Following the recent election of Donald Trump as US President, singer P!nk has shared her thoughts on the matter and not all her fans are impressed.
P!nk posted on Facebook today, “To anyone reading this: if you think this is a time for misogynistic jokes, or for laughing about voting in a person that doesn’t believe in climate change, or humanity.
To any of you closet racists, homophobes, sexists….. please block me. Please unfollow me. We do not respect each other. You do not have my respect, and I obviously don’t have yours. We are not friends.
To everyone else, we shall overcome. Stay on the path of love and tolerance. Hug your kids. Teach them about diversity and about fighting for others, and sticking up for themselves. I will do my part.”
Fans have replied with…
“Wow, so I’ve been a big fan of yours since your first album and because I don’t agree with your candidate you’re going to be so cold and rude? That’s fine.”
“Donald Trump is no more racist then Hillary Clinton. None of this had to do with any of that. But of middle class being tired of getting shafted. I’m sure you have forgotten how it feels to struggle day to day. With you and your spouse working full time and never having enough food to eat. While lazy people who don’t work get free food, housing, money, and insurance. While we have to pay out atrocious amount for minimum coverage. While rich people, like your self get huge tax breaks.”
“Wow.. I’m none of those things, yet..I voted for Trump due to the fact Hillary is as corrupt as they come. What you just said I’d the whole problem with our country today… think like me act like me or get a kickin attitude.. thought so much better off you. I’m sorry I was wrong!”
“Teaching your kids hatred is what you are doing..unfortunately.”
“Acceptance and tolerance is what you preach yet you’re asking anyone who doesn’t believe in the same things as you to delete you. Hmmmm ok bye.”
“Your statement is so contradictory. Which is it, tolerance, acceptance of others that are different, or it’s my way or the highway?. Consider unfollowed.”
“Welp…guess we are done….so much for tolerance….respect for different opinions is a hallmark of democracy…..see ya…..at your request you are blocked….”
“You just lost a fan – not that you care. You don’t know me or what I stand for or who I stand with but being a bully is certainly no way to behave. HEY! Maybe you and Miley can be roommates in Canada!!”
“Unfollowed, unliked. Thank you for showing your true self and low tolerance for anyone who doesn’t agree with you just like “her”. I’ve unliked and unfollowed a lot of celebrities recently for this exact reason. You claim love for all but you’re just a bunch of hypocrites trying to force your influence on humanity. We just want to live in peace. To each his own. Pray for people’s hearts. But thank you again for letting me know you have no respect for the “deplorables”, hypocrite.”
