Halsey hits back at critics

Halsey has hit out at criticism for not "claiming her black side".

The 25-year-old singer has been taking part in protests sparked by the death of George Floyd at the hands of police, but was subjected to a backlash over the language she uses about the subject, despite being biracial.

A Twitter user wrote in a now-deleted post: "Notice how @Halsey never claims her black side, but she ‘supports.’ Stop being ignorant. She’s never claimed her Black side. This is why I will NEVER support her. On her post she says ‘let black ppl speak,’ not ‘let our ppl speak.’ Nah, f**k her (sic)"

In response, the ‘Without Me’ hitmaker explained she feels she is "white passing" and though she is "in pain", as a result she doesn’t think it is her "place" to use the word ‘we’ because she doesn’t feel in danger because of her ethnicity.

She wrote: "im white passing. it’s not my place to say ‘we.’ it’s my place to help. i am in pain for my family, but nobody is gonna kill me based on my skin color.

"’I’ve always been proud of who I am but it’d be an absolute disservice to say ‘we’ when I’m not susceptible to the same violence.(sic)"

Halsey has previously admitted she has found it "weird" growing up with a white mother and a black father.

She said in 2017: "I look like a white girl, but I don’t feel like one. I’m a black woman. It’s been weird navigating that."

She jokingly added: "When I was growing up, I didn’t know if I was supposed to love TLC or Britney."
