Venting

Ok, so my new favorite singer is Halsey.  She happens to be biracial, but extremely white-passing.  She wears wigs all the time… mostly a blue one bc that’s her trademark look.  She also sometimes does the relaxer/perm thing and can flat iron her hair out (I apologize, I don’t know what goes into doing this, so I’m guessing from what one of my friend’s does) and dyes that.  This is her:

So, yeah, people would just assume she’s white, and apparently some of her fans have no fucking clue that she’s biracial.  I mean, you love a singer, follw her on instagram and twitter and don’t know one of the most important things in her life (she’s very vocal about it bc she never felt like she “fit” anywhere).  So here’s a pic she posted on her instagram last night:

Then Halsey’s twitter blew the fuck up.  People saying that this looks like a wig.  People who insisted that Halsey was white.  A few that said white girls can have curls too.  Various racial slurs.  Outright verbal fights.  Absolute ridiculousness.  Here’s what Halsey had to say:

“i can’t believe I spent a whole damn year growing out my curls under those wigs for y’all to say my natural hair looks like a wig… some fucked up shit lmao.”

Obviously, she’s trying to play it off bc, well, PR and being famous royally sucks sometimes.  In another tweet she said she couldn’t believe there was a race war going on on her twitter.

Now, I’m not black, biracial, or anything like that.  But this is people being trash.  Extreme trash.  I don’t even know how it would affect a PoC, but the fact that it’s pissing me off this much, well…

screams

vent over.
