LORDE: Twitter Trending #FreeLorde

Written by on October 9, 2019

On Tuesday, the hashtag #FreeLorde was trending on Twitter.

Her seven-million followers used Lorde as an example while they protested a potential law. New Zealand lawmakers want to fine parents $3,000 if a child drops out of school. Students currently must remain through age 16.

Lorde is a high school drop-out but highly successful. Seems unfair for her folks to cough up $3,000 only because Lorde had a better option – making millions on music.

New Zealand authorities wish to throw people in jail for not paying the $3,000 fine. So hypothetically — #FreeLorde. (NewsHub, New Zealand)
