Singer Shania Twain Expresses Controversial Opinion

Grace Klauser, Editor

Early last week, Canadian singer Shania Twain interviewed with The Guardian and claimed to be a Trump supporter.

“I would have voted for him because, even though he was offensive, he seemed honest,” said Twain in her interview.

The reaction was predictibally controversial especially over social media. Many were upset with Twain’s comment because of their own personal political views that happened to be opposite.

This was a topic of conversation in the halls of Blanchet as well.

“It was risky of her to say that,” said senior Shannon Steele, “because she should have known how much controversy it would cause.”

After being attacked through tweets and posts, Twain publicly apologized in a tweet.

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

The Canadian singer shouldn’t have felt the need to even apologize. She has the right to feel the way she does about American politics, and shouldn’t care what people have to say about that.

Everyone has their own opinion, and there are always going to be people that disagree.
