Irish singer cancelled by record label after being mocked by drag queen for asking to not be called 'terf'

Famous Irish singer Roisin Murphy is the latest victim to be canceled by leftists after she had expressed concerns about sex changes for minors, saying that transgender youth are "vulnerable" and "little mixed up kids." She also asked to not be called a "terf." 

As a result, Murphy's record label has ceased all promotion and marketing for the singer's highly-anticipated new album called "Hit Parade" just days before its release, according to the Toronto Star.

The singer's cancellation occurred after a screenshot began to surface across the internet in which she had asked a Drag Queen to stop referring to women who speak out against the radical trans agenda as 'TERFS.'

"Please don't call me a terf, please don't keep using that word against women I beg you!" Murphy said on Facebook. "But puberty blockers ARE F-CKED, 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."



Murphy, who considers herself to be an ally of the LGBTQ community and performs at queer festivals, was accused by the same community she supports of being "transphobic."

"'You can't hide from the truth, cause the truth is all there is' - well Roisin Murphy - the truth is that you ARE expressing transphobic views here on FB with your personal account under a post about the vile transphobe Glinner," self-identified Drag Queen Joanna Cuddle said on Twitter.

"You claim to be an ally to the LGBTQ+ community and perform at queer festivals such as @homobloc - but here you are letting down your trans fans (and any trans friends you may have) by buying into "gender critical" transphobic conspiracy theories," Cuddle said.
 

Murphy, 50, wrote an apology on X, formerly known as Twitter, saying, "I have been thrown into a very public discourse in an arena I'm uncomfortable in and deeply unsuitable for. I cannot apologise enough for being the reason for this eruption of damaging and potentially dangerous social-media fire and brimstone."

"To witness the ramifications of my actions and the divisions it has caused is heartbreaking," she continued. "I've had a personal Facebook account for years. The morning I made these comments I was scrolling and I brought up a specific issue that was only broadly related to the original post. It was something that had been on my mind. I knew my friends were informed about the topic. I should've known too that I was stepping out of line. I've spent my whole life celebrating diversity and different views, but I never patronise or cynically aim my music directly at the pockets of any demographic."

"The music I make is the core of everything I do and it's ever- evolving, freewheeling and unpredictable. For those of you who are leaving me, or have already left, I understand, I really do, but please know I have loved every one of you. I have always been so proud of my audience and understood the privilege of performing for you, all through the years," she added. "I am so sorry my comments have been directly hurtful to many of you. You must have felt a huge shock, blindsided by this so abruptly. I understand fixed views are not helpful but I really hope people can understand my concern was out of love for all of us. I will now completely bow out of this conversation within the public domain... My true calling is music and music will never exclude any of us, I believe it will always be one of the greatest tools we can use to create a culture of tolerance."



Following Murphy's public apology, individuals on X encouraged the singer to stand true to her values and "never cave to the mob."

"I'm sorry you were being attacked. It’s tragic that so many women have been attacked for speaking truth and asking questions about the sexism of gender ideology. Women should feel free to advocate for our own needs and boundaries based on the immutable category of sex," wrote Women's rights activist Amy Sousa.



"You should never cave to the woke trans mob. Why would you apologize for speaking up for kids? Bad move," said political commentator and writer Oli London.



"We need as many people with a platform standing up to the sterilisation and mutilation of children and vulnerable young people as we can. Don’t let them break your spirit. You will be on the right side of history," another wrote.



On Sep. 8, Murphy's album will be released by London, United Kingdom-based independent record label Ninja Tune, but all marketing and promotion efforts will be ceased, per the Toronto Star.
