Róisín Murphy is an Irish singer, songwriter and record producer. She’s been releasing music for over 20 years and was played on the BBC’s under-fire radio station 6 Music regularly. Just a few weeks ago her songs were played six times in just one week. But, she's since been exiled from the radio and had gigs canceled after she criticized puberty blockers for “little mixed-up kids.”
Don’t forget. If you are a celebrity and go against anything the woke mob promotes, you’ll be put on the chopping block faster than you can blink!
Late last month, Murphy reportedly wrote the following on her Facebook account:
Please don’t call me a terf [trans-exclusionary radical feminist], please don’t keep using that word against women I beg you! but puberty blockers ARE F**KED, absolutely desolate, big Pharma laughing all the way to the bank. Little mixed-up kids are vulnerable and need to be protected, that’s just true.
I mean, we know she’s right. Puberty blockers do nothing but harm kids and feed their delusion and confusion. However, because she’s in the public eye, this comment came back to bite her, despite her backpedaling.
Almost immediately after posting her thoughts, Murphy caved to the woke mob in an apology on her Twitter/X account. She insisted she was “stepping out of line” with her Facebook comment and that she’d spent her “whole life celebrating diversity and different views.” Then she insisted she was going to “bow out” of the conversation and stick to music.
The BBC radio last featured Murphy on September 1, three days after she’d made her comments. Then it canceled ten hours of Murphy’s shows on the channel, according to Daily Mail, who also reported that BBC staff indicated that her comments were the reason behind her axing.
Supposedly, the BBC denied that her comments were the reason for their withdrawal from the lineup, instead insisting that artists are “regularly on rotation and frequently change to reflect station-wide initiatives as they get confirmed.”
Two of Murphy’s gigs were canceled that were originally scheduled to promote her new album, Daily Mail noted in a separate piece, and media outlets went for Murphy’s throat. Evening Standard, a UK based outlet, called Murphy “the most vilified female celebrity since J.K. Rowling,” and The Guardian called the album a “masterful album with an ugly stain.” One report indicated that Murphy’s record label even ceased promotion of the new album following her comments, and that same report insisted that proceeds from the song would be donated to trans-supporting charities.
Despite the weakened promotion of her album and numerous slurs thrown at Murphy for her comments about not wanting to chemically ruin kids' lives, “Hit Parade” topped UK albums chart and fans stood beside her. She reached her first-ever solo top 10 album with its release, according to The Pink News, and the hashtag #IStandWithRoisinMurphy trended on social media.
“How refreshing it is to see an attempted cancellation fail so spectacularly,” Pink News indicated that a supporter wrote. Another supposedly wrote, “It shows that the British public has grown thoroughly sick of cancel culture, and is determined to support its victims... being cancelled has actually made Murphy more popular than ever."
It was weak of Murphy to apologize for her comments that critiqued puberty blockers that, if you ask me, need all of the critiquing in the world. But this story points out two things. One, if you aren’t all-in on wokeness, leftist media will try their very best to squash you and cancel you. And two, the tides are turning. Murphy’s music likely did better than it would have if she hadn’t made news about her anti-puberty blocker stance, and that’s a shift that points us in the right direction.
