"At least be creative next time," the singer replied.

Shitposting feels like the kind of thing the internet should have collectively outgrown by now, especially considering how much intentional hate, divisiveness, and misinformation gets put out by people every day, but apparently the practice is still going strong. But Pink, for one, apparently is not here for it.

The “So What” singer recently celebrated her 44th birthday, but among all the well-wishes from fans was at least one blue check using their increased visibility on Twitter (thanks, Elon!) to be a weirdo for no reason.

“Happy birthday @Pink,” the user wrote, sharing a photo of Suzy Eddie Izzard.

The message didn’t go over too well with Pink, who actually opted to reply rather than ignore and move on.

“Thank you so much,” she wrote. “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.”

She ended her initial response by reiterating her thanks and adding, “Congrats. You’re no one.”

It’s honestly unclear what the intention behind the tweet was, or what, exactly, the Twitter user thought would get a laugh—mainly because they do have a number of tweets expressing their support for trans people. But in an era where we have unprecedented access to celebrities and other strangers, it’s a good reminder to be intentional about what we say to people, even if we assume they’ll never see it.
