Demi Lovato Slams TIME Magazine for 'Hypocritical' Choice of Honoring Donald Trump

Demi Lovato

The "Tell Me You Love Me" singer took the magazine to task Wednesday night (December 6) for what she saw as total hypocrisy among its choices for Person of the Year picks.

Demi Lovato is not pleased with Time's Person of the Year issue!

With a hashtag, she calls the publication hypocritical for honoring the "brave women coming forward against sexual assault" by then naming a man "with sexual assault allegations against him" as runner-up. "Really Time?", Lovato posted on Twitter.

Lovato went on to say that being named "Person of the Year" should be for doing something positive or courageous - just like the women on the cover-and not simply for one's impact on the news. Actress Ashley Judd, singer Taylor Swift, corporate lobbyist Adama Iwu, worker Isabel Pascual and former Uber engineer Susan Fowler featured on the cover for 2017. It's none other than Donald Trump. She also expressed that while she realized the winners were based off of impact on the news, she believes the features "should be for doing something positive or courageous LIKE the women on the cover". Trump, meanwhile, was named the runner-up for the title, while it is known that he was accused for sexually harassing sixteen women before.

When Time announced that it's Person of the Year was everyone who spoke out about sexual misconduct, many lauded the magazine for recognizing the impact of the #MeToo movement.

"I've become less vocal about my [disdain] for certain people over the past year because it only divides our country even more but this is worth speaking up about", she continued. Trump has denied the allegations and White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said the women are "lying".

In addition, Demi retweeted a fan who suggested that Kesha should have been included. To be named POTY by Time.should be for doing something positive or fearless LIKE the women on the cover.
