Singer Pink is all too familiar with mom-shamers. And now she’s sticking up for fellow celebrity mom Jessica Simpson.

As Dearly previously reported, singer and fashion designer Jessica Simpson was mom-shamed after she shared a photo of her 7-year-old daughter, Maxi Drew, with her hair dyed different shades of pink and purple.

Many of Simpson’s followers thought Maxi was too young to dye her hair. But others thought it was nice to see a girl so young expressing her individual style.

One of those people was fellow singer, Pink, who also knows what it feels like to share photos of her kids doing everyday activities, and getting shamed by some of her followers.

So, in defense of Simpson allowing her daughter to dye the ends of her hair, Pink also shared a photo of her dying her 8-year-old daughter Willow’s hair blue.

Pink wrote on Instagram:

I heard people were bummed on Jessica Simpson for letting her seven year old get her hair colored. So we thought we’d share what we did yesterday.

She paired the comments with the hashtags, “Blue hair, don’t care,” “Get your own kids,” “Parent police are actually just lonely, sad people,” and “I’ll dye your hair too, losers.”

The singer also disabled comments so that people couldn’t start shamed her as well.

As Dearly previously reported, Dr. Sejal Shah, a New York-based dermatological surgeon, told Good Housekeeping that it’s best for children to wait until they are at least 16 years old before dying their hair.

Dr. Shah said the reason for this is because children’s hair is often finer before they hit puberty and therefore, the dye can cause much more damage to prepubescent hair and skin.

Dr. Shah also added that it’s best to stick to temporary colors or a trusted professional when choosing to dye a child’s hair: “These temporary colors just coat the hair shaft and do not penetrate it as a dye would.”

    The public needs to butt out of their personal life.. contract on some mothers that do not take care of their child…

    I’m not sure if you did this on purpose, but you made it sound like her daughter is dying, not that she’s dying her hair. Shame on you , if that’s what you did to get people to read the article.

    Way to go pink, I commend you for being the strong mother that you are. Women have lost their way, we need to become the strong, unified women that used to be, for our daughters. I applaud you, with much love and respect.

    I have allergies to many things but the hair dyes have changed and are more friendly to the skin. So go ahead and dye your childs hair. Have fun while they are still young. A grandma that says go have fun.

    I thought the little girl was dying. Not hair dying.

    If they just learned how to spell, the misunderstanding would never have happened. To dye is to color something and the word would be changed to dyeing not dying.

    You and your daughter can do whatever you like, haters will stick their nose in and make rude comments all they want just blow it off. Keep doing whatever the two of you want!

    With all the problems of the world, if allowing your child to dye their hair is the worst thing happening then get up in arms. Even permanent hair color is temporary in this life.

    First off Pinks music is not for me I dont like it. But this is what is most vital in today’s world , to be a parent who loves Thier children enough to teach them values Morales and decency. Pink is an iconic powerful woman because she teaches young women and girls to live by a set of standards values and human goodness , decency and belief in themselves and thier values . If more people would do this the world would become better for us all. As a man I give her a triple A plus as a mother and a woman , not that she needs my dam male approval for any thing she chooses to do or be or teach her children! If people would mind Thier own life instead of others our kids would be better off and become better people. PINK , you go girl and screw the narrow minded self righteous bored pathetic lonely people sitting on Thier couches in Thier underwear and robes in curlers and eating Doritos and critiquing others!

    I was wondering if if her daughter asked if she could have her hair dyed purple. Or did mom just do it . If my daughter asked I would do it . Of course she would like it after mom did it.

    This is one of those times you really need to making the distinction between dying and dyeing. Ffs.

    I think this is awesome…women supporting women…as long as it is no harm to the child then let the child enjoy life and have fun…let her be the mom…

  • Wendi 1 year ago

    Oh they meant “dyeing” not “dying”, thank God! Someone needs to learn to spell! Startled the crap out of me!

  • JimM 1 year ago

    It’s dyeing not dying you idiots.

  • Debbie MeowMeow 1 year ago

    So let me get this straight… it’s not okay to color your child’s hair but it’s okay to let them live as the opposite gender in which they were born. Umm-kay.

    Angelina Jolie is letting her young daughter live as a boy but another child can’t have pink or blue in their hair?!

    Makes perfect sense. NOT!

    Good heavens don’t these people have anything else to do besides criticizing other people. My girls are 54 and 52 and I used to use food coloring to dye their hair for Halloween. Both still have beautiful thick blond hair. Please tell these people to get a life and mind their own business.
