Can we ever forgive Ginger Spice?

May 31st marks one of the most tragic days in history. On that day in 1998, Ginger Spice—known by few by her true name, Geri Halliwell—announced she was lacing up her red platforms and walking out on the Spice Girls. Tears were shed, hearts were broken, and accusations were thrown: Ginger had undoubtedly caused the band to break up. Over two decades later, those scarred by the memory remain steadfast in not forgiving Ginger; others have forgiven, yes, but not forgotten. How about you?

We know that Ginger Spice had her own reasons to disband the Spice Girls. But, being that most of us were children at this time, we can’t help but harbor feelings of betrayal. The Spice Girls were everything—they taught us “girl power” way before anyone else, and also gave us unrealistic expectations about what a tour bus could look like on the inside. It wasn’t their time to break up yet, but Ginger Spice just had to ruin it.

Besides, if the main reason to break up your friends is to start a solo career, you’re not a true believer in “friendship never ends,” then, are you? Nice going, Ging’.

Okay, it’s been twenty-something years since the band broke up—it may be time to move past Ginger (still inexcusably) leaving the Spice Girls. She, too, was human. Who can blame her for the ambition pulsing beneath those bedazzled Union Jack dresses she used to wear? Besides, it’s not like the Spice Girls couldn’t have gone on for longer without her. So forgive, yes, but never forget.

Ginger Spice has also come out and apologized for what she did, so she knows she’s wrong, at least. Regardless, when the Spice Girls came on for the Olympics that one time, don’t act like absolute chills didn’t go down your spine.
