Shania Twain Backtracks & Apologizes For Saying She Would Have Voted For Trump

Shania Twain found herself in hot water after an interview with The Guardian was published of her saying she would have voted for Trump.

The Canadian born country singer said, “I would have voted for [Trump] because, even though he was offensive, he seemed honest. 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 bullshit. I would have voted for a feeling that it was transparent. And politics has a reputation of not being that, right?”

Her sentiments caused a significant backlash because a lot of her fanbase is gay. So much of Trump’s politics is attacking the LGBT+ community, so if Twain would have voted for him, that’s aligning herself with his politics.

The “Shania Twain is canceled” internet party was so intense that Twain tweeted a statement on the same day of the Trump quote going viral.

“I would like to apologize to anybody I have offended in a recent interview with the Guardian relating to the American President,” she tweeted. “The question caught me off guard. As a Canadian, I regret answering this unexpected question without giving my response more context.”

“I am passionately against discrimination of any kind and hope it’s clear from the choices I have made, and the people I stand with, that I do not hold any common moral beliefs with the current President,” she continued.

“I was trying to explain, in response to a question about the election, that my limited understanding was that the President talked to a portion of America like an accessible person they could relate to, as he was NOT a politician.”

“My answer was awkward, but certainly should not be taken as representative of my values nor does it mean I endorse him. I make music to bring people together. My path will always be one of inclusivity, as my history shows,” Twain concluded.

It took four tweets for Twain to backtrack on her Trump statement. What are your feelings on Twain’s Trump comment?
