Pink's husband slams parent-shamers who criticized him for not having a life jacket on his son

Repeat after me: Pink and Carey Hart don’t want your parenting advice.

The couple is constantly the recipients of unsolicited remarks criticizing the way they raise their happy and healthy children, Willow, 8, and Jameson, 2. Typically, it comes in the form of social media comments on pictures they post of their wee ones — to the point where Pink vowed to stop sharing photos of them and, if she does, she turns off the comments.

But Carey doesn’t turn off the comments and on a video of a boating trip with their son — outfitted in an adorable Spider-Man outfit but without a life jacket as the boat moved — and the online parenting police came calling.

One of the most responded to comments — which has since been deleted — was, “I hate to be ‘that parent but [life] jackets dude.” A whole thread followed with people agreeing and disagreeing. Pretty quickly, however, Hart had enough of the banter, responding to one commenter, “Move the f**k on.”

The commenter telling him to put a life jacket on the child wasn’t alone though. “Accidents do happen,” someone else wrote. Added another, “It only takes a split second for something to happen.”

And the original commenter shared the reason behind her concern — a personal experience with her own daughter.

The life jacket comments were predicted however.

And he had so tons of supporters in his corner over it. For instance:

And some wondered whether Hart was baiting his own followers with the video in the first place.

After all — it’s something they’ve been dealing with a long time. To the point where Pink often predicts what people will write.

Though she really reached a breaking point over comments made about her son when she accidentally posted a photo of him with his swim diaper off.

Pink has been on the road for her Beautiful Trauma tour this summer. It tapers off after this weekend and then she has just two more dates scheduled this year.
