The singer opened up about seeing "anti LGBT" material at her show and people walking out during "Strangers".
Halsey recently opened up on Twitter about people bringing anti-LGBT material to her tour.
The singer has built up much of her success by putting on great live shows for fans, but there are apparently individuals who bring "anti-LGBT religious propaganda" to her shows, according to the singer.
people bring anti-LGBT religious propaganda to my concerts a lot and it’s like, I feel like I’ve done enough good in the world that God’s gonna forgive me for eating some pussy.— h (@halsey) August 27, 2018
Halsey's response was pretty tongue-in-cheek and a hilarious way to address the anti LGBTQ+ material showing up at her concerts.
The singer didn't specify whether she was referring to fans who came to see her show wielding signs, or merely individuals who distribute pamphlets outside the venues.
After Halsey addressed the anti LGBT materials, a fan added that there were also people who left during "Strangers". "Strangers" is, of course, Halsey's collaboration with Fifth Harmony's Lauren Jauregui. Both singers publicly identify as bisexual.
I am happy when they leave. My show is a safe place. Plus they’re out numbered lol https://t.co/MneP4Klrg9— h (@halsey) August 27, 2018
"I am happy when they leave," the singer wrote, highlighting that her shows are meant to be a safe place.
Halsey has previously addressed the fans who leave during "Strangers". In October 2017, Halsey stopped a show to acknowledge a few fans who walked out during the song, telling the crowd that they'd "bought a ticket to see a queer girl who loves her queer fans very fucking much."

Halsey is well known for being open and honest about who she is as a performer and as a person. Though it is probably disheartening to see anti-LGBTQ+ material at her show, Halsey has proven that she can handle it all in stride.
