Lorde has issued a statement following the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and more.

In an email to fans, the singer shared her thoughts, which was later posted to social media by a fan account.

Lorde said that she attended a Black Live Matter protest in Auckland, New Zealand but admitted that she was frustrated with “performative activism, predominately by white celebrities (like me)” on social media. While she acknowledged that it can be difficult to balance “self-serving social media displays and true action”, being an ally means “that white silence right now is more damaging than someone’s wack protest selfie.”

To end her note, Lorde said “To my black and brown listeners — I’m so sorry this is your reality, that you haven’t had a choice but to be defined by this, to give it your energy. I’m aware of that tax on you. I hope white people you know are doing what they can to ease your load. And I really, really hope systems will change to better protect you.”

Other SONiC artists like Billie Eilish, Green Day, Foo Fighters, The Beaches and more have shown their support for racial equlity on social media.
