Do not mess with Halsey and her pretty natural hair or she will come out swinging.
This week, the singer who is biracial, (her mother is white, and her father is black), took to social media where she shared a cute picture of herself in a white bathrobe.
While Hasley is very open about her love of colorful wigs, this time around, she opted to reveal her natural hair — a pretty curly afro.
Many said she was not black, others claimed she was wearing a wig.
Halsey hit back with this epic clap-back: “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.”
One person revealed: “How about we say singer Halsey shows off her natural curls…shes an individual not an item. ‘black genetically’ doesn’t exist. Black is a race. Race means appearance. You shouldn’t have to look through someone’s family tree to see what race they are. Ya’ll here saying she’s white because she’s only a quarter black are the same bastards that get offended when others don’t care about the fact you’re 20% Irish, 20% Scottish, 50% German, 10% sour goddamn cream. You want to be able to identify by your ethnicity, then let her. Dumbasses.”
A hater wrote: “That does look like a wig tho, but it’s still cute asf. Her father is half white half black. HE’S biracial. She’s white. Just like how Obama is biracial, but his daughters are black. Try again.”
Another commenter shared: “Many of them do claim black only. That is the denial of their other side. They don’t claim ‘white ‘ because they can’t. White people would laugh them out the door and tell them you need two white parents to be white, the same way you need 2 Korean parents to be Korean. They are mixed which is different than being either one or the other. I feel it…coworkers and customers keep asking me if my natural hair is fake like the braids I just had in. She is biracial; it’s her hair let her be great.”
Halsey is a tough cookie.
