Lauren Jauregui isn't too pleased about the outcome of the presidential election. The Fifth Harmony singer wrote an open letter on Billboard.com to President-elect Donald Trump’s supporters Friday that didn’t exactly mince words. The takeaway: The Miami singer, who attended Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart, is fighting mad.

The “Worth It” crooner also came out in the letter: “I am a bisexual Cuban-American woman and I am so proud of it. I am proud to be part of a community that only projects love and education and the support of one another. I am proud to be the granddaughter and daughter of immigrants who were brave enough to leave their homes and come to a whole new world with a different language and culture and immerse themselves fearlessly to start a better life for themselves and their families. I am proud to be a woman.”

Jauregui was recently pictured on social media kissing a young woman named Lucy Vives at a wedding in New Orleans; Lucy is the daughter of Colombian crooner Carlos Vives. It is unclear if the two are currently a couple.
