K. Michelle is the latest celebrity to announce her endorsement for Hillary Clinton in the presidential race, but she probably wasn’t expecting the backlash from doing so.
K. hit up Instagram to reflect on her professional accomplishments, during which, she praised Clinton and advised fans that Hillary is a “woman you should know.”
She started off her Instagram post with a look back on her early life: “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.”
K. Michelle released her debut studio album Rebellious Soul in 2013, and followed it up with Anybody Wanna Buy a Heart? Her third album drops at the end of March.
“March 25 is a celebration! I will be releasing my third album #MoreIssuesThanVogue when they said I would NEVER have one,” she wrote. “You guys made the last 2 albums #1 on the R&B charts, let’s make the third time a charm AGAIN! One Love.”
Michelle ended the post announcing her endorsement for Clinton.
“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!”
Kerry Washington, Jeffrey Wright, Uzo Aduba, Jennifer Lopez and Magic Johnson have all been enthusiastic about Hillary Clinton’s campaign. In a separate post, K. Michelle said getting an opportunity to speak to Clinton about “the issues that are important to me as an African-American woman, was beyond motivating.”
The Grio notes how many fans were quick to blast the singer her for the endorsement, with one person replying, “Lol what a joke. Well you will be able to keep on getting those abortions with Clinton in office.”
