Billie Eilish nearly canceled her appearance at the Austin City Limits Music Festival because of the state’s stance on abortion.
In a clip posted to Twitter on Saturday (Oct. 2nd), the “Happier Than Ever” singer can be seen telling the audience, “When they made that s–t a law, I almost didn’t want to do the show. so, because I wanted to punish this f–king place for allowing that to happen here. But then I remembered that it’s you guys that are the f–king victims, and you deserve everything in the world. And we need to tell them to shut the f–k up!”
The new legislation prohibits women from getting an abortion after a fetal heartbeat can be detected and lets citizens sue doctors who help terminate pregnancies.
