Taylor Swift is one of, if not, the biggest names in entertainment in the world. Every song and album she puts out reaches the top of the charts, she sells out entire stadiums and has a massive, massive following on social media.
Given her status as one of the most well-known people in the world, Swift’s thoughts and opinions on subjects will have an affect on people, mainly the younger generation and those likely to be voting in 2020 for the first time.
In the last couple of years, Swift has gotten more and more vocal on political and social issues. She’s got a huge platform and following and on Friday she put it to use.
On Friday, Swift commented on President Trump’s tweet about those protesting and looting in Minnesota, in which he said “when the looting starts, the shooting starts.” In addition to this tweet not sitting well with Twitter, who flagged it as encouraging violence, Swift also didn’t appreciate the message from the former reality TV show host.
