P!nk Offers to Pay Norwegian Beach Handball Team's Improper Clothing Fine
Just give P!nk a reason not to call out blatant sexism. Over the weekend, the pop star tweeted her — emotional and financial — support for Norway's women's beach handball team after they were fined 1,500 euros by the European Handball Federation (EHF) for "improper clothing."

The supposed-rule violation comes for the team having worn shorts instead of bikini bottoms as they competed in their European Beach Handball Championship bronze medal match against Spain in Bulgaria last week. Shorts are "not in according to athlete uniform regulations," apparently, despite being regulation for the men's handball teams.

"I'm VERY proud of the Norwegian female beach handball team FOR PROTESTING THE VERY SEXIST RULES ABOUT THEIR 'uniform,'" P!nk tweeted. "The European handball federation SHOULD BE FINED FOR SEXISM."
 
According to the BBC, the Norwegian team thanked P!nk for her support via their Instagram story. Meanwhile the EHF decided it better do some damage control, so the organization beat the singer to the punch and donated the fine on the team's behalf.
 
 
While the team is applauding the EHF's "baby steps," the organization's attempt to save face definitely warrants P!nk's titular "So What" in response. We'll just have to wait and see if the EMF actually move to reform some of its regulations.

P!nk recently released her family-forward documentary about life on the road All I Know So Far.
