Glastonbury Crowd Belt Out ‘F*ck You’ Over Supreme Court Abortion Ruling

Glastonbury Crowd Belt Out ‘F*ck You’ Over Supreme Court Abortion Ruling

Olivia Rodrigo brought out Lily Allen for her set at Glastonbury 2022, where the pair got the crowd chanting 'f**k you' over the US Supreme Court abortion ruling.

The 19-year-old singer headed over to the UK for her performance at the Somerset festival this evening (25 June).

Here she surprised the crowd by getting the 37-year-old pop star onto the stage, something she described as a 'dream come true'.

Rodrigo said she was 'heartbroken' over the Supreme Court's decision to overturn the Roe v Wade law that granted millions of women the legal right to abortion.

As such, she thought Allen's track 'F**k You' would be the perfect song to dedicate to the decision-makers.

The singer said: “Today is a very special day because it’s actually my first Glastonbury and I’m sharing the stage with Lily, which is the biggest dream come true.

“But I’m also equally as heartbroken over what happened in America yesterday. The Supreme Court decided to overturn Roe v Wade, which is a law that ensures a woman’s right to receive abortion and other basic human rights.

“I’m devastated and terrified, so many women and so many girls are going to die because of this.

“I wanted to dedicate this next song to five members of the Supreme Court who have shown us that at the end of the day they truly don’t give a s**t about freedom.”

As is shown in the clip above, fans were fully on board with the statement, shouting 'f**k you' alongside the stars as they belted out the song.

Roe v Wade, which was established in 1973, legalised abortion nationwide up to the point of foetal viability, which is generally accepted to be around 24 weeks into pregnancy.

The court ruled in favour of the state by a majority vote of six to three, in turn making it so individual states across North America will now be able to introduce bans on the procedure.

Rodrigo's comment on the situation wasn't the only political moment to have unfolded at Glastonbury.
