Pink perfectly shuts down troll who tried to use a photo of Eddie Izzard as an insult

Pink has expertly taken down a troll who tried to insinuate she was Eddie Izzard.

The singer recently celebrated her 44th birthday and there were loads of fans across social media who wished her a happy day.

However, there were also some people who took the opportunity to be unnecessarily mean.

One troll uploaded a picture of Izzard and tagged Pink while saying on Twitter/X ' happy birthday'.


While the 'So What' musician could have just let it slide, she used it as an important lesson for everyone else.

"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. Thank you. I still don’t know you. Congrats. You’re no one."

Absolutely savagery.

But she wasn't done, not by a long shot.


She went in for the kill with a follow-up post that said: "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**ko.

"At least be creative next time dum dum."

Eddie Izzard is a British comedian who revealed back in 2020 that she would like to be referred to as 'she' and 'her'.


She has also adopted a feminine name to coincide with her new identity.

According to Politico, she said on the Political Party Podcast at Covent Garden back in March: "I prefer to see she/her, I don't mind he/him… I'm Eddie.

"There's another name I'm going to add in as well, which is Suzy, which I wanted to be since I was 10.


"I'm going to be Suzy Eddie Izzard, that's how I'm going to roll, so people can choose what they want. They can't make a mistake, they can't go wrong."


Pink said she decided to amplify the troll's post because it should serve as a warning to others.

"I post these things to show the kids I know- my own kids as well, that we are all occasionally treated badly," she said.

"I show them because they know me, and they know that my self-esteem does

"Not rely on the opinions of others. Nor does it rely on how many tickets I sell. Good/bad. Whatever. I love me.

"Now I shall sleep really really."
