Phoebe Bridgers took her frustration at the Roe vs. Wade reversal across the pond to the Glastonbury Festival in England, where she led concert-goers to a chant denouncing Friday’s decision.
Shortly after the Supreme Court overturned the landmark court decision, the “Sidelines” singer said it was “super surreal and fun” to perform in front of the festival crowd, but the truth is she’s “having the s-day.”
“Who wants to say ‘F – the Supreme Court’?” she then asked the Glastonbury attendees.
After counting to three, the singer and her audience chanted, “F – the Supreme Court.” Bridgers then continued to hurl abuse at the Governing Body.
“F— that’s—. F-America…all these irrelevant old F-tries trying to tell us what to do with our F-bodies,’ she said, shaking her head. “Fit.”
It’s not the first time Bridgers has spoken out about abortion rights. When reports of a draft Supreme Court decision first surfaced in May, the singer shared on social media that she had undergone an abortion while on tour in October 2021.
“I went to Planned Parenthood and they gave me the abortion pill,” she said. “It was easy. Everyone deserves that kind of access.”
Friday’s US Supreme Court decision will remove federal protections for abortion.
The “Motion Sickness” singer is among the pop culture figures and household names to comment on the Supreme Court decision on Friday. Michelle Obama, Quinta Brunson, Patricia Arquette, Ariana DeBose and others also reacted to the verdict.
Fellow Glastonbury cast members Megan Thee Stallion and Charli XCX have also taken to social media to share the historic Supreme Court decision. On Twitter, Stallion tweeted that “the court has failed us all” and shared fundraising resources.
Charli XCX rallied her social media followers, including those not directly affected by the verdict.
“Just because you’re not an American citizen doesn’t mean tipping over Roe V Wade is none of your business. If you support women’s rights and human rights, you MUST speak up about how drastic and appalling the repeal of the constitutional right to abortion is,” she said tweeted.
