Demi Lovato to MAGA troll: I literally don’t care if this ruins my career

Dem_Lo_1

Demi Lovato’s 2020 has been about as tumultuous as everybody else’s 2020. First, she met Max Ehrich and fell head over heels for him, moving him in so they could quarantine together before she’d learned how to spell his last name. Then came a highly staged lockdown engagement with a bonkers ring and plenty of ‘happy’ tears. Finally someone exposed Max for the creepy star chaser he was and Demi kicked him to the curb. In the midst of all this personal nightmare, there is the global nightmare that is COVID and the national nightmare of the Trump presidency.

Demi refocused her attention from her wastrel ex to the election, which is terrifying to all of us. And like the rest of us, Demi is encouraging people to get out and vote. But while she’s at it, Demi decided to remind folks of all the offenses the current POTUS has committed against his people. She wrapped her thoughts up in a new song called Commander in Chief (posted below). The song isn’t to my taste, but it is passionate, and I certainly agree with everything Demi says in it. However, not everyone does agree with Demi. Many of Demi’s MAGA fans took exception with her putting out a political statement and have been leaving her comments telling her so. Demi posted this one to her IG stories explaining, “so I’ve be getting a lot of these comments”

I hope you realize this makes people that don’t have the same political views feel like they can’t listen to you anymore. We could (sic) care less what you post about politics but this song is going to at (sic) to (sic) far especially when the majority of your family is Republican. I’m personally ashamed to be a Lovatic right now but no matter how hard it is I’m not letting this song change my feelings about you especially after everything you have helped me with. I really hope this doesn’t ruin your career Demetria.

Ah, don’t worry – we’ve got Demetria’s back while you’re out there flapping in the wind. I realize that celebrities have always been encouraged to tamp down their politics as a whole, but this is where we are as a country: if you dislike the person my family is voting for, I cannot listen to your music. A few MAGA trolls aren’t going to bring Demi’s career to a halt. But, even if they did, Demi said it wouldn’t matter to her because, as she said in her response to MAGAtina above, she stands up for her beliefs.

You do understand as a celebrity, I have a right to political views as well? Or did you forget that we aren’t just around to entertain people for our entire lives.. that we are citizens of the same country and we are humans with opinions as well.
