2017 might’ve been a garbage fire for everyone else — but for Taylor Swift, it was great!
We understand things like the travel ban or the fact that millions may lose healthcare or the glaring presence of racism in this country (the list goes on and on) don’t affect the high-profile singer directly — but this lack of acknowledgement from our culture’s most influential people helps keep these injustices in place!
We get you sold over a million copies of Reputation, and that’s amazing, but people are suffering out here in the real world.
To catch you up, she shared:
I love you guys so much. This was a photo @paul_sidoti took at @capitalofficial Jingle Bell Ball in London a few days ago. I couldn├óΓé¼Γäót have asked for a better year, all thanks to you. Thanks for all the birthday wishes. Can├óΓé¼Γäót wait to see what 28 will be like. See you on tour ├░┼╕╦£ΓÇ₧A post shared by Taylor Swift (@taylorswift) on Dec 13, 2017 at 5:01pm PST
Ch-ch-check out the brutal responses to the tone-deaf message (below)!
I mean, yeah there were Nazi’s and white supremacy marches, and families are being town apart, and there were mass shootings, and people are losing health care, but none of that affects me, so 2017 was great!
