K. Michelle Viciously Slammed for Supporting Hillary Clinton

K. Michelle Viciously Slammed for Supporting Hillary Clinton

Why do people have such a problem with her endorsement?

Published March 1st

Like Killer Mike, Kerry Washington and many other celebs (even some whose names don't start with K), K. Michelle is taking sides in this year's presidential primary. On Monday, the R&B singer voiced her support for Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton, saying of the candidate, "I relate to her."

For some reason, a lot of her followers have a problem with that, and viciously attacked Michelle for her endorsement on social media. Some blasted Clinton, others encouraged the singer to #FeeltheBern and even more tried to shame her into voting for Donald Trump. "Lol, what a joke. Well you will be able to keep on getting those abortions with Clinton in office," one cruel commenter wrote.

My life has taken me places I would've never thought. I graduated from Florida A&M University with honors, and later was accepted into numerous law schools. Then one wrong turn and my life changed. From ratchet reality TV, Twitter fights, to currently making history as the 1st African-American to ever receive an endorsement and their own beverage brand through Jack Daniels. So many wrong turns, but a constant fight to get back on the right track. It's takin some time. Music is my heart and my life, but after this album I'm taking a break to focus on my other gifts. I would like to finally enroll in Law School and pursue my other business ventures. My restaurant is in build out, my home good line is about to launch in a department store near you. I have two TV shows I'm producing. I also have one of the hugest announcements of my life about my new partnership with Atlantic Records coming in a couple weeks. Wow. Who would've thought that red wig, Love & Hip Hop K. Michelle would be at this point? Today I heard my mother cry because she was proud of my current career accomplishments and that's all I've ever wanted. My goal isn't to be the perfect role model, but to be the MOST realistic. To anybody I've hurt along this journey of healing my hurt. I'm SORRY. To all my fans I love you like family. March 25 is a celebration! I will be releasing my third album #MoreIssuesThanVogue when they said I would NEVER have one. You guys made the last 2 albums #1 on the R&B charts, let's make the third time a charm AGAIN! One Love. P.S. I will be actively supporting and campaigning for Hillary Clinton throughout this term, she is a woman who you should know. A woman also counted out. I relate to her. I'm placing my energy in people and things that evoke CHANGE! ✊🏽
