Billie Eilish has criticised the US supreme court’s decision to end the constitutional right to abortion.
The British music star reacted to the controversial ruling during her Glastonbury performance on Friday night.
The judgement is expected to deprive millions of American women of the right to legally undertake abortion.
US states are expected to develop their own laws regarding abortion.
“Today is a dark day for women in America. I’m just going to say that because I can’t bear to think about it any longer,” said Eilish who became the youngest headline act in the festival’s history.
Similarly, Phoebe Bridgers, an indie-folk star who was making her Glastonbury debut, also addressed the contentious ruling.
Bridges said it was “surreal and amazing” to be on the iconic stage, and went on to add that she was having a bad day as a result of the supreme court’s decision.
“Are there any Americans here?” the singer asked, after which she led the crowd on a chant of “f**k the supreme court”.
She described the supreme court judges as “irrelevant” and “old”, saying they lack the right to “tell us what to do with our f**king bodies”.
