermore, Pink said that she will not tolerate bullying.
“I don’t take well to bullying. I never have. I’m not a person that will be bullied. I’m not a person that will stand by watching other people bullied.”
She continued by saying that the fat-shaming trolls think that their opinions matter to her but they don’t:
“I think people have gotten it wrong. They think their opinion matters and holds weight and I don’t know where or why they’re giving themselves so much credit you know? So I thought it was important for me to remind them that I don’t care. My life is full, I like food a lot and I really like to cook, I like to live, I find joy in that and were doing alright in the Hart household.”
You tell ’em, girl. Trolls think they can say whatever vile things they want because of the anonymity of the internet but that doesn’t mean it needs to affect you. Pink’s wise words show that you don’t have to let the haters get to you. If you focus on all of the positive things in your life, that’s what matters, not some random Twitter troll.
