When Halsey shared a picture of herself in São Paulo, Brazil captioning in “peak bi gurl evolution” she probably didn’t expect she would have to explain herself.
Many praised the singer, 24, for her support of the LGBTQ community with the rainbow flag but one user commented, “rainbow is the new marketing strategy.”
The Grammy singer, who identifies as bisexual, wasn’t going to let this stand.
“There’s been a flag in my show for 5 years,” she responded. “You’re just not paying attention you whiny little baby.”
Luckily, most of the “11 Minutes” singer’s fans jumped at her defence. “You’re a part of the community how is that strategy. Have they not heard some of your songs like wtf,” wrote one person.
“Baby girlll this is a troll because real Halsey fans know you’re a bi goddess,” added another.
Halsey was also in Brazil for her performance of “Nightmare” at the MTV MIAW.
She has been on the defence a lot as of late, including defending Taylor Swift after she learned that Scooter Braun would own her entire music catalogue.
“It turns my guts that no matter how much power or success a woman has in this life, you are still susceptible to someone coming along and making you feel powerless out of spite,” she wrote. “The way writers are treated. How as an entertainer you are respected but as a writer you’re walked all over. Even when you are both in one single body. I am standing with her.”
