Shania Twain Apologizes For Saying She Would Have Voted For Trump After Facing ‘Cancelled’ Party Backlash

Shania Twain released a statement late on Sunday apologizing for saying she would have voted for Donald Trump in the latest U.S election - and to those she may have offended with those words - in an interview she did with The Guardian and published only earlier that same day.

The CANADIAN singer said the following in the infamous interview: “I would have voted for him 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?”.

Oh, girl. Couldn’t you have simply answered “I’m Canadian and I have no business answering this question”?. But she did answer the question and her answer was so troubling. “Even though he was offensive”? Oh, so you mean it was OK to overlook Trump's “grab her by the pussy” misogynist comment?

And to have the audacity to respond YES to a Trump vote despite everything he is done against the LGBT community (i.e potentially your biggest percentage of fans) in his Administration?

Of course the #cancelled party immediately trended on Twitter. And after witnessing such backlash, Shania knew she had to do some damage control, hence making this public apology - but I personally find it totally weak!

Sorry Shania, I was this close to buying tickets to your new tour (which I was reminded it was even happening after watching the last “Rupaul’s Drag Race” episode) but now I feel glad I didn’t.
