Piper Rockelle is a 4-year-old YouTuber with over 8 million subscribers on YouTube and almost 5 million Instagram followers–and I just heard about her for the first time today. But Pink knows about Piper and wondered when parents are going to stop exploiting children. Um, probably when exploiting their children stops making a profit for them. But Piper heard about this and decided to defend herself and her family from Pink’s claims, saying she’s not an exploited child.
This all started after Piper posted bikini pictures of her in the pool on Instagram. Pink saw the post and slammed Piper’s mom for posting pictures of her 14-year-old in a bikini:
How many kids like Piper Rockelle are being exploited by their parents? And at what point do the rest of us say … “this isn’t okay for a 13 yr old to be posing in a bikini whilst her MOTHER takes the photo?!?!”

Piper piped up to TMZ about Pink giving her some free press and said that her mom is not exploiting her, her mom is just helping her make her dreams come true, okay?
“The first thing I want everyone to know is that my mom doesn’t make me do anything. Quite the opposite, I’m a kid who had a dream and my mom is amazing enough to help me live it out.”
“I don’t think P!nk has ever seen one of my YouTube videos because if she did she’d see it’s just my friends and me having fun and acting like ourselves. The content we make is the kind of stuff anyone can watch.”
Piper added that there’s nothing sexual about a teenager having fun in the pool. Piper then dragged Pink as a hypocrite because Pink got started in the music industry by joining a girl group when she was 14. And while Piper thinks there are issues with people being taken advantage of, she’s good:
“I know there are kids who are being taken advantage of and that’s a real problem, but I’m not one of them.”
Piper’s mom, Tiffany Rockelle, also said words about Pink’s diss to Today and claims she’s protecting her daughter:
“Since Piper was a child, she has had a strong love of performing and she has always had a dream. So long as Piper wants to do this and it’s her passion, I’m here for her to follow that dream and protect her.”
Piper and Tiffany also could have mentioned that Pink has been called out for posting naked pictures of her own children and that she swore she would stop posting pics of her kids back in 2019. A bit pot calling the kettle black, no? And a quick peruse of Pink’s Instagram will tell you, Pink did not stop posting pics of her children.
Pink has yet to respond to Piper and Tiffany, but if she does, she should also mention something else disturbing. And that is the fact that Tiffany lets Piper wear CROCS!
