On Friday (September 20) millions of people around the world took to the streets to demand politicians take global warming seriously as part of the international Climate Strike protest. Billie Eilish added her voice to the movement by urging her fans to "speak up" about the climate crisis in a powerful Instagram post.
"TICK TOCK! our time is running out. the climate crisis is very real. we need to speak up and demand that our leaders take action," she wrote alongside a boomerang showing off an outfit with the words "TICK TOCK" emblazoned all over it.
The 17-year-old star has become quite outspoken about politics. Last weekend she announced she'd be donating part of her Music Midtown proceeds to Planned Parenthood after Georgia passed a strict abortion law earlier this year. She, along with a large list of prominent artists, also participated in the reproductive rights organization's #BansOffMyBody campaign.
