Another popular celebrity is fully supporting liberal values, and conservative fans are not too thrilled about that.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Clarkson was asked which candidate she supported in the 2016 election. The music star replied:
I’m a fan of Hillary. She’s a badass. I don’t just want a woman to win, I want the right person. And I think she’s also that.
After quoting Clarkson’s lyrics in an email back in 2012, it’s certain that the presidential candidate is a huge Kelly Clarkson fan herself.

On the other hand, the right-wing Twitter trolls have their own opinions of Clarkson’s stated support for Clinton and man, these people sure are ruthless and ignorant..
@kelly_clarkson You just went on the CELEBRITY IDIOT list for opening your mouth in favor of Hillary. That woman is a crook.

All of this backlash started after Clarkson spoke out in support of marijuana legalization. Many conservatives (especially Fox News) demonize Clarkson for stating her viewpoints. In other words, they can’t stand anyone whose opinions differ from their own.

It’s funny how conservatives preach about the importance of the U.S. Constitution, but when it comes to freedom of speech they don’t care to hear anyone else’s views but their own. And knowing that celebrities such as Garth Brooks, Toby Keith, Tim McGraw, and Kelly Clarkson are Democrats and support issues such as gay marriage and weed legalization drives the GOP absolutely crazy. Aside from that, to attack an individual personally on who she votes for politically shows just how dense Republicans are.
