So the three-time Grammy winner, 40, who is a mastermind at defending herself, fired back at the taunts and blatantly racist comments that questioned her unwavering support for the Black Lives Matter movement.
After one follower attempted to explain to Pink and other BLM supporters that she believed the circumstances of George Floyd could happen to ”any one of us,” the mother-of-two called the woman “the epitome of white privilege.”
”The saddest part is that you don’t even hear yourself and probably never will,” the 40-year-old singer replied.
When another commentator tried to discredit her intelligence by calling her ”stupid,” Pink sarcastically wrote back, ”What an insightful and helpful comment.”
The trolls’ reactions were sparked by Pink sharing a screenshot of the Bad Guy hitmaker’s recent essay, which came in the wake of the Minneapolis, Minnesota killing of unarmed black man George Floyd at the hands of police officers on Monday.
In the series of text screens, Eilish began by writing, ”I’ve been trying to take this week to figure out a way to address this delicately. I have an enourmous [sic] platform and I try really hard to be respectful and take time to think through what I say and how I say it… But holy f**king s**t I’m gonna just start talking.”
”Will you shut the f**k uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuup???? No one is saying your life doesn’t matter. No one is saying your life is not hard.”
