I know the situation in your country is so shitty right now, but I can’t help but wonder why there are so many people who keep telling celebrities and other well-known people to “stick to acting/singing.” Didn’t you realize they’re citizens, too?
Why should they stop voicing their opinion on politics, when YOU, an ordinary citizen couldn’t stop blabbering about them? Just because they are famous doesn’t mean they should stick to just their profession. No matter which side they are on, they have, as do you, the right to say what they want to say (*cue Sara Bareilles’s Brave* — Sorry, I can’t help it).
I know. Eho am I to say these things, right? I’m not an American citizen. I don’t live in America. I should shut up and mind my own business. But see, the thing is, whatever happens in the United States, affects every other country. America is the land of the free, so why ask someone to stop fighting for what they think is right just because they don’t agree with what you believe in? Your entire country is currently in chaos, why not be a little kind to each other? Think about it.
