When you have millions and millions of loyal followers on social media, it’s much easier to affect change and increase awareness. Combine that with a raging political climate and you’re bound to see the tweets and Instagram updates come pouring in.
Here are 6 posts that had a little extra political charge than the casual selfie:
1. Jim Carey slams CA Governor over vaccine law
California Gov says yes to poisoning more children with mercury and aluminum in manditory vaccines. This corporate fascist must be stopped.
2. Katy Perry gave the best pep-talk to women everywhere.
Before accepting the offer to be on the cover of Forbes, I was told that a lot of women have previously shied away from doing it. I wondered if it was because they thought socially it would look like they were flaunting or bragging or it wasn’t a humble decision. Ladies, there is a difference between being humble and working hard to see the fruits of your labor blossom, and your dreams realized. Hopefully this cover can be an inspiration to women out there that it’s okay to be proud of hard earned success and that there is no shame in being a boss. Also… don’t think that I didn’t celebrate this moment by going straight to Taco Bell and getting my crunch wrap supreme #ontourbreak A photo posted by KATY PERRY (@katyperry) on
3. Beyonce made a quasi-sequel to her “7/11” music video to support #LoveWins.
4. We’ll just call this “Pea Gate.”
President Obama lit Twitter on fire after responding to the New York Time’s tweet that suggests using peas in guacamole.
5. Cheryl Burke steps down as co-host for Trump-owned Miss USA pageant.
