Olivia Rodrigo calls out SCOTUS justices who voted to overturn Roe v. Wade with a rendition of 'F--- You'
Pop star Olivia Rodrigo on Saturday sent a message to the Supreme Court justices responsible for overturning Roe v. Wade, calling them out during her set at the Glastonbury music festival.
Rodrigo invited her guest, British singer Lily Allen, on stage and the pair performed Allen's 2009 song, "Fuck You" — but not before Rodrigo named all five SCOTUS justices who helped gut the landmark ruling that protected abortion rights in America.
"Today is a very, very special day. This is actually my first Glastonbury," Rodrigo said. "But I'm also equally as heartbroken over what happened in America yesterday."
Rodrigo told the crowd that the SCOTUS decision infringed on a woman's ability to secure a safe abortion, which she called a basic human right.
"I'm devastated and terrified. So many women and so many girls are going to die because of this," Rodrigo said.
"I wanted to dedicate this next song to the five members of the Supreme Court who have showed us that at the end of the day, they truly don't give a shit about freedom," Rodrigo said, before naming Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Amy Coney Barrett, and Brett Kavanaugh.
"We hate you," Rodrigo said, as Allen raised her middle fingers in the air.
The two then performed Allen's song, which includes lyrics such as: "Do you, do you really enjoy living a life that's so hateful?/ 'Cause there's a hole where your soul should be/ You're losing control a bit, and it's really distasteful."
Rodrigo's actions were lauded by lawmakers like Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
"THANK YOU @oliviarodrigo and every artist, athlete, and entertainer who uses their platform to speak out in industries where there is immense pressure to say & do little bc many believe silence is more profitable," Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. "Culture matters. Moments like these make a huge, huge difference."
