Pink defends picture showing her children running in Holocaust memorial: 'Keep your hatred and judgment to yourselves'

Singer and songwriter Pink was recently seen vacationing in Berlin as she took to social media to share several photos from the city.

The 39-year-old singer came under fire after one of these pictures showed her two children—Willow Sage, 8, and James Moon, 2—running through the Holocaust memorial.

Now, the singer has hit back at the critics of her recent Instagram photo and defended her decision to post the image by speaking about her family's Jewish heritage.

She wrote in the caption of the images, "For all of the comments; these two children are in actuality Jewish, as am I," she wrote.

She also added that all of her mother's side of the family is also Jewish. "The very person who constructed this believed in children being children, and to me, this is a celebration of life after death. Please keep your hatred and judgment to yourselves," she added.

Peter Eisenman, the American architect who had designed the memorial, had previously shared that he had no problem with some of the more light-hearted ways that visitors respond to the place. "People have been jumping around on those pillars forever. They’ve been sunbathing, they’ve been having lunch there and I think that’s fine," Eisenman shared with BBC in 2017. 

However, this is not the first time when Pink has hit back at her critics. In the past, she had been very vocal about the 'parenting police' as she told fans to unfollow her if they didn't like what she was posting. Meanwhile, many of her fans have also come out supporting her over the post.

One social media user shared, "Please don’t imagine for one second that the people who died in that massacre wouldn’t want the sound of children’s laughter to surround the space outside because it is SO HEAVY inside." While another one added, "Just because you visit a sad place, does not mean you have to be sad and take sad photos. People would much rather have their deaths be a ground for happiness rather than sadness."
