Taylor Swift was neutral on social media during the 2016 presidential election while her pop peers like Beyoncé, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry stumped for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, many pundits criticized her silence, and some even accused her of being a Trump supporter or alt-right movement poster-girl.
But an incendiary new tweet from Swift, who has become more politically vocal over the past two years, has just made it extremely clear to her 86 million Twitter followers where she stands regarding the upcoming Donald Trump/Joe Biden election.
“After stoking the fires of white supremacy and racism your entire presidency, you have the nerve to feign moral superiority before threatening violence? ‘When the looting starts the shooting starts’??? We will vote you out in November. @realdonaldtrump,” the pop star posted Friday morning.
Swift was reacting to President Trump’s series of Twitter posts Thursday evening during the protests in Minneapolis over the death of George Floyd — a 46-year-old black man who died on May 25 after white police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck for at least seven minutes while he was handcuffed and lying face-down on the road
