Halsey apologizes for sharing Instagram photo of her depicting eating disorder
Written by on December 29, 2020
Halsey had to delete a photo she posted on her Instagram stories that was triggering for some fans. When asked to share a photo of her “lowest point,” the singer shared a mirror selfie of her body from when she was struggling with an eating disorder. Followers began calling her out for not having a proper trigger warning before the photo.
Halsey wrote on Twitter, “TW: disordered eating I am very sorry for posting a photo of myself depicting my struggle with ED without a sufficient trigger warning. I was very nervous to post it and didn’t think properly. I had positive intentions. I would never want to harm someone who shares my struggle.” She said that the post was immediately taken down, and continued, “I don’t need to be yelled at in the name of being educated right now. I made an honest mistake because I was nervous to share one of the worst times of my life with tens millions of people. My desire to be confident overshadowed my knowledge of how to share triggering content.”
