Halsey Sparks Controversy After Speaking Out About Hotels Only Having “White People Shampoo”

Halsey took to Twitter to express her frustrations with the “hotel toiletry industry.” In a series of tweets on her Twitter on Thursday, the 23-year-old singer, whose father is black and mother is white, argued that the free shampoos hotels provide “entirely alienate people of color.”

Halsey says there should be more options for shampoo other than “white people shampoo.” After seeing the shampoo options at her hotel, she quickly makes her feelings known on Twitter. In her words it is “a far greater problem than shampoo.” It alienates people of colour.

The singer’s tweets have since divided the internet. Some are praising the artist for highlighting an important issue, which they say is just one example of how white privilege can permeate everyday life – leading people of color to feel excluded, inconvenienced, or neglected.
