“The very person who constructed this believed in children being children…Please keep your hatred and judgment to yourselves”
Superstar Pink posted several pictures on social media of her family’s time in Berlin, Germany. One picture shows Pink and Carey Hart’s children, Willow and Jameson, running around the Holocaust Memorial . Some comments weren’t too kind about the post such as one which read, “This place is not definitely a hide and seek place, dear Pink.”
Pink responded to the comments by editing her caption to say that the two children, as well as herself, are Jewish. She also wrote that the person who constructed the Holocaust Memorial believed in children being children. She also believes that the Memorial is a celebration of life after death. She then told commenters to keep all their unnecessary judgment and hatred to themselves.

Berlin, I love you. #holocaustmemorial #panamarestaurant #cocktailclasses #history #herstory #worldtour and for all of the comments; these two children are in actuality Jewish, as am I and the entirety of my mothers family. 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.
Pink received support from her fellow star Selma Blair writing she loves “that what happened is not being forgotten. I love this celebration of life. I love you.”
One commenter explained; Peter Eisenman, the architect of the memorial, has said that it isn’t any contrast to the place if children play there. “Children doing children stuff and enjoying their childhood is, in fact, a good thing there.”
Pink is infamous for her snappy comebacks. She’s no stranger to critics as a few people have criticized her parenting. Earlier this month, the “parenting police” attacked Pink when she posted a picture of her children playing outside in sprinklers.
“Here’s a picture of my child running through water. It wasn’t even filtered. What a waste of water. And no helmet? I hope she had sunscreen. If she slips and falls she may be traumatized for life. And her mother wasn’t even there. I was….. gasp…. working!!!! In another country!” Pink replied from Germany while on her Beautiful Trauma World Tour 2019.
She has shared that she’s not going to post any more pictures of her children on social media. She said that she loves sharing her family. She elaborated this by saying that she’s prouder of her kids than anything else she has ever done.
This controversy over @pink's kids running around the Berlin Holocaust memorial is silly. That memorial is famously abstract, leading many to climb & run around it. In any case, what greater symbol is there at a Holocaust memorial than Jewish children joyously running around it? https://t.co/G3D941OrXK
