Singer Pink, 39, has hit out at “the parenting police” for criticising how she raises her two kids, Willow, 8, and two-year-old Jameson in an expletive-laden social media post.

On Tuesday, the “What About Us” hit-maker shared a photo to Instagram of her swimsuit-clad daughter Willow having a ball running through lawn sprinklers.

She captioned the happy snap with a searing - and sweary - message to her haters that seemingly mocked their own negative comments.

Bringing the sass

“Here’s a picture of my child running through water,” Pink - born Alecia Moore - began.

“It wasn’t even filtered. What a waste of water,” she went on sarcastically.

“And no helmet? I hope she had sunscreen. If she slips and falls she may be traumatised for life.”

“And her mother wasn’t even there. I was..... gasp.... working!!!! In another country!” she concluded.

She also included the x-rated hashtags, “#f***theparentingpolice,” “#ifyoufeellikeunfollowingpleasegoddoitquickly,” “#opinionsarelikea**holes” and “#somany**holes.”

The Grammy Award-winner appears to have disabled the comment function on the post - which has since been liked over 350,000 times.

Pink’s had enough

This isn’t the first time the feisty songstress has taken a stand against online trolls. Back in March, she slammed Instagram users for their “seriously wrong” comments on a photo of her son.

The youngster was pictured without his swimming bottoms, leading to comments about his genitals.

“There’s something seriously wrong with a lot of you out there. Going off about my baby’s penis? About circumcision??? Are you for real?” the exasperated singer wrote.

“I deleted it because you’re all f***ing disgusting. And now I’m turning off my comments and shaking my head at the state of social media and keyboard warriors, and the negativity that you bring to other people’s lives,” she continued.

She also copped flack in August 2018 when she was spotted on a Byron Bay beach with her family the day after cancelling her Sydney concert due to illness.

True to form, Pink took to Instagram to roast reports that she’d thrown a sickie, stating that she’d visited the doctor twice and was on “antibiotics and steroids.”

“You can think whatever you want, it’s your right, but [...] I have never phoned in a single tour, I have an impeccable record for not cancelling,” she wrote.

“The snark in this is unbelievable and makes me long for a nicer world,” she added.

The postponed show was eventually rescheduled.
