Halsey Voiced Their Opinion On The Overturning Of Roe V. Wade At A Concert And Some Fans Weren't Feeling It

"The 'people pay to see you sing not hear your views' argument is so dumb."

Halsey was in the middle of their Love and Power world tour when the decision to overturn Roe v. Wade was made, but she wasted no time letting fans know how she felt about it.

Halsey, along with other celebrities, went straight to Twitter to voice their frustration. This isn't Halsey's first time speaking out about reproductive rights, but this change left them feeling "defeated."

I know some of you look to my page for information or guidance but I need a little bit of time to speak to some people with more authority and experience than me and gather my thoughts. I don’t want to just contribute to antagonistic noise. I’m just defeated at the moment.

Halsey continued to spread awareness by sharing informative graphics during shows. One image read, "This catastrophic attack on bodily autonomy will only encourage more dangerous legislation, impacting vulnerable communities the most."

During a stop in Phoenix, Halsey encouraged fans in the audience to support those in need. "If you don't like it, I don't know why you came to a Halsey concert. I've never been shy. This is how I feel."

She went on to do a call-and-response chant with the audience, saying, "My body, my choice."

Concertgoer @MariaRawrz actually noticed people walking out of the concert because of Halsey's message. And when the "Nightmare" singer found out, she wasn't too bothered.

Halsey refused to apologize for expressing themselves, especially at their very own concert.

The “people pay to see you sing not hear your views” argument is so dumb. No, you paid to see me use a stage as a form of expression in the manner that I choose. Sorry you lack the critical thinking to realize that the rhetorical power of music doesn’t always serve your escapism.

She added that she's proud of the audience she's generated throughout the years, and that she's created a space where emotion and action meet.

"And expect me to always tell the truth when I get up there," Halsey concluded. "Show must go on."
