Halsey lets rip at calls for ‘Straight Pride’ after horrific lesbian attack

5 / 5 stars

Halsey – Electric Ballroom, London

HALSEY let rip last night hearing about a young lesbian couple who were attacked in London after a night out.

The chart-topper, who played Capital FM’s Summertime Ball at the weekend, paused her intimate Camden gig to rage over those calling for a Straight Pride.

Speaking frankly Halsey, 24, said: “The two people on my shirt are a young couple Melania and Chris.

“A couple of nights ago around here they were assaulted because they are lesbians.

“Becuase they gave the appearance of being lesbians.”

The Without Me songstress continued: “The sad reality is that after the Pride parades are over and after the bars close their Pride night and the glitter is being swept out of the streets, a lot of people get on those trains and they get on those busses and they try and wash the rainbows off their bodies and they peel the stickers off their clothes because when Pride is over it is not safe to be gay anymore.

“The fear that someone is going to viciously assault them or viciously attack them so when the people around the world ask ‘why isn’t there a straight Pride parade?

“The answer is because if there was one you wouldn’t have to get on the bus and be terrified of getting f***ing beaten or killed afterwords.

“That is why there is not a straight Pride parade.. because every f***ing day on public transport is a straight Pride parade.”

During the gig, the American firecracker wowed fans with a seriously energetic performance.

Proving she’s more than just a voice, Halsey gave everything during her set – joking if she left with all her limbs she ‘wouldn’t have done her job properly’.

Never one to keep her opinions to herself even if it means a backlash, the kooky gal brazenly slated the Wembley crowd for being lacklustre during her Summertime Ball set.
