Following the election of a tangerine man-boy into our nation's highest office, liberal America has undergone a flood of emotions — mainly rage, despair, and the need for someone to blame. And for a surprisingly large number of Twitter users, Taylor Swift has become that scapegoat.
It's easy to point fingers at her, sure. As someone who's supposedly taken up the feminist mantle and exerts major influence over her fans and approximately 156,147,880 social media followers, many find it inexcusable that Swift refrained from weighing in on such a high-stakes election until Tuesday (November 8). And even then, the post she shared on Instagram simply encouraged people to vote, with no mention of a specific candidate endorsement.
For a lot of people of the interwebs, that kind of neutrality and, seemingly, apathy just ain't gonna cut it.
