Texas native Megan Thee Stallion isn’t proud of her home state for its recent stance on abortion laws. She gave Texas a piece of her mind during her set at the Glastonbury Festival on Saturday, June 25.
“Now, y’all know it wouldn’t be me if I didn’t take a second to call out these stupid a** men,” Megan said. “I mean, God damn. What else you want? Texas really embarrassing me right now, y’all know that’s my home state.”
The rapper’s comments come after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, which made abortion a constitutional right. In Texas, the state legislature passed a trigger law that would make abortion a felony 30 days after the Supreme Court made its decision. Many independent abortion providers have already temporality ceased abortion services in Texas out of fear of prosecution.
During her set, Megan gave the thumbs down, which led the crowd to “boo” the restrictive legislation. She then said, “And I want to have it on the record that the mother-f*ucking hot girls and the hot boys do not support this bull that y’all campaigning for.”
Megan then led the crowd to chant “my body, my mother-f*ucking choice.”
She wasn’t the only artist to call out the Supreme Court during the festival. Olivia Rodrigo also used her Glastonbury set to speak out against the recent SCOTUS decision earlier on Saturday.
“I’m devastated and terrified,” Rodrigo, 19, said before performing. “So many women and so many girls are going to die because of this. 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 sh*t about freedom.”
The artist then sang “F*ck You” by Lily Allen.
