ortly before the 2016 election, I put together a list of celebrities who had stayed silent about politics. This enraged conservatives, who tweeted various threats and insults at me for simply pointing out that celebrities have a moral obligation to use their platform to promote ethical participation in our democracy.

And I stand by the idea that when our president is a celebrity, then the political views of celebrities are important in this country.
The shameful presidency of Donald Trump has mobilized a number of politically neutral people in this country in the years since his election. Yet, some celebrities—like Taylor Swift—have remained silent.
In an interview with the New York Times, Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails called out the Taylor Swifts of the world for remaining silent about topics that immediately impact our democracy. As Reznor told the Times:
Yes, Taylor Swift isn't going to save us on her own by denouncing Trump, but doing something is always better than doing absolutely nothing.
