Back when the election was going on, you know, before an orange oompa-loompa took office, celebrities spoke out non-stop. Almost every celeb was #WithHer and constantly spoke out against Donald Trump, except Taylor Swift. Tay-Tay stayed silent throughout the duration of the election and of course, many called her out on it.
Now, Lena Dunham, who is a major Clinton supporter spoke out against the backlash Swift was facing for “not speaking up.”
According to EW, Dunham said,
“I just think everyone has to do it their way. When I was lesser known, I was like, ‘Who could not share their opinion?’ Then I found out that when you talk about politics, people straight up tweet you the floor plan of your house and say they’re coming to your house. You have to fucking watch it, because people are nuts.”
Dunham then praised Swift for the way she handles herself,
“She’s been in the public eye since she was 15 … when I met her, she was newly 22, and she was a fucking seasoned pro at this stuff. Watching the way that she understands the vicissitudes of the cycle, and she just keeps making her work — that’s just really impressive to me.”
