Wendy Williams thinks Shania Twain’s ticket sales will definitely suffer after she revealed she would have voted for Donald Trump. Although the Canadian based country singer apologized for her statement, backtracking, the talk show host made it very clear that she ‘rubbed people the wrong way’ and that will affect her career.
‘I don’t care who you vote for. I do not buy that it caught her off guard, and I do not buy her apology. I think stars need to stay away from politics so you can keep the coins going at your concerts. I do think the comment she made will rub people the wrong way, and ticket sales might suffer. You are in our country right now trying to sell tickets, and you are talking … just sing!’ Wendy said during her Hot Topics segment today.
A lot of fans were angry after what Shania said, even more so because Trump has talked negatively about Canada before.
‘I’d have voted for him because, even though he was offensive, he seemed honest. Do you want straight or polite? Not that you should not be able to have both. If I were voting, I just do not want bullsh-t. I would’ve voted for a feeling that it was transparent. And politics has a reputation of not being that, right?’ she stated during an interview.
The backlash was immediate, and the singer was forced to release a four-part apology on Twitter, claiming she was only ‘caught off guard’ by the political question and that she does not ‘hold any common moral beliefs’ with Trump.
‘I would like to apologize to anybody I have offended in a recent interview with the Guardian relating to the American President. The question caught me off guard. As a Canadian, I regret answering this unexpected question without giving my response more context.’ Read her complete statement here.
