Lauren Jauregui has some pointed words for Donald Trump supporters.

In an open letter to those who voted for the president-elect, the Fifth Harmony member reveals she's bisexual, lambasting those who voted for Trump for considering themselves "superior to the rest of us.”

“To every single Trump supporter trying to say that voting for Trump does not mean that you are racist, homophobic, sexist, xenophobic, assholes… that you just like the way he didn’t really care what people thought and just said whatever he wanted …,” she began in the letter posted Friday to Billboard.com. “Your words are worthless, because your actions have led to the single-handed destruction of all the progress we’ve made socially as a nation. … You are HYPOCRITES.”

Though the 20-year-old is "so proud" to be a "bisexual Cuban-American woman," Jauregui expressed appreciation for her genes -- a "lighter complexion and green eyes" -- that she says has granted her "privilege" in America.

"I am grateful and will continue to speak on behalf of the women around the world and in our very own country who do not experience a fraction of that respect because of the color of their skin or what they choose to wear, or how their hair looks, or how much makeup they have on or any other absurdity that we women are reduced to," she wrote.

Jauregui attributes her broad world views to traveling as part of Fifth Harmony. Recalling growing up Roman Catholic and attending private Catholic school, the songstress says she's "studied WAY more than most of you have studied the religion or the Bible for that matter." She called Trump supporters "selfish" and "un-CHRIST-like."

"You chose hatred," she added.

Her advice for Trump voters? "Travel and read a history book."
