Halsey has a purposeful message for fans who have left her concert

The Supreme Court decision, Roe v. Picking Wade up has everyone heated, including celebrities and musicians like Halsey, who took a moment during a concert in Arizona to deliver a heartfelt pro-choice speech. The artist’s statement apparently prompted a number of visitors to leave the concert.

“Some of the people I’m looking at right now are going to need an abortion one day, and you deserve it,” they told the audience, per Page Six. “Whether it’s a life-threatening situation or not, you deserve it. And here in Arizona, you have to promise me that you will do this work so that the person on your left and on your right has that right for the rest of his life.”

Halsey’s speech also included a message to anyone who disagreed: “If you don’t like it, you can go home now. I do not care. If you don’t like it, I don’t know why you came to a Halsey concert.” And quite a few people recorded it.

Halsey was basically saying don’t let the door hit you on the way out

Responding to a fan who tweeted, “The amount of people walking out of the Halsey concert after having a nightmare while she was talking about abortion was disgusting,” the artist had something to say. “Disadvantage of outdoor venues: No door to hit them on the way out,” Halsey quoted on Twitter, adding a hand-waving emoji to her message.

If Halsey’s statement caused controversy among her Arizona fans, it may have caused even more noise on the internet. “TELL THE QUEEN,” tweeted an agreeing fan. “Love her,” tweeted another person. Many people online wondered how Halsey’s feelings about feminism could surprise fans. “How do you go to a Halsey concert if you’re pro-life?” one asked. “Imagine buying tickets to see Halsey and being shocked to discover that she is a feminist. Have these people never heard any of their songs?” asked another person.

But of course, this is the internet, and Halsey’s tweet drew plenty of reactions from the other side of the debate as well, many of whom questioned why the singer would get political in a concert.
