Pink Tells ‘Racists, Homophobes, Sexists’ to Unfollow Her After Trump Win
Pink, like just over half of American voters and dozens of her fellow celebrities, was crushed to learn that despite Hillary Clinton winning the popular vote, Donald Trump had been elected president of the United States. The "Just Give Me a Reason" singer has been retweeting both writers and stars like Ellen DeGeneres and Chris Evans' dissent, and she shared her own thoughts in an Instagram post on Wednesday (November 9). Sending any of her less-than-tolerant fans packing, the message also offered solidarity to those feeling hopeless after the election's outcome.
"To any of you closet racists, homophobes, sexists..... please block me. Please unfollow me. We do not respect each other," Pink wrote under a selfie that found her wearing a knit cap with tiny blonde braids underneath.
"You do not have my respect, and I obviously don't have yours. We are not friends," she continued. "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."
