Following her breathtaking speech at this year’s Women’s March, singer Halsey has made headlines again for expressing her beliefs.
As a frequent traveller, Halsey tweeted that hotel shampoos usually only suit fine hair, which she believes favours white people.
The singer, whose parents are of African-American, Italian and Hungarian descent, cited the limited shampoo options in hotels as an example of white privilege that alienates people of colour.
The Cambridge Dictionary defines white privilege as:
People with white skin having advantages in society that other people do not have.
Following Halsey’s tweets, users of Twitter were quick to voice their thoughts.
