Taylor Swift’s #WomensMarch Support Has Sparked Backlash for *This* Specific Reason
The Women’s March is officially the largest inaugural protest EVER, with an estimated 4.6 million protestors showing up in the US alone (and there were plenty of other protestors around the world). Among the numbers were some of your fave celebs, including Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry and, natch, Hillary Clinton. But one celeb who WASN’T there was Taylor Swift, and although she sent her support, her effort (or lack thereof) has sparked some major backlash.
While it’s understandable that not everyone was able to make it to the marches, including plenty of celebs who may have had unbreakable work commitments, (like Halle Berry and Kendall Jenner, just to name a few), folks simply weren’t willing to let Tay off that easy.
The ugliness started when Taylor took to Twitter to say, “So much love, pride, and respect for those who marched. I’m proud to be a woman today, and every day. #WomensMarch” While that seems like a perfectly lovely statement of solidarity, plenty of people weren’t impressed. At all.
And they couldn’t help but notice that her notorious #girlsquad was also nowhere to be seen.
