Celebrities have a voice they can use to make a change. In recent years, we see that celebrities are becoming louder and more politically active. Whether addressing gender issues or race inequality, these people need to speak up. Since our governments won’t make changes, celebrities can do it instead. Not only are they highly influential, but they have the following to make people talk.
So with all that said, who are the most politically active celebrities? Here is a list of the most famous ones.
King James is quite vocal on social media. The NBA superstar is a proud advocate for the Black Lives Matter movement. More specifically, he has been making the news regarding the deaths of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd. But not only that, LeBron had plenty of say about Kyle Rittenhouse.
King James proudly wears the BLM logo on his shirt before each game. He has millions of followers on Instagram and Twitter, which means he has the audience to make a change. His political views are unknown, but LeBron James did vote for Joe Biden in the 2020 Presidential Election.
Lori Loughlin is a politically active celebrity with a somewhat scandalous history. She is most active on Twitter, where she shares her views on the latest topics. She was very active on Twitter during the “Black Lives Matter” protests in California. Being a strong supporter of the movement, her popularity is growing by the day.
Some are saying she is doing it on purpose as a way to land her next big role. Bear in mind; Lori is most famous for her roles of Rebecca Katsopolis in Full House and the sequel, Fuller House. Being an advocate for BLM does mean she favors the Democratic party. But is that true? If you’re interested in her alignments, you can read about Lori Loughlin’s political views.
John Legend is well known among the left. He is a strong supporter of President Joe Biden with stronger opposition views for the 45th President, Donald Trump. Ahead of the 2016 Elections, John and his wife took to Twitter to call Trump a “racist.”
He is a known supporter of the Democrat party and donated $5,000 to the DNC back in 2017. On Trump’s birthday, he made a donation of $72,000 to the American Civil Liberties Union. He even dedicated one of his songs to the movement to get Trump out of office. Many consider him a patriot, while the opposition says he is brainwashed. Regardless, we know that John Legend is politically active and votes blue.
It’s no secret that Billie Eilish sang for at the Democratic National Convention when she was only 18. Back at a time when she was making her name, Eilish took a big risk by disclosing her political views. That only worked for her as she is known as one of the most influential celebrities. She is also very active on Twitter and doesn’t shy from sharing her views and opinions.
She supports BLM and speaks against Donald Trump and the Republican party. Billie is very smart for her age. She knows that the world isn’t perfect, hence why she is a leader who fights for love and equality. Her views on systemic racism are apparent to anyone who follows her on Twitter and Instagram. She won’t say no and doesn’t care about any backlash.
In 2020, Billie said ‘All lives don’t matter.” This got her in hot water with Republicans and moderates who disagree with the fundamental beliefs of the Black Lives Matter movement. Before the 2020 election, Billie teamed up with a nonprofit organization that wants to educate voters on how to participate in the upcoming election. Come 2024, we can expect Billie to cast her vote for Joe Biden or any other Democrat candidate.
Katy Perry is a celebrity that needs no introduction. The singer is one of the most influential artists on this earth, and she uses her voice well. Perry is a huge Hillary Clinton supporter, and she made that clear during the 2016 election. During the 2017 BRIT Awards, she mocked President Trump and the-then British PM, Theresa May.
The stunts didn’t end there. At the 2017 Grammy awards, Perry went hard on Trump and got a standing ovation from the crowd. Her activism doesn’t stop there. As with any celebrity, she is active on Twitter and Instagram. She doesn’t shy from the fact she is a hard-core Democrat and patriot. In recent times, she does interviews dressed in patriotic gear. While it’s been some time since her last stunt, Perry will always be a Hillary-first celebrity.
The actress might be Royalty now, but she will always be American. Markle is best known for her role in the TV series, “Suits.” After marrying Prince Harry in 2018, she went hard on the Queen of England. She managed to persuade Harry to give up his legacy as the heir to the Queen. She received a ton of backlash in the UK for that. It is reported that the Queen doesn’t want to talk to Markle and that they’re possibly in a feud.
Regardless, Markle is politically active and has made numerous interviews to back up her views. She teamed up with Michele Obama for the “We All Vote” event. She is also a feminist that encourages young women to keep pushing and keep fighting the patriarchy.
