Get the message already, keyboard warriors: Pink does not have time for your body-bullying.
Last month, the chart-topping pop star, mother and generally great woman posted some photos from a cancer benefit she attended in honour of a close friend.

Pink — whose off-stage name is Alecia Moore — posted this very dignified response on social media:
