Pink Slams People Who Refuse to Wear a Mask during COVID-19 Pandemic
Pop singer Pink took to social media to call out people who are not wearing a mask in public places. The "Raise Your Glass" singer stressed the importance of sacrifice to keep everyone safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.
On Instagram, she posted a close-up photo of herself wearing a mask. She captioned the July 14, 2020 photo: "I have asthma and I'm wearing two masks! I'm breathing fine and I'm not a selfish idiot! Wear a mask its not that hard [sic]. Happy Monday."
The post amassed more than half a million likes in just a day. The singer has close to eight million followers on the social media platform.
AN OPINIONATED SINGER
Pink has always been vocal about her opinions. She has also been critical of US President Donald Trump, as reported by Inquisitr.
Her public assertion of her political beliefs has even led to some fans unfollowing her on social media. But she is unfazed, tweeting: "You don't really even need to announce your exit. You have my blessing. Go. Go now."
In her latest post calling out people refusing to wear a mask, the singer is seen sitting in a car. She is wearing a navy-colored top.
A HARROWING EXPERIENCE
On April 2, 2020, the mother of two revealed that she and her three-year-old son, Jameson Moon Hart, tested positive for coronavirus, as reported by Insider.
The "Can We Pretend" singer described the experience as physically and emotionally challenging. She penned a Mother's Day article to share her harrowing experience.
Pink has been going out of her way to help people most affected by the pandemic.

Two weeks ago my three-year old son, Jameson, and I are were showing symptoms of COVID-19. Fortunately, our primary care physician had access to tests and I tested positive. My family was already sheltering at home and we continued to do so for the last two weeks following the instruction of our doctor. Just a few days ago we were re-tested and are now thankfully negative. It is an absolute travesty and failure of our government to not make testing more widely accessible. This illness is serious and real. People need to know that the illness affects the young and old, healthy and unhealthy, rich and poor, and we must make testing free and more widely accessible to protect our children, our families, our friends and our communities. In an effort to support the healthcare professionals who are battling on the frontlines every day, I am donating $500,000 to the Temple University Hospital Emergency Fund in Philadelphia in honor of my mother, Judy Moore, who worked there for 18 years in the Cardiomyopathy and Heart Transplant Center. Additionally, I am donating $500,000 to the City of Los Angeles Mayor’s Emergency COVID-19 Crisis Fund. THANK YOU to all of our healthcare professionals and everyone in the world who are working so hard to protect our loved ones. You are our heroes! These next two weeks are crucial: please stay home. Please. Stay. Home.❤️
HELPING WITH COVID-19 RELIEF
Pink and her son weathered the disease after sheltering at home for two weeks. They have since tested negative for the virus.
Pink has been going out of her way to help people severely affected by the pandemic. She has announced her plan to donate $1 million.
The amount will be used for the emergency relief fund of the Temple University Hospital Fund in Philadelphia. Another beneficiary is the COVID-19 response fund by the Mayor's Fund for Los Angeles.
HER HUSBAND AND CHILDREN
Aside from Jameson, Pink is also mother to nine-year-old Willow Sage. She shares her son and daughter with husband Carey Hart.
Pink and Carey, a professional motocross race, married on January 7, 2006, in Costa Rica. Their relationship hit a bump two years later.
In February 2008, the singer announced her separation from Carey. They underwent counseling to save their marriage. In February 2010, Pink confirmed they were back together.
Being in the spotlight has not been easy for Pink and her family. The singer recently revealed that she has experienced mom-shaming on social media.
In one incident, she could not help but cry after reading harsh comments in a photo she posted of Willow and Jameson interacting with a pelican. Because of this, she resolved not to share pictures of her children online.
