Halsey has been vocal about claiming her bi-racial ethnicity but some of her fans and more than few haters seems to have a hard time grasping the fact that she’s a proud Black woman.

The singer recently shared a snapshot of her natural curls on social media and it wasn’t long before haters started slamming the star and accusing her of wearing a bad wig.

“New growth, new growth; all these fades I outgrew,” she captioned the bathroom selfie.

She also revealed that she had been working hard to grow out her hair under actual wigs.

Instead of applauding the star’s natural locks, haters criticized her look and she didn’t take the hate lying down.

Singer Halsey opens up about being a ‘white-passing’ black woman

“i can’t believe I spent a whole damn year growing out my curls under those wigs for y’all to say my natural hair looks like a wig… some fucked up shit lmao,” she posted.

“I’m white-passing. I’ve accepted that about myself and have never tried to control anything about black culture that’s not mine,” the singer said in an interview with Playboy last year. “I look like a white girl, but I don’t feel like one. I’m a black woman.”

Halsey was born to a white mother and Black father and has said she is “proud to be in a biracial family, I’m proud of who I am, and I’m proud of my hair.”

This isn’t the first time she has spoken out about her hair. In April, she took to social media to blast hotels for only providing “white people shampoo.”

“I’ve been traveling for years now and it’s been so frustrating that the hotel toiletry industry entirely alienates people of color. I can’t use this perfumed watered down white people shampoo. Neither can 50% of ur customers. Annoying,” she wrote in a now-deleted tweet.
