P!nk and her husband Carey Hart are receiving major heat from concerned fans after a family holiday photo that was supposed to be hilarious was taken badly.
The couple who share two children, daughter Willow and son Jameson, decided to do something unusual and eccentric for their holiday family card, but many didn’t receive it well.
P!nk And Carey Hart’s Holiday Photo
Over the holidays, P!nk and Carey joined the usual trend of releasing heartwarming family photos to celebrate Christmas. However, as mentioned earlier, the lovebirds and their two kids decided to do something out of the box.
The lovely family-of-four posed outdoors in casual outfits and struck a controversial pose. The clan stood in a line, with Carey at the far right standing next to Willow while P!nk was flagged by Jameson on the left.
Rather than give fans a cute smile, Carey was seen playfully strangling their 10-year-old daughter. The former motocross racer made a wicked face while Jameson pretended she was dead.
P!nk, on the other hand, held Jameson, who was doing a crazy eyes pose, as she stared at her husband. The “So What” singer had an expression as though she was asking Carey, “What the hell?”
While it seems the family meant the photo to come across as funny and silly, some fans didn’t appreciate the humor and blasted the parents.
Some Fans Don’t Like The Harts’ Family Picture
In the comments section, netizens expressed their distaste for the theme of the image. One user wrote, “Even pretending to strangle/choke someone is never funny,” while another lashed, “Playful???? Not appropriate.”

A fan asked if the photo was meant to be “funny,” while a second fan described the picture as “frightening.” This user who seemed to be a fan of the Harts wrote, “Love this family but I don’t think this is cute” while another noted that the “playful” image portrayed a different meaning. The angry fan ranted:
What the actual F? This is disturbing, not playful. And it’s making light of domestic abuse. This makes me super uncomfortable.
However, not all fans believed the photo was offensive and praised P!nk and Carey for thinking outside the box. One user gushed, “This is the best ❤️” while another warned, “This is great, all you haters get a life…..they are having fun and they are happy which clearly you are not if your trying to make them feel bad.”
A Surgery-Filled Year
2021 has been quite the year for the “Just Give Me A Reason” singer and her husband as they had a couple of health battles that resulted in surgeries.

As The Blast reported, back in September, Carey had to undergo back surgery after an injury. The motorcycle racer had to have a lower spine disc replacement and gave fans a glimpse into his recovery via social media.
About two months later, P!nk underwent hip surgery and got candid about how difficult recovery was on her body. She noted she suffered depression but had the help of Carey through it all.
