Popstar Pink said Thursday she had been called a "racist" on social media for tweeting that there was "still hope" for President Trump.
"I was reading all of the fascinating things the president is doing. All the things he has time to do. Like the NFL," Pink, whose real name is Alecia Beth Moore, told Australia's Nine Network of Trump's battle with the NFL over player protests during the national anthem.
"I just decided to go on a Twitter rant," she continued. "And I started saying that he's doing a terrible job… and a more terrible job than any other job he's been terrible at."
However, Pink, who is promoting her Beautiful Trauma World Tour, said she didn't want to end the conversation on a negative note.
"But then I decided to try and be hopeful and at least a little optimistic and I said, 'There's still hope for you -- I think you could turn it around' -- and then that was the one that actually pissed everybody off the most," the singer explained. "So that was the one where apparently now I voted for him … I'm a racist."
Pink, who has been an outspoken proponent for liberal causes since bursting onto the music scene with her 2000 debut solo album "Can't Take Me Home," took to the same social media platform to defend herself.
"I'm sorry y'all. I assumed you all knew who the fuck I am and what the fuck I stand for," Pink tweeted. "Cause I have never faltered. I have always been me."
"I think this world needs hope and love and positivity and we all need some inspiration to not be shitty all the time," she added.
