Halsey gives harsh response to fans that left her concert after Roe vs. Wade speech
A video of the incident on Sunday night shows the singer pacing the stage as she addressed the crowd about the Supreme Court's decision to revoke federal abortion rights.
"Here in Arizona, you guys got to promise me that you’re gonna do that work so that the person to the left of you and to the right of you has that right for the rest of their lives. If you don’t like it, you can go home right now — I don’t care," the singer said, regarding the right to an abortion.
"If you don’t like it, I don’t know why you came to a Halsey concert, because I’ve never been shy that this is how I feel."
The pop star also led a chant of "My body, my choice," prompting a handful of fans to exit the show.
An attendee and fan commented on the incident on Twitter, calling the amount of people that left "sickening."
"FIGHT FOR WHAT IS RIGHT," the user added.
Halsey retweeted the post, including some choice words of her own: "Downside of doing outdoor venues: no door to hit them on the way out."
Halsey shares what she believes the real problem is
The same day that the Court overturned Roe v. Wade, the Nightmare singer took to Twitter to share what she believed was the real root of the issue.
"I have been advocating for abortion, reproductive rights, and bodily integrity for as long as I've had a platform and I'm running out of ways to work and frame the severity of the impact that fundamentalism has on our country," she wrote.
Halsey is current traveling the country on her Love and Power tour, and has a new single out called So Good.
