P!nk is slamming the uniform restrictions of The European Handball Federation. The “So What” singer took to Twitter to show her support for the Norwegian Women’s Beach Handball Team after they were fined for wearing shorts and not the required bikini bottoms during the recent European Beach Handball Championships in Bulgaria. “I’m VERY proud of the Norwegian female beach handball team FOR PROTESTING THE VERY SEXIST RULES ABOUT THEIR “uniform”. The European handball federation SHOULD BE FINED FOR SEXISM. Good on ya, ladies. I’ll be happy to pay your fines for you. Keep it up,” P!nk said. The team was fined 1,500 euro, 150 euro per player for wearing shorts that were not in accordance with the Athlete Uniform Regulations, according to a statement from the European Handball Federation. The rules will reportedly be subject to change and dealt with during the first meeting of the newly elected Beach Handball Commission in August the EHF said.
