Halsey Administers First Aid To Protesters During Her Third Day Of Marching

Halsey was among the many people who took to the streets on Saturday as widespread protests erupted throughout the U.S., sparked by the death of George Floyd.

Floyd died after Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck for nearly 10 minutes while being arrested for allegedly using a counterfeit $20 bill. Chauvin was fired, and subsequently arrested and charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.

Halsey and ex Yungblud reunited to take part in the protest in Los Angeles.

She shared photos of her experience on Twitter, writing that police “fired rubber bullets at us” even though she and her fellow protesters “did not breach the line” and had their hands up.

Halsey also refuted reports that she had been arrested.

Halsey continued to protest on Sunday, sharing the “horrors.”

“I dont know how to articulate the horrors of today. NG + officers firing rounds into kneeling crowds. We dont have enough medics on the ground on our side. I was treating injuries I am not qualified to. So much blood spilled. If you have med training pls go + standby outskirts,” she wrote Sunday evening. “And if you’re a white ally who is gonna stand and shout and antagonize the officers and NG and then hide behind black bodies when the shots start firing, f**k you. You couldnt understand a shred of the bravery of the black folks at the front line. Thank you to everyone who stayed.”

“And a big personal thank you to @yungblud who literally ran exposed in front of rounds being shot to drag wounded people to safety without even thinking twice,” she continued.

“And f**king listen to the black people speaking. You are not there to speak over them. If they are venting their pain and anguish out loud do not speak over them. Allies are there to help when help is needed. Not take control of the narrative. there’s enough of that already.”

Monday counted as the third day of protests for Halsey and Yungblud.
