Pink is unapologetically standing by her opinions.
Over the weekend, the “So What” singer caught some backlash after calling the Covington Catholic high school students’ behavior “appalling and beyond disrespectful” during a viral encounter with Native American elder Nathan Phillips.
Pink took to Instagram Thursday to direct any “keyboard warriors” who have a problem with her views to hit the unfollow button, which she noted is at the “top right of your screen.”
“I am the same girl I’ve always been…I was raised by a Vietnam veteran who taught me to stand up for what I believe to be right. Even if that means standing alone,” Pink, 39, wrote in a lengthy message. “I do not now, nor have I ever apologized for some of my very polarizing opinions.”

She continued: “If you are surprised by this, or offended, you have every right to unfollow me, as you really don’t know who I am. I am mostly peace and love, with a little bit of go (expletive) yourself.”
The mother of two compared the “broken” state of the country to her parents’ divorce, adding it makes her “very angry and sad.”
“We all remind me of my parents right before their divorce when they could no longer even speak to each other with anything less than hatred and vitriol. It’s tragic,” she wrote. “And we’re all to blame.”

Pink, who was born Alecia Beth Moore, vowed to continue voicing her opinions despite online criticism and threats, in pursuit of “justice” and “equality for all.”
“These are the ideals my father raised me with. And you all cannot talk me out of it,” she wrote. “No matter what vile things you say about me and my husband and my children. Onwards and upwards. Keep fighting the good fight.”
A day earlier, Pink posted a picture of herself flipping the bird to the camera while wearing a motorcycle helmet. “This one goes out to all the keyboard warriors,” she captioned the NSFW shot.
