Pink bites back about 'disrespectful' photo of her kids at Holocaust memorial

Pink has sent a fiery message to those accusing her of "disrespecting" the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe in Berlin, Germany. 

The 'So What' singer posted an Instagram photo of her children running between the pillars at the site designed by architect Peter Eisenman with the caption: "Berlin, I love you". 

Apparently pre-empting the possible controversy the photo might create, Pink continued: "For all of the comments; these two children are in actuality Jewish, as am I and the entirety of my mother's 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."

Despite her explanation, critics immediately attacked the Grammy winner for allowing her kids to seemingly "play" at the memorial, rather than take a sombre moment of reflection. 

"Τhis place is definitely not a hide and seek place, dear Pink," one comment read. 

"A memorial for dead people is not the place to have fun. Maybe leave the kids behind next time," said another. 

Some social media users appeared to take personal offence to the image. 

"Where is your family buried? I'm going to have my kids run all over their graves," said one person. 

Meanwhile, many leapt to Pink's defence, bolstering her point about Eisenman's approach to the design and how it should be interacted with. 

"Peter Eisenman (the architect) said he wanted visitors to the memorial to behave freely, and has said he can imagine it as a place where children play between the pillars or picnic on the fringes," one comment read. 

"I'm Jewish and my relatives died in the camps," said another. "It gives me joy to see children enjoying life and continuing on when so many died."

One fan wrote simply: "Jewish children running blissfully through this memorial shows #theydidnotwin."
