Singer Pink, born Alecia Beth Moore, just said how she felt about people who supported the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. The artist is a mother of two and married her husband, Carey Hart, 16 years ago.
Many celebrities have come out to openly oppose the anti-abortion ruling, some even donating to Planned Parenthood and other ways to aid the cause. Artists like Lizzo, Olivia Rodrigo, Billie Eilish, Phoebe Bridgers, Taylor Swift, and several others spoke out.
In a candid tweet, Pink asked her fans who supported the unpopular ruling to stop listening to her music immediately. She took the comment further by asking them to “f–k right off.” The artist also assured a fan that she was her own agent and stood by her statement.
Pink’s Comment To Anti-Abortion Fans
Pink recently joined the growing list of celebrities to express her feelings concerning the US Supreme Court’s recent ruling, which overturned Roe v. Wade. The 1973 landmark court case previously provided protection for pregnant women who wanted abortions in the United States.
Let’s be clear: if you believe the government belongs in a woman’s uterus, a gay persons business or marriage, or that racism is okay- THEN PLEASE IN THE NAME OF YOUR LORD NEVER FUCKING LISTEN TO MY MUSIC AGAIN. AND ALSO FUCK RIGHT OFF. We good?

Pink sent a message to her 31.5 million followers via her Twitter page, asking those who supported the ruling to stop listening to her music. She wrote, “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. AND ALSO F–K RIGHT OFF. We good?”
The provocative statement had several replies, some commending the 42-year-old for her support while others condemned her choice of words. One person said they hoped her agent “survived the stroke,” to which the artist replied, “I am my agent. We’re fine.”
Pink Commended Olivia Rodrigo And Lily Allen
Besides her warning to her anti-abortion fans, Pink also commended artists like Olivia Rodrigo and Lily Allen. The “Just Give Me a Reason” artist quoted a tweet talking about their feat and wrote, “Thank you, Olivia and Lily.”

The duo recently performed a duet of Allen’s 2009 hit single, “F–k You,” in defiance during the Glastonbury music festival. While on stage, Rodrigo talked about the case and how much she opposed the decision. She then revealed that the next song with Allen, titled “F–k You,” would be dedicated to the panel members.
The “Driver’s License” artist said, “This song goes out to the justices Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Amy Conry Barrett, and Brett Kavanaugh. We hate you.”
Pink Supported A Norwegian Female Sports Team
Pink is certainly known for speaking out concerning issues she disagreed with. The 42-year-old previously addressed a case concerning a Norwegian female beach handball team protesting against their uniforms.
The team refused to wear the required bikini bottoms they were told to wear during games. This action by the 10-member team incurred penalty fines, all of which Pink volunteered to pay and then congratulated them for their bravery.
“I’m VERY proud of the Norwegian female beach handball team FOR PROTESTING THE VERY SEXIST RULES ABOUT THEIR ‘uniform,'” the artist wrote. “The European handball federation SHOULD BE FINED FOR SEXISM. Good on ya, ladies. I’ll be happy to pay your fines for you. Keep it up.”
Celebrities That Opposed The Ruling
A number of famous people have openly talked about the anti-abortion ruling and their stance on it. People like Taylor Swift, Phoebe Bridgers, Billie Eilish, and several others all spoke out. Bridgers and Eilish commented on the situation during the Glastonbury music festival along with Rodrigo.
Swift, on her part, replied to Michelle Obama‘s Twitter post, revealing that the decision “terrified” her and stripped women of their rights. “I’m absolutely terrified that this is where we are, that after so many decades of people fighting for women’s rights to their own bodies, today’s decision has stripped us of that.”
Lizzo also openly opposed the ruling and took her complaint further by pledging $500,000 from the proceedings of her upcoming tour for “Special” to Planned Parenthood. She also revealed that Live Nation would increase the donation to $1 million.
