Kendrick Lamar is joining the chorus of celebrity voices unhappy with Roe v. Wade being overturned Friday, only he expressed his feelings in an elaborate, blood-soaked spectacle. 

The 35-year-old rapper made his feelings known during a Glastonbury Festival appearance over the weekend. Per CNN, Lamar addressed multiple social issues during the set, including social injustice, faith, greed, loyalty, and prejudice during choreographed performances of “N95” and “United in Grief,” which both come from his new album, “Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers.” The rapper also performed crowd favorites such as “Humble” and “Alright.”

The most buzzed-about moment came at the end when Lamar sang “Savior” while wearing a diamond-encrusted crown of thorns. The song deals with the topics of COVID-19 and Black Lives Matter (BLM). 

“I wear this crown. They judge Christ. They judge you, they judge Christ,” Lamar told the cheering crowd before he began the song. As he performed “Savior,” buckets of fake blood rained down onto him and drenched his white shirt.

After the song, Lamar continued chanting, “They judge you, they judge Christ. Godspeed for women’s rights,” over and over as he left the stage. 

Lamar is one of many musical artists protesting the idea of abortion laws being decided by individual states. The Daily Wire previously reported that singer Pink told pro-life fans they were no longer welcome to listen to her music.

“Let’s be clear: if you believe the government belongs in a woman’s uterus, a gay persons business or marriage, or that racism is okay- THEN PLEASE IN THE NAME OF YOUR LORD NEVER F***ING LISTEN TO MY MUSIC AGAIN. AND ALSO F*** RIGHT OFF. We good?” she tweeted on Saturday. 

She doubled down in a follow-up tweet after many fans clapped back against her stance. 

“And to all of you sad, old white men asking me if I still make music. I realize you’re out of touch- so ask your kids…. Oh wait- you can’t. They hate you,” Pink shared.

Green Day singer Billie Joe Armstrong, known for making political statements in the press and his music, announced that he’d be renouncing his citizenship and moving to the United Kingdom because of the Dobbs decision. 

“F*** America, I’m f***ing renouncing my citizenship, I’m f***ing coming here,” Armstrong said at the beginning of the show.

“There’s too much f***ing stupid in the world to go back to that miserable f****** excuse for a country,” he continued, and he paused for a moment as the crowd cheered. “Oh, I’m not kidding, you’re going to get a lot of me in the coming days.”
