Taylor Swift, an avowed feminist, tweeted her support for the Women’s Marches around the world Saturday but angered some fans and followers who thought she should have been there.
Many fans commented with praise for Swift’s tweet, but others called her out her for being an “opportunist” and for not attending the march like so many other celebrities did, The Washington Post reported.
Swift never said publicly who she voted for, either before or after the election. She considers voting a private matter, the Post noted, and simply encourages others to vote without specifying her preferred party or candidate.
Although Swift did not attend the Women's March, she considers herself a feminist and supports the issues promoted in the marches.
Many of the more than 4,000 comments on her tweet asked why she didn’t use her influence to speak up for women, or during the election.
Others defended her right not to speak politically.
