Demi Lovato slams Time for Trump's Person of the Year nod

Demi Lovato slams Time for Trump's Person of the Year nod”

Representatives for TIME have not responded to Lovato's latest rant on Twitter.

Demi Lovato was not pleased to see that Donald Trump was the runner-up for TIME Magazine's Person of the Year, especially considering the publication named the "Silence Breakers" as the honorees.

Lovato was an outspoken supporter of Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election and was a vocal proponent of the #FreeKesha movement, but admitted she's gotten a bit quieter in terms of her political leanings as of late. "It's annoying that it's just about impact on the news", Lovato said.

The singer also argued that because the cover of the magazine celebrates something positive, Time should have carried the theme throughout the issue.

According to the Huffington Post, Trump has been accused of sexual assault from groping to kissing by at least 16 women.

As is the custom each year, a person or a group of people, who for the "better or worse" had an impact on news, is/are honoured by the TIME magazine as their Person Of The Year. The former Disney darling concluded her rant by giving advice to the magazine, "To be named POTY by @TIME it should be for doing something positive or fearless LIKE the women on the cover". @TIME mag - very disappointed in your hypocrisy and disrespect toward the women on your cover. To be named POTY by Time.should be for doing something positive or fearless LIKE the women on the cover.

Many people expressed outrage over this choice.

A Time spokesperson declined to comment, but TheWrap was pointed to criteria for the Person of the Year. He's repeatedly denied the accusations, with press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders saying as recently as October that the women were "lying." It completely goes against what they tried to do. It's baffling. And really, if Time thought President Trump should have been the runner-up, that's fine.
