LOOK: HALSEY Gets Into A Twitter Spat While Defending ARIANA GRANDE
Ariana Grande's recent stand on women objectification drew some criticism from people but the singer stood firm on her stance on the matter. The Grammy nominee had earlier said that 'women (and men) can express themselves however they'd like' but it is not an 'invitation to be disrespected'.
Among the many people who came to her defense is another outspoken artist in the music industry when it comes to gender equality. The Chainsmokers' collaborator, Halsey, defended Ariana after Canadian author and activist, Laura Southern, posted:
Halsey, who is known to be supportive women rights and advocates the fight against misogynism and bigotry, called the author out for being jealous and preaching an "unsafe rhetoric."
tfw you can't hide your jealousy towards a worldwide superstar empowering herself so you preach an unsafe rhetoric https://t.co/hpneVowelh— h (@halsey) December 30, 2016
Internalized misogyny is insane. "I hate this girl because she is 'different than me' & I'm nervous that means 'better than me' so I'm mad".— h (@halsey) December 30, 2016
Laura has since tweeted back but has not gotten any response from the singer.
"Unsafe rhetoric" the woman sings about not being able to walk cause she gets fucked so hard. God forbid someone take her word for it. https://t.co/52E3MBcVHo— Lauren Southern (@Lauren_Southern) December 30, 2016
I'm retiring from political commentary to become an illiterate snapchat thot. Way easier to say "sit down boo" than form coherent arguments.— Lauren Southern (@Lauren_Southern) December 31, 2016
