Taylor Swift has stayed quiet on all things political, until this Saturday. She sent out a tweet in support of the Women’s March movement, which was followed by some backlash.
So much love, pride, and respect for those who marched. I’m proud to be a woman today, and every day. #WomensMarch

Some of her Twitter followers were not happy with her burst of political activism. In fact, some people called her out on her silence leading up to the election.
@taylorswift13 then why didn’t you say anything during the presidential campaign when we could’ve made it so that this didn’t have to happen

Not everyone was upset with TSwift, some fans came to her defense.
