Eleven’s flagship music TV show The Loop has copped a Twitter lashing from Pink after posting a misleading tweet about the US singing sensation.
The Loop, which is hosted by Scott Tweedie and Olivia Phyland (pictured above) posted a tweet on Monday with a still of Pink’s face looking unimpressed during Christina Aguilera’s tribute performance to Whitney Houston at the American Music Awards.
We will always love Whitney Houston but do you think @xtina deserved @Pink‘s stank face at the #AMAs?

Soon after noticing the tweet, Pink shamed The Loop to her 31.2 million followers with this:
I wish I could block you forever but I don’t know how someone help me please https://t.co/Hs9k3Y1abZ

Pink’s tweet came after she copped harsh criticism online for the very same still that The Loop shared on Twitter, to which she also responded in true Pink fashion.
Yes. THIS. Christina fucking killed it tonight for one of our favorite singers ever. This about Whitney, and I am in awe of Christina’s talent. Show the clip where I’m in tears, you negative Nancy’s https://t.co/5Lroq73xrQ

The singer then followed up with a more formal tweet:
Waking up to see a newly created riff between myself and another incredible woman, Christina, who took on an incredible feat, who I support fully, makes me so sad. You all perpetuate keeping women apart b/c you’re afraid of the power we have when we get together.

And just to show how much the Twitter shit-stirrers had created something out of nothing, CNN news anchor Juan Carlos Arciniegas shared the full video of Pink’s reaction to Aguilera’s tribute performance that the still was taken from.

A spokesman for The Loop told news.com.au it was flattered that Pink noticed the tweet.
“Everyone at The Loop is a massive fan of Pink and we had no intention of offending her.”
