During her “The Truth About Love World Tour,” Grammy Award-winning artist Pink was forced to cancel her Birmingham, England, concert stop in April due to illness. The singer responded last week to frustrated fans with an open letter and various tweets from her Twitter account.

Inaugural “American Idol” winner Kelly Clarkson stood behind the 33-year-old singer, sending out a message of solidarity on her WhoSay page.

“@pink how dare you only work 364 days this year,” Clarkson wrote. “I can't believe you got sick. That never happens to anyone ....ever. You're so lazy #nameonepersonthathasherschedule,singswhileflying,andisamom ....seriously people. Tired of seeing everyone giving her crap. We're all human. Relax.”

Pink said in a tweet that she had to cancel the show because of an ear and respiratory infection. She also detailed in her letter that she has been performing while suffering from rotavirus, which, according to Ontario’s Ministry of Health, features symptoms like fever, vomiting, watery diarrhea and abdominal pain.

However, not all fans were unhappy with the singer, as some reached out to share their words of support following the letter’s posting.

Canadians will get the chance to see Pink later this year when her “The Truth About Love World Tour” hits Vancouver, Edmonton, Saskatoon and Winnipeg in October, and Toronto (twice) and Montreal in November and December, respectively.
