The 'Funhouse' singer says the Internet has created "monsters" who hide behind their keyboards.
Pink has confessed that she received numerous death threats from Chris Brown fans after she criticised his performance at the Billboard Music Awards earlier this year.
The 'So What' singer took to her Twitter account at the time to question the R&B star's lack of live vocals.
"One day if I lipsync, I hope I do it as well as him," she tweeted.
Speaking to News.com.au, she professed: "The internet has created monsters."
The American star continued: "People that wouldn't have the balls to say anything in person but they get a keyboard under their fingers and, well, there's that saying, 'Anonymity is a shield from the tyranny of the majority'."
She admitted that the remark was made in a light-hearted fashion and said the social media site can bring out the worst side in people.
"There are so many haters in the world, so many miserable people. It was a joke," she added. "It wasn't even meant like, 'I hate Chris Brown'.
"Twitter brings out the best and worst in people - myself included."
Pink also revealed some of the comments she was faced with from fans.
"With the Chris Brown thing I got death threats for days. My favourite was, 'I will snatch you within an inch of your life'. I don't know how that works exactly, but whatever you want."
Meanwhile, the singer will release her new single 'Blow Me (One Last Kiss)' this weekend as she aims to beat the likes of The Script, Ne-Yo and Cheryl Cole.
