"Though many commended the magazine for publicly acknowledging the women of the "#MeToo" movement with the "Silence Breakers" cover, Lovato took offense to the chosen runner-up, President Donald Trump. "Really @TIME? #hypocrites" Lovato began her Twitter-tirade. Nonetheless, the stance of the magazine is that the POTY title goes to the person or group that influenced news and/or events of the past year. Taylor Swift, who is featured on the Time cover alongside Ashley Judd, donated money to Kesha after Kesha's injunction against Dr. Luke was later denied by the court. As you remember, the current White House resident has been accused of sexual assault in the past and Lovato thinks this undervalues exactly what these women are denouncing.
The "Sorry, Not Sorry" singer Tweeted, "I've become less vocal about my distain for certain people over the past year because it only divides our country even more but this is worth speaking up about".
6, 2017, Time announced its choice for Person of the Year: the "Silence Breakers", men and women who've spoken out against sexual abuse. She added, "It's annoying that it's just about impact on the news".
Demi Lovato concluded her tweets with the following message: "To be named POTY by Time should be for doing something positive or courageous LIKE the women on the cover". She then expressed her disappointment over the magazine, saying, "Very disappointed in your hypocrisy and disrespect toward the women on your cover". To be named POTY by Time.should be for doing something positive or courageous LIKE the women on the cover. The decision was met with a ton of well-deserved praise, but Demi Lovato couldn't help but notice something very unusual - President Donald Trump, a man who has been accused of sexually assaulting multiple women, was named as the POTY runner-up.
