American singer Pink sharply responded to an online troll who compared her to British comedian Eddie Izzard in a “happy birthday” tweet, which included a 2022 photo of Izzard.

Eddie Izzard, known as the “Renaissance Man” of comedy and now using she/her pronouns and the name Suzy, hasn’t commented on this matter. However, Pink, never one to let the grass grow under her feet, swiftly responded:

Pink was not impressed with Twitter troll being compared to Eddie Izzard
Pink did not appreciate the comparison to Eddie Izzard.

“Thank you ever so much,” she began her scathing reply, adding, “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.”

Following the exchange, one of Pink’s fans commented that some people on social media are incredibly nasty. Echoing this sentiment, Pink opined, “the worst… Yes. Some.”

And the saga didn’t end there, oh no. Pink, in her indomitable style, added, “What these kind of people are are anonymous, lonely, and miserable.”

In another tweet, she wrote, “MOST IMPORTANTLY -what a wasted opportunity here.

She rounded off, emphasising, “There are so many pictures you could’ve chosen that were actually me that were worse than this picture, you nameless f****. At least be creative next time dum dum.”

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

“Good/bad. Whatever. I love me. Now I shall sleep really really well. Night night.”

The picture, in the contentious tweet shows Izzard beaming at the camera, donning a vibrant orange-striped ensemble. With politics in her crosshairs, the multi-talented Izzard is actively campaigning for a seat with the Labour party in Brighton Pavilion.

She made waves in 2020, embracing her “girl mode” and revealing her choice of pronouns. As the icing on the cake, in a chat with podcast host Matt Forde, Izzard declared that both “Suzy” and “Eddie” were names the public could use.

“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,” she confidently stated.
