HALSEY Dispels Rumors That She Was Arrested After Joining #BlackLivesMatter Protest In L.A.
Halsey took to Twitter to set the record straight, following rumors that she was arrested after joining the #BlackLivesMatter protest in Los Angeles.
The 25-year old Manic singer assured fans that she was safe, but shared the harrowing experience of her fellow protesters. "I WAS NOT ARRESTED. Im safe. There were ppl I had to get to safety as many of them have VISAs. Myself + many of my peers were shot, gassed + antagonized. The frontline was calm + did not provoke," Halsey tweeted.
