The 'Just Give Me a Reason' hitmaker takes to Instagram to send a lengthy message to those who are 'offended' by her opinions on a confrontation between a student and a native American elder.

AceShowbiz - Pink isn't apologizing for her "polarizing opinions" after speaking out about the viral confrontation between a MAGA hat-wearing student and a Native American elder and veteran. Taking to her Instagram page on Thursday, January 24, the "Get the Party Started" hitmaker clapped back at those Internet trolls.

"Throw up Thursday. I am the same girl I've always been. I have always admitted when I am wrong. I have apologized many times," she wrote along with a picture of her wearing a red tank top. "I'm a big believer in apologies, when you're wrong. 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."

"I do not now, nor have I ever apologized for some of my very polarizing opinions," she stressed, before challenging those critics to unfollow her, "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 f**k yourself." She continued, "So when you keyboard warriors (anonymous toughguys) threaten me? that middle finger is pointed at you. Again: the unfollow button is (I think) top right of your screen. It lets you unfollow people you find make you uncomfortable. It's great. It really works."

She then addressed the situation of the politics in America. "This country is broken right now in a lot of ways," she jotted down. "It makes me very angry and sad." She added, "There are many beautiful people in the world and in this country who want equality for all. Justice. For people to be paid for their work. For their leaders to communicate in productive ways. For children to have respect for others, for veterans to be honored and treated with respect." She concluded the message by encouraging her followers to "keep fighting" for the country.

Throw up Thursday. I am the same girl I’ve always been. I have always admitted when I am wrong. I have apologized many times. I’m a big believer in apologies, when you’re wrong. 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. I do not now, nor have I ever apologized for some of my very polarizing opinions. 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 f*ck yourself. So when you keyboard warriors (anonymous toughguys) threaten me? that middle finger is pointed at you. Again: the unfollow button is (I think) top right of your screen. It lets you unfollow people you find make you uncomfortable. It’s great. It really works. This country is broken right now in a lot of ways. It makes me 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. And we’re all to blame. There are many beautiful people in the world and in this country who want equality for all. Justice. For people to be paid for their work. For their leaders to communicate in productive ways. For children to have respect for others, for veterans to be honored and treated with respect. These are the ideals my father raised me with. And you all cannot talk me out of it. No matter what vile things you say about me and my husband and my children. Onwards and upwards. Keep fighting the good fight.

Pink posted the lengthy message after she weighed in on the viral video capturing the encounter between Covington student Nicholas Sandmann and Native American elder Nathan Phillips. "Appalling and beyond disrespectful. Nauseating," she described the situation.

Calling out the student, she went on writing, "What's going to be done about this? And why can't this s**t happen when I'm around? There'd be some headlines that day. That's for sure. Where are the chaperones???? Teachers??? Parents????"
