Halsey has been very vocal about her experiences participating in Black Lives Matter protests after the death of George Floyd. Now fans are highlighting the singer for taking the time to help others while marching in these protests.

One fan thanked Halsey on Twitter after pictures of her helping those who have been hurt in the protests were posted online.

"Thank you for giving a sh*t and putting your life at risk as you go to those front lines, protest for justice and treat the wounds of many even tho no one f*cking asked you to. That makes you a hero. And I wish those with a platform would do f*ckn [sp] more."

Another fan also thanked her for helping out a friend, who was at the protest.

"My friend Kerry got hit with a rubber bullet (she’s ok) and i swear to f*cking god @halsey came out of nowhere and gave her an ice pack. Real talk @DonsLens send our love," they wrote.

"Kerry is a f*ckin bad a*s she was so calm. Send my love right back. Bad. A*s," Halsey replied.

Yungblud was also seen by Halsey's side as the two continued to help injured protestors.

Halsey noted in her tweets that a lot of people that she was protesting with needed medical attention due to the police firing rubber bullets at them and setting off tear gas.

"Do not underplay these rubber bullets bc you have been told they are 'not lethal.' I had to bandage a man who looked like his entire face had exploded today. So before you say, from the comfort of your home, that we’re exaggerating, please consider the injuries some have suffered."

"I don't know how to articulate the horrors of today. NG [National Guard] + officers firing rounds into kneeling crowds," she wrote. "We don't have enough medics on the ground on our side. I was treating injuries I am not qualified to. So much blood spilled. If you have med training pls go + standby outskirts."

"And if you’re a white ally who is gonna stand and shout and antagonize the officers and NG and then hide behind black bodies when the shots start firing, f*ck you. You couldn't understand a shred of the bravery of the black folks at the front line. Thank you to everyone who stayed," she continued. "And a big personal thank you to @yungblud who literally ran exposed in front of rounds being shot to drag wounded people to safety without even thinking twice.




She also asked people to start bringing medical supplies to protests to help out people who are injured.
