“I’ll be happy to pay your fines for you”- American singer Pink is proud of Norwegian female beach handball team

American pop star Pink is speaking up for the Norway female beach team. She is probably not much happy by the decision made by the European handball federation. Pink seems red when the Norwegian women’s beach handball team got fined for wearing shorts instead of bikini bottoms at the European championships last week.

 Alecia Beth Moore, professionally known as Pink is an American singer and song writer. On Sunday the Grammy award winner, Pink tweeted in support of the women’s handball team and also offered to  for the fines issued on them.

 In the tweet she said, “I’m very proud of the Norwegian female beach handball team for protesting the very sexist rules about their uniform” The European handball federation should be fined for sexism. Good on ya, ladies. “I’ll be happy to pay your fines for you. Keep it up”.

The team thanked Siner Pink in an Instagram story. Earlier this week, the team also took to their Instagram to address the gratitude and overwhelming support they’ve received across the world. “We are also very proud about making a statement in the bronze final by playing in shorts instead of required bikini bottoms! We are overwhelmed by the attention and support from all over the world!” the post read, along with a series of photos of the players competing. “Thank you so much to all the people who support us and help spread the message! We really hope this will result in a change of this nonsense rule!”

The post also featured the hashtag “Let them wear shorts.”

Tennis legend Billie Jean King also spoke out in support of the Norwegian team. On Twitter, King called out the “sexualisation” of women athletes and pointed out that male handball players do not have to follow the same rules.

The disciplinary committee of the European handball federation fined the Norway beach handball team 1,500 euros (1.31 lakhs approx.) for “improper clothing”. The European federation said that it applied the sanction because the team’s shorts were “not in line with athlete uniform regulations”. Norway’s minister for culture and sports Abid Raja said, “ It’s completely ridiculous. A change of attitude is needed in the macho and conservative international world of sport”.
