Olivia Rodrigo Pans Abortion Ruling, Brings Out Lily Allen To Sing ‘F––k You’ To Supreme Court At Glastonbury
During her performance at the Glastonbury Festival in the U.K. this weekend, pop singer Olivia Rodrigo said she was “devastated” over the Supreme Court’s 6-3 decision to overturn Roe V. Wade on Friday.
“So many women and so many girls are going to die because of this,” Rodrigo told the crowd and said the Justices who voted to dismantle Roe “don’t give a s––t about freedom.”
The “good 4 u” singer was joined by English singer Lily Allen, and dedicated a performance of her 2009 single “F––k You,” to the conservative justices.
Rodrigo has been outspoken against the decision since it first leaked this year, saying in a concert last month, “I hope we can use our voices to protect our rights to have a safe abortion, which is a right so many people before us have worked so hard to get.”
