Pink disables Instagram comments after growing tired of 'parenting police' criticism

The rocker disabled the comments on her Instagram page, apparently due to being tired of the constant criticism of her parenting methods from some followers.

She captioned a recent post featuring her husband Carey Hart "Just a friendly reminder to those of you that need it: there will be no more comments on this page! Hahahaha! looks like you’re gonna have to go tell it on the mountain!!!!! Good luck to ya! And to everyone else; I love you forever."

It seems this is in response to the ongoing criticism she's received from 'fans' and followers on social media.

P!nk is no stranger to online mom-shaming, having been criticised by followers for everything, from posting of her kids at a zoo, swimming without a nappy on and running at the Holocast Museum.

As one supportive fan named @nat_kap commented "You're judging her for [taking] her baby to the zoo, you're judging her for posting her baby without a diaper. You're judging her for posting a photo with her children running in the holocaust memorial. Why you follow her?"  

Why indeed?
