Superstar Pink has had enough. After yet another social media attack on her parenting, the singer has disabled comments on her Instagram account which boasts more than six million followers.

"Just a friendly reminder to those of you that need it : there will be no more comments on this page! Hahahaha!," the singer wrote alongside a photo of her husband Carey Hart relaxing in a pool with glass of wine. "Looks like you're gonna have to go tell it on the mountain!!!!! Good luck to ya! And to everyone else; I love you forever."

The move came after the famous mother-of-two was criticised twice in two weeks over photos of her children she posted on Instagram.

Pink, always a candid personality when it comes to her opinions on parenting, this week defended an Instagram post of her kids - Willow, eight, and Jameson, two - running through the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin.

"Berlin, I love you," she began the post. "And for all of the comments; these two children are in actuality Jewish, as am I and the entirety of my mothers (sic) 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."

While some Instagram users criticised the 39-year-old singer for letting her children run though the memorial, actress Selma Blair came to Pink's defense in the comments section, writing, "I love Berlin too. I love that what happened is not being forgotten. I love this celebration of life. I love you."

Several comments on the post pointed to an interview that Peter Eisenman, the architect who designed the memorial, granted to the BBC in 2017, in which he called the site "an everyday occurrence," rather than "sacred ground."

"(There) are no dead people under my memorial," he said. "My idea was to allow as many people of different generations, in their own ways, to deal or not to deal with being in that place. And if they want to lark around I think that's fine."

Pink also courted controversy last week, when she shared another photo of herself and Jameson at a zoo in Hamburg, Germany, which incited comments that suggested she supported keeping animals in captivity.

"I believe in capturing a child's interest and love for an animal before teaching them about things like captivity," she responded to one commenter. "But thank you, the world needed your wisdom today."

"Here's the thing though...I don't remember asking you for your opinion or your help in raising my child," she replied to another critic in the comments section. "This isn't the place for a debate. Call cnn, or call the zoo." 

Earlier this year Pink stated she would no longer share photos of her children on social media after trolls criticised her family over everything from from cooking while baby wearing and putting her Jameson on a dirt bike, to sharing a family photo at the dinner table and letting their toddler son run around at home without a nappy on. 

Appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in April, Pink said: "I'm prouder of my kids than anything I've ever done and I just won't share them anymore. I won't do it, I'm not posting pictures of them anymore."

The superstar only recently began sharing photos of her children again. She has obviously now decided a better option is to ban the trolls from her Instagram feed, rather than her adorable son and daughter.
