The 39-year-old said that she finally decided to stop posting photos of her kids when she shared an image of her and her children admiring a pelican that flew into their room and stayed there for hours, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Commenters criticized her online because her 2-year-old son, Jameson, wasn’t wearing pants or a diaper.
After an image of her 2-year-old received backlash on Instagram, the P!nk says, "I just won't share them anymore."
“We live on a farm. My kids are naked. It’s what happens,” Pink said.
She added, “People went as far as saying, ‘Someone should call Child Services,’ because he didn’t have a diaper on, and ‘How dare I?’ — just some of the nastiest things.”
After that, she “cried so hard after that because I like to share my family. … I’m prouder of my kids than anything I’ve ever done and I just won’t share them any more. I won’t do it,” Pink said.

Pink said she realizes that, as a celebrity, she is in the limelight. However, she takes issue with “keyboard warriors,” she said.
“There’s a kind way to be online. I’m open to kindness online,” she said.
The image of the pelican and her children is still on her Instagram page, but she changed the caption.
“There’s something seriously wrong with a lot of you out there,” Pink said, adding that, “as any normal mother at the beach, I didn’t even notice he took off his swim diaper.”
“I deleted it because you’re all [expletive] disgusting. And now I’m turning off my comments and shaking my head at the state of social media and keyboard warriors,” Pink, whose real name is Alecia Beth Moore, added on Instagram.
“And the negativity that you bring to other people’s lives. There is something seriously wrong with a lot of you out there.”
