Singer Pink has hit back at a troll who compared her to British comedian and actor Eddie Izzard, also known as Suzy Izzard.

The singer shared the troll’s tweet, which showed Izzard at a function, with the caption: “Happy birthday Pink” and tagging the Get the Party Started singer.

Calling out the troll, Pink shared a series of messages explaining why she had shown the “ignorant” comment to her 12-year-old daughter.

And fans responded in droves, with at least one noting that the troll apparently was also trying to be “hurtful” to Izzard as well as Pink.

The singer wrote: “Thank you so much. I just showed my 12-year-old daughter your post.

“I explained to her that I’ve never met you, I don’t know you, and I have no idea why you would go out of your way to be hateful.

“It was a good lesson in ignorance.

“Thank you. I still don’t know you. Congrats. You’re no-one.”

One fan noted there was nothing wrong with the picture of Eddie Izzard, and that the troll was seeming to have a crack not only at Pink but also at the comedian.

“To be fair Pink, I should like to point out there is absolutely nothing wrong with the person in that photo as well,” they wrote.

“Seems like they want to make fun of them and that is hurtful to that person too.”

Another observed: “The sad part about it is that your daughter is probably more mature than the Middle Aged Adult who did this.”

In a follow-up message, Pink said that the types of trolls who sent messages such as this were usually “anonymous, lonely and miserable”.

“But most people in the world are smart, good and rad,” she added.

In a third tweet, Pink continued: “MOST IMPORTANTLY – what a wasted opportunity here.”

“There are so many pictures you could’ve chosen that were actually me that were worse than this picture, you nameless f****,” she wrote.

“At least be creative next time, dum dum.”

She went on to conclude in a final tweet that she posted the troll’s message to show her kids that “we are all occasionally treated very badly”.

“I show them because they know me, and they know that my self-esteem does not rely on the opinions of others,” she said.

“Nor does it rely on how many tickets I sell. Good/bad. Whatever.

“I love Me. Now I shall sleep really, really well. Night night.”

Fans once again took to the comments to send their love to Pink.

’l’ll never forget what you said in a behind the scenes video in the 2000s,” one fan wrote.

“You said something like, ‘Sometimes I think, I don’t like my legs, they’re so big. But then I think, that means they’re strong and they’ll carry me when I’m older.’

“You inspired me to be kinder to my body.”

“This is why we love you. You’re strong and a damn good role model for not only your own kids, but for everyone,” wrote another.

“We got your back always.”

Noted another: “Agree completely, but also – Eddie/Suzy Izzard is an icon.”

One fan said Pink was “beautiful inside and out,” encouraging her to “never change”.

“You are a TREASURE,” another noted.

“You think about your actions and you care about people. You’re great.”

Eddie Izzard has not publicly commented on the Pink comparison.
