Someone Daddy-Shamed Pink's Husband and She's Not Having It (Rightly So!)
Don't you know better than to eff with Pink?
Now why would a perfect stranger criticize Pink and Carey Hart’s parenting style? Because it’s the internet and that’s what trolls do, that's why. But Pink’s not letting it slip. The singer and mom of two shared a cute pic of her 1-year-old son, Jameson, with chocolate on his face and hands, captioning it, ”Chocolate is good for babies right? Help me Instagram, we can't possibly parent without you."
Not for this lady, who went after Pink’s husband, Carey Hart. "Sarcasm I love as I am too but with your husband being in the spotlight so often with his complete lack of regard for proper care or concern at times with your kids, this comment isn't funny, albeit Jameson is adorable. I love your music, your kids are beautiful but your husband, I'm sorry, lacks the responsibility your kids need in his care. I know, hit your fave button. I'll miss your posts."
Oh, wow. Not nice. And Pink reads her comments, because she responded — and she was pissed. Her response was epic.
”You sound well informed on the performance of my husband as a father. Answer me this: how often have you watched him parent? Do you know my children? Are you aware of their development? Even better: what are your credentials in parenting expertise? Are you a perfect parent? S--t, are you even a parent? A psychologist? A teacher? These are bold statements from a social media spectator. I won't even unfollow you. It's not worth the trouble. You sound like a person that could learn something by looking at all of this. God bless your perfect path. I have no interest in that myself. However, do check in from time to time to let us all know what other teachings you may have for us, oh perfect f--king stranger."
Wondering if the woman is still a fan? Anyway, Pink had every right to respond how she did.
Hart must have been on the “fan’s” mind after sharing a photo of himself on a motorbike with Jameson sitting in front of him earlier this week. "Don't worry parent police, I'm a professional," he captioned it.
But you know what, it isn't right to dad-shame, just like mom-shaming is not cool. As one dad points out on Today, dad-shaming is real, and it sucks.
"What I do know is that I hear and read from daddies who don’t appreciate these videos and/or dad shaming in whatever form it appears. Dads hear it all the time, like if a daddy takes a kid out to the playground or store, someone will ask, 'Are you babysitting?' And the questions and jokes and comments about daddies go downhill from there. Is there a double standard for men and daddies? Absolutely. Don’t believe me? That’s OK. Just look at most of the media representing fatherhood. Do they portray well-adjusted, mature, enlightened men? Or do the daddies look like bumbling fools?"
He added, "Men/daddies are contributing substantially to raising kids and all of its associated activities now more than ever. That’s a good thing. If a man/daddy wants a little extra attention or even praise for doing parenting, or daddy work, I guess I don’t understand what the problem is."
