Becky Hill Fires Back At Sexist Trolls Who Criticised Her Euro 2022 Outfit

Pop star Becky Hill has fired back at social media trolls who criticised the outfit she fashioned for her performance at the Euro 2022 final.

The 28-year-old took to the stage in the middle of Wembley Stadium before the Lionesses kicked off against Germany, and went on to secure major trophy success.

It was a history-making day for women, with the 87,192 fans inside the stadium making for the highest official attendance of any Euros final ever - men’s or women’s.

Despite the groundbreaking achievement, some sexist trolls still managed to be out in force online, taking aim at Becky Hill’s outfit.

The singer looked like a pop icon in her silver leotard as she sang out bangers.

However, she had to later take to Twitter to defend her outfit and advocate for body confidence in inspiring fashion.

She tweeted: “Be proud of your bodies! Celebrate yourselves! Show off your curves!

"Cover up for no one and be confident! Took me a long time to learn that and I wish I had role models like that growing up!

"Thanks for having me today Lionesses, you’re doing us proud."

She later replied to a troll: “Have your opinion but keep it to yourself.

"A troll is someone who gives their unwanted opinion when I didn’t ask.

"I wanted to wear a popstar sequin corset, sparkly tights and platform boots because that’s what I love wearing. Get out my a** ffs."

What a legendary response from the former The Voice UK contestant.

While it’s disappointing that Becky has had to cop the abuse and defend herself in the first place, the singer has been in fine form hitting back at those making the sexist remarks.

Responding to another comment, she said: “I'm also sorry you think that what I was wearing devalued my talent and wanted me to be more covered up to be a role model for body confidence to young women. As you can read, that is an oxymoron.”

Becky Hill’s classic performance was in parallel to that of the Lionesses, doing all of the United Kingdom proud.

It was Chloe Kelly who emerged as the hero for the Lionesses, bagging the winner in extra time to hand her nation a 2-1 victory over the old nemesis Germany.

The 110th-minute goal was the first of the Manchester City forward's international career – and it couldn't have come at a better time.

The effort helped England women, a team that has captured the hearts of the nation over the past fortnight, secure their first major piece of major silverware.
