US singer Pink just showed social media's self-appointed parenting police not to mess with the reigning Queen of Clap Backs.
Hordes of social media mothers, armed with their picket fence pitchforks, came after Jessica Simpon for allowing her daughter Maxwell, 7, to dye her hair pink. With Maxwell now a glaring tribute to her eponymous namesake, Pink decided to put the mum-shamers in their place.

"I heard people were bummed on Jessica Simpson for letting her seven-year-old get her hair coloured," Pink, 39, captioned a shot of her daughter Willow Hart, 8, having her hair dyed blue.
"So we thought we'd share what we did yesterday. #bluehairdontcare #getyourownkids #parentpoliceareactuallyjustlonelysadpeople illdyeyourhairtoo."
Pink then disabled the comments, leaving the self-proclaimed matriarchs of Instagram to clutch their pearls with seething resentment.
Earlier this week, Simpson, 39, shared a snap to Instagram of her oldest debuting her new pink locks. Simpson says Maxi Drew Johnson's look was inspired by her love of Disney's Descendants.
"So sad to see a child this young getting her hair dyed," one user lamented.
"She looked so much prettier with her natural golden locks. She should still be a child in every sense. That time is short."
"Don't like it all...the new colour makes her look older than her age," claimed another.
"Why start ruining her hair so young?" another Instagrammer chimed in.
"Please don't start posting glam of your kids. We have the Kardashian no-class-clan doing that."
Celebrity colourist Ritz Hazan and the official account for Disney's Descendants expressed their love of the look as Simpson's followers rushed to defend her parenting.
Pink has had several run-ins with the parenting police doing their routine stops. Early last month the mother-of-two faced intense backlash after Willow and her brother Jameson, 2, were snapped running through Berlin's Holocaust Memorial.
The 'So What' hitmaker wasn't having any of it.
"For all 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."
Take several seats.
