‘No door to hit them on the way out’: Halsey Hits Back at Fans Who Walked Out of Her Concert After Pro-Abortion Stance

In a controversially iconic moment, Halsey boldly said to her audience, “If you don’t like it, you can go home right now — I don’t care”, to people who didn’t concur with her abortion stance. She has always been vocal about things she believes in, especially women’s rights and it was no different on June 26, at her Sunday night concert in Phoenix. The If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power artist clearly condemned the recent overturning of the almost 50-year-old Roe v. Wade case, which had originally guaranteed the federal right of women to get abortions, giving states the authority to pass their own laws regarding abortion.

Halsey performed on the Ak-Chin Pavilion stage, eventually leading the crowd to powerfully chant, “My body, my choice”. The 27-year-old singer started out by urging the fans to get politically active. She said:

“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, I don’t know why you came to a Halsey concert because I’ve never been shy that this is how I feel.”

She then roared a loud chant, shouting: “My body!” with her voice tangibly cracking with emotion. The fans responded with equal enthusiasm: “My choice!” And this phrase was chanted continuously for quite some time.

The singer even took to Twitter to take a jibe at everyone who walked out of her concert.

Halsey has always been vocal

The singer is one among many artists who have been vocal about this issue for a long time now. Back in May, when the court’s draft decision for the Roe v. Wade case was leaked, she had tweeted:

“This is one of the most significant events we will witness in our lifetimes… The effects of this decision will spiral into lethal situations for our entire country. Most seriously impacting people of color, rural areas and socioeconomically impacted communities. The time to take action is now.”

Halsey was left speechless with shock after the official news of the overturning of Roe v. Wade became public. She took to Twitter to express her grief.

Fans across Twitter are using the hashtag #LoveandPowerTour to share clips of Halsey’s iconic concert and tweets in support of her.
