Pink has criticized an internet troll who compared her to Suzy Eddie Izzard as a "hateful" way of wishing her a happy birthday.

As it was the 'So What?" hitmaker's birthday on September 8, one user on X (formerly known as Twitter) sent her a message that read: "Happy Birthday Pink," alongside a photo of Izzard.

The 44-year-old singer - whose real name is Alecia Beth Moore Hart - used the attempted insult against her, in which a user compared her to the genderfluid comedian and political activist, as a way to teach her daughter Willow about online hate.

"Thank you so much," Pink wrote in the accompanying caption. "I just showed my 12-year-old daughter your post."

The 'Just Give Me A Reason' vocalist went on to explain that she has "never met" the anonymous user and has "no idea why [they] would go out of your way to be hateful".

She added that their post taught a "good lesson in ignorance" for her child, Willow Sage Hart, and concluded with: "Thank you. I still don’t know you. Congrats. You’re no one."

Check out the tweet: 

Pink didn't back down on her response as in a follow-up post, she called the troll a "nameless f**ko" and said there are legitimate photographs of her on Google that are "worse than [the] picture" of the 61-year-old activist.

The 'Trustfall' singer then told OP to "be creative next time," before elaborating on the reason behind her response in another post.

"I post these things to show the kids I know - my own kids as well, that we are all occasionally treated badly," she penned. "I show them because they know me, and they know that my self-esteem does not rely on the opinions of others."

Many of Pink's fans took to the comment section to praise her for calling out the transphobic troll. One user said: "You got to teach the kids right, I respect that."

Another chimed in: "Pink, you are slayer! I would not write it better," and a third added: "Thank you for calling out this behavior!!"

The 'F**kin Perfect' musician has been married to racer Carey Hart, 48, since 2006 and they share daughter Willow, and son Jameson, six, together.

Pink is known for her relentless support for the LGBTQ+ community, showcasing her allyship in a 2012 interview with Advocate where she stated that visibility for queer youth is necessary.

"I think it’s totally important," she told the publication. "I don’t think every celebrity needs to have [a cause], I just think it’s great when they do."

The star said when she first moved to Los Angeles she was an "honorary lesbian," explaining: "I wasn’t gay, but all my girlfriends were. It wasn’t a big deal for me, but when [a tabloid] comes out and says, I just said I was bisexual, it's like: 'What? That wasn’t my truth, and I like truth. I like absolute truth.'"

In other news, Pink also destroyed an internet troll who said she "looks so old she should be named Purple".
