P!nk has offered to pay the fines handed out to Norway women’s beach handball team for wearing shorts rather than the traditional bikini bottoms during the 2021 European Beach Handball Championships.
The European Handball Federation (EHF) slapped a fine of 1,500 euros, or $1,765 on the Norwegian team last week, saying that they competed in “improper clothing.”
Responding to the punishment, P!nk said the EHF should be fined “for sexism.”
“I’m very proud of the Norwegian female beach handball team for protesting sexist rules about their uniform,” she wrote on Twitter on Sunday.
“Good on ya, ladies. I’ll be happy to pay your fines for you. Keep it up,” the pop star added.
The Norwegian team thanked P!nk for her gesture of solidarity.
“Wow! Thank you so much for the support,” they wrote on their Instagram story.
