Halsey Apologizes for Sharing Photographs of Her Consuming Dysfunction: “I had optimistic intentions”
Halsey says “sorry” after sharing a picture on Instagram showing the effects of her eating disorder.
The “Bad at Love” singer used the newly popular “Post a Photo of” prompt and asked fans what they wanted to see. When one said, “You at your lowest point,” Halsey shared a topless mirror selfie and wrote, according to Just Jared, “TW: ED, please help”. The image was later removed.
On Monday, December 28, the 26-year-old apologized on Twitter for the insensitive post.
She tweeted, “TW: Eating Disorders,” adding, “I’m very sorry I posted a photo of myself showing my struggle with ED without adequate withdrawal warning.”
The musician continued, “I was very nervous about posting it and I wasn’t thinking right. I had positive intentions. I would never want to harm anyone who shares my struggle.”
In another post, she stated that she would take time off social media to process it all. “With that said, I’ll be opting out now because this has become something I’m not emotionally ready for right now. I hope that’s okay,” Halsey wrote.
