P! Nk and her husband Carey Hart received great heat from concerned fans after a poorly received family vacation photo that was supposed to be hilarious.
The couple, who share two children, daughter Willow and son Jameson, decided to do something unusual and eccentric for their vacation family card, but many didn’t go down well.
P! Nk and Carey Hart’s vacation photo
Over the holidays, P! Nk and Carey joined the usual trend of posting heartwarming family photos to celebrate Christmas. However, as mentioned earlier, the lovebirds and their two children decided to do something extraordinary.
The lovely family of four posed outdoors in casual outfits and assumed a controversial pose. The clan stood in a row, with Carey standing to the far right of Willow while P! Nk was tagged to the left by Jameson.
Instead of giving fans a cute smile, Carey was seen playfully strangling her 10-year-old daughter. The former motocross racer looked angry while Jameson pretended she was dead.
P! Nk, on the other hand, held Jameson, who was doing a crazy eye pose while she stared at her husband. The “So What” singer had an expression on her face like asking Carey, “What the hell?”
While it seems the family wanted the photo to come across as funny and silly, some fans didn’t appreciate the humor and beat up the parents.
Some fans don’t like the Harts family picture
In the comment area, internet users expressed their dislike of the subject of the picture. One user wrote: “Even pretending to strangle someone is never funny” while another whipped: “Playful ???? Not appropriate.”
One fan asked if the photo should be “funny”, while a second fan described the picture as “terrifying”. This user, who appeared to be a fan of the Harts, wrote, “I love this family, but I don’t think that’s cute,” while another noted that the “playful” image had a different meaning. The angry fan scolded:
What is the real F? It’s annoying, not playful. And it makes domestic violence lightly. This is super uncomfortable for me.
However, not all fans thought 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 haters get a life … they have fun and are happy, which you clearly are not if you try to give them a bad one To make conscience. “
A year of surgery
2021 was quite a year for Just Give Me A Reason singer and her husband as they had some health struggles that resulted in surgery.
As reported by The Blast, Carey had to operate on his back in September after an injury. The motorcycle racer had to have a lower disc replacement and gave fans a glimpse of his recovery on social media.
About two months later, P! Nk had hip surgery and spoke openly about how difficult it was for her body to recover. She realized she was suffering from depression, but Carey had helped with it.
