YOUTUBER Piper Rockelle, 14, fired back at Pink after the singer accused the teen’s mom of “exploiting” her.
The 41-year-old artist said it “isn’t okay” that Piper’s mom is taking and sharing photos of her daughter in a bikini for social media.
With more than 8 million subscribers on YouTube, the teen clapped back at Pink to say that her content features more than just her in a swimsuit.
She slammed the singer and told Today: “I don’t think Pink has ever seen one of my YouTube videos because if she did, she’d see it’s just my friends and me having fun and acting like ourselves.
“The content we make is the kind of stuff anyone can watch.”
‘WHY SHAME PEOPLE?’
The eighth-grader added that there’s also “nothing wrong with being in a bikini,” asking: “Why do we shame people for that? Pictures of teenagers in bikinis having fun are not sexual.”
Piper, who pointed out that Pink was 14 years old when she joined the group Basic Instict, continued: “They’re only sexual if you view us that way.
“Why was it OK for her to follow her dreams but not OK for me to follow mine?”
Over the weekend, Pink tweeted out her frustration over seeing the YouTuber’s Instagram photos, blaming the teen’s mom.
The celebrity mother-of-two wrote: “How many kids like Piper Rockelle are being exploited by their parents?
“And at what point do the rest of us say … ‘this isn’t okay for a 13 yr old to be posing in a bikini whilst her MOTHER takes the photo?!?!’”
Piper’s mom, Tiffany, fired back, while speaking with Today, that she’s just been trying to help her daughter reach her goals, saying Piper has always had a “strong love of performing.”
HERE FOR HER
She added: “So long as Piper wants to do this and it’s her passion, I’m here for her to follow that dream and protect her.”
This all comes after Pink jumped in to help the Norwegian women’s beach handball team after they were fined for not wearing bikini bottoms.
She accused the European Handball Federation of being sexist after sanctioning the team.
Pink, who recently lost her dad after a long battle with prostate cancer, shares two kids with her husband Carey Hart.
Earlier this year, Pink and her daughter Willow wowed viewers with a “beautiful” trapeze performance at the Billboard Music Awards.
The singer is known for her high-flying stunts, but fans were amazed to see Willow join her to perform their mother-daughter duet called Cover Me in Sunshine.
