Charli XCX has responded on Twitter to Dutch radio DJ Giel Beelen, who asked her if she was “fingering [her]self” live on air.
Posting on her account, XCX wrote “just got asked if I was fingering myself on the radio. s/o sexism. It’s the best”.

The incident happened live on Dutch station 3FM when Beelen asked the singer to participate in a contest to say “good morning” in the “most sensual way”. During this, the DJ then asked XCX if she had her “hands on [her] body”. When the singer replied that her hands were behind her back, Beelen then stated, “Oh, I thought you were fingering yourself or something.”
Beelen later responded to Charli XCX’s tweet, quoting the singer’s Icona Pop co-write ‘I Don’t Care (I Love It)’.
I don't care, i love it 😉 thx was fun! RT @charli_xcx: just got asked if I was fingering myself on the radio. s/o sexism. it's the best.
