Is it okay for celebrities to get political? Or should they just shut up and look pretty? According to a new study, it depends on which topics they tackle. “The Hollywood Reporter” polled over 2,000 Americans and asked about different hot-button issues. Here are the top political topics we’re COOL with celebrities taking a stance on, and the ones we DON’T want them to talk about.
Encouraging people to go out and VOTE is the #1 cause we’re okay with. 77% of people said it’s appropriate for celebrities to talk about it.
The rest of the top five are: Supporting equal pay, 72%, police brutality, 63%, more diversity in Hollywood, 62%, and fighting climate change, also 62%.
The stance we’re LEAST okay with is that VACCINES are dangerous. Only 25% of people said it’s appropriate for celebrities to voice their anti-vaxxer opinions.
Also, just 36% say it’s cool for stars to talk about stricter abortion laws. Only 37% are okay with them publicly supporting a border wall. And only 43% want to hear their opinions on an athlete’s right to kneel during the National Anthem.
