Shania Twain Shouldn’t Have to Issue a Public Apology for Pro-Trump Comments

Canadian singer Shania Twain came under fire this week after praising President Trump’s honesty and straightforward approach to politics during an interview published by The Guardian.

“I would have voted for him because, even though he was offensive, he seemed honest,” she said. “Do you want straight or polite? Not that you shouldn’t be able to have both. If I were voting, I just don’t want bulls--t. I would have voted for a feeling that it was transparent. And politics has a reputation of not being that, right?”

Twain was immediately attacked for having the audacity to say that she would have voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election.

 

 

She has since issued a four-part apology on Twitter.

The treatment of Shania Twain is unacceptable and should not be tolerated. If we want to welcome all viewpoints and #ChampionWomen, we cannot allow this kind of harassment to go unaddressed.

 

Rather than shaming a woman for merely expressing her opinion, the President’s opponents can respectfully voice their disagreements. It’s imperative that we treat all women with civility and respect, no matter what their political views are.
