Pink doesn’t have time for mom-shaming.
Earlier this week, Jessica Simpson took heat from the Instagram community after sharing a photo of her 7-year-old daughter Maxwell’s newly-dyed hair. Just days later, Entertainment Tonight reported that the “Can We Pretend” singer has shown her support for her fellow celebrity mom in an epic way.
On Thursday, August 1, the star took to her own Instagram account to show her 6.6 million followers what she and her 8-year-old daughter Willow had done earlier in the week. The upload included two snaps cropped to fit side-by-side into one photo, revealing that the mother-daughter duo had followed in the Simpson family’s footsteps and added color to Willow’s locks.
The snap on the left saw Pink’s daughter sitting at the table with a book in her hand as the singer, wearing a pair of long and black gloves, ran a tinting brush through Willow’s short blonde tresses. Right next to the photo was another image showing the process’s aftermath: The young girl’s hair was now a bright, electric blue.
Always one to speak her mind, Pink called out Jessica Simpson’s mom-shamers in the caption of her post, adding several hashtags including “#getyourownkids” and “#parentpoliceareactuallyjustlonelysadpeople.”
Fans of both celebrity moms clearly loved the display of solidarity. After just 13 hours of going live on Instagram, Pink’s post has racked up more than 800,000 likes. She also caused another hit directed at the mom-shamers by disabling comments on her post.
To clarify, the “Walk Me Home” singer’s latest Instagram upload was in response to an upload shared by Jessica Simpson earlier this week.
On Tuesday, July 30, the fashion designer revealed to her 4.7 million followers that her daughter Maxwell was inspired by the Disney Channel movie The Descendants to dye the ends of her long, blonde hair purple and pink. As The Inquisitr previously reported, the post was met with a mix of responses, with some slamming the mother of three for adding color to her young daughter’s hair.
It should come to no surprise that Pink took it upon herself to defend Simpson. The rock star has been subject to mom-shaming a number of times, and has no problem clapping back at her critics.
“I’m surprised you go to zoos. Animals shouldn’t be in captivity. If it was a sanctuary — that’d be different,” one person commented, to which Pink had yet another epic response.
“I believe in capturing a child’s interest and love for an animal before teaching them about things like captivity,” she said. “But thank you, the world needed your wisdom today.”
