Halsey has taken to Instagram to give kudos to her younger brother, Sevian Frangipane, and the action he’s taken to fight for social justice.
Halsey posted a photo of herself posing next to Sevian, and writes, “just want to take a minute to say how proud I am of my little brother @sevianfrangipane for finding his voice and being out protesting every single day. keep your family close right now if you’re lucky enough to have them to rely on.”
The singer, who is bi-racial, continues, “if you are NON-BLACK and: married to a black person, the parent of a black child, or the child of a black parent, or any other interfamilial relationship with a black person, then this is a time to let them talk when they feel like talking.”
Following the death of George Floyd, Halsey has been using her platform to call for racial justice. In addition to providing resources to get involved on her social media, she has also been walking in several Black Lives Matter protests to help bring awareness to the cause.
On June 1st, she opened up about her experience participating in a protest in Santa Monica, California, where she was photographed giving medical aid to fellow protesters who had been injured.
“do not underplay these rubber bullets bc you have been told they are ‘not lethal,'” she wrote on Instagram. “I had to bandage a man who looked like his entire face had exploded today. So before you say, from the comfort of your home, that we’re exaggerating, please consider the injuries some have suffered.”
She also shared a list of essential items that protesters should bring with them, noting that they should come equipped with “alcohol, disinfectant, gauze for excessive bleeding, non stick gauze pads and medical tape, eye pads, butterfly bandages, cold packs, Neosporin, bandage scissors, tweezers and ace bandages.”
