Its a topic of conversation that has transfixed our society over the past couple decades and while some believe this is a good thing and a way to create a more tolerant society, others worry about just how dangerous this have gotten and if it is being used as an excuse to censor the other side. With that being said, Taylor swift now finds herself in the cross hairs after making a claim on twitter that a lot of people did not like very much.
“I love you guys so much,” Taylor swift told her fans in a caption when posting a picture of a recent show in London, “I couldn’t have asked for a better year, all thanks to you. Thanks for all the birthday wishes. Can’t wait to see what 28 will be like. See you on tour.”
Of course most people probably see nothing wrong with that and for good reason. In fact, most people just would see it as Taylor Swift using presence on social media to get closer to her multitude of fans, but others are angry that Swift is bragging about having such a good year while her fans are stuck in the middle of a Trump presidency. What one has to do with the other is beyond comprehension and the whole thing seems to reek of overreacting on fans part.
Taylor swift is an entertainer and while she is also free to take part in politics and social issues , for people to jump on her for taking about having a great year is beyond ridiculous and just indicative of a toxic political landscape. If nothing else, this proves beyond a reasonable doubt that there is no place that is safe from the political spectrum and now more and more entertainers are forced to take sides or risk alienating fans.
