Pink Has a Message for Her Fans Who Support the Supreme Court’s Abortion Decision

Pink does not want fans who agree with the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

On June 25, a day after the Supreme Court voted 5-4 to overturn the historic 1973 ruling that established women’s constitutional right to abortion in the United States, the pop diva delivered a blistering Twitter post that quickly went viral.

“Let’s be clear: if you believe the government belongs in a woman’s uterus, a gay person’s business or marriage, or that racism is okay- THEN PLEASE IN THE NAME OF YOUR LORD NEVER F–KING LISTEN TO MY MUSIC AGAIN,” she wrote. “AND ALSO F–K RIGHT OFF. We good?”

In his concurring opinion, conservative Justice Clarence Thomas, who voted in favor of overturning Roe v. Wade, wrote that the Supreme Court should also “reconsider all of this Court’s substantive due process precedents, including Griswold, Lawrence, and Obergefell,” referring to precedents that protected personal freedoms such as the right to obtain contraception, same-sex intimacy, and gay marriage.

The court’s three liberal justices—Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan—also warned in their united dissent that eliminating the constitutional right to abortion may pave the way for the termination of other liberties, including as contraception and same-sex relationships.

Pink’s tweet, which has previously spoken out against state proposals and regulations restricting abortion access, was liked by more than 170,000 people. Others responded with retorts.

Someone wrote, “So you don’t like others telling you what to do, but you also don’t want people to listen to your music? That seems about appropriate.”

Another user stated on Twitter, “I’ll listen to your music whenever I want, regardless of how much I paid to see you in Vegas. Now go sing and dance for us for a few hours. Leave the constitution to those who know what it means. We good?”

Pink later thanked Olivia Rodrigo and Lily Allen, who performed together that day at the Glastonbury Festival in England, and dedicated the latter singer’s song “F—k You” to Clarence and the other three Supreme Court judges who voted in favor of overturning Roe v. Wade. “Thank you, Olivia and Lily,” Pink tweeted.
