Chrissy Teigen is not there for Kid Rock’s criticism of Taylor Swift.
The Bring the Funny judge came to the defense of the “ME!” -Singer shortly after Kid Rock, 48, tweeted, “Taylor Swift wants to be a democrat because she wants to be in movies … period. And it looks like she’s sucking Hollyweird’s doorknob to get there. Oldest move in the book “Good luck, girl.” Kid Rock. “
In response, Teigen, 33, fired back by writing in a tweet: “You are pathetic. – Chrissy Teigen.”

Although it is unclear what triggered Kid Rock’s outburst, Swift’s Vogue cover story in which she brought up politics was released just a day earlier. In the story, Swift, 29, discussed the public control she received due to her lack of approval by candidates in the previous presidential campaign.
“Unfortunately, in the 2016 elections, you had a political opponent who armed the idea of celebrity approval,” she said of Donald Trump, although she did not name him by name.
“He went around and said,” I’m a man of the people. I’m for you. I care about you. I just knew it. I knew I wouldn’t help, “she remembered. “Also, you know, the summer before the elections, all people said:” [Taylor Swift’s] calculated. She is manipulative. She is not what she seems. She is a snake. She’s a liar. “These are exactly the same insults that people threw at Hillary [Clinton]. “
“Would I be an approval or would I be a liability?” Swift also told Vogue and explained why she could not be frank about a presidential candidate.
‘Look, snakes from a feather come together. Look, the two lying women. The two filthy women. Literally millions of people said I had to disappear. So I disappeared. In many ways, “she said.
After not discussing politics publicly in 2016, Swift broke her political silence on Instagram regarding the November mid-term elections.
“I’m writing this message about the upcoming November 6th election, in which I’m going to vote in the state of Tennessee,” Swift began her long message alongside a subdued Polaroid of herself on Instagram. “In the past I was reluctant to publicly express my political opinions, but because of various events in my life and in the world over the past two years, I now feel very different about it.”
“I have always and always cast my vote on what candidate will protect and fight for the human rights that I believe we all deserve in this country,” Swift continued. “I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights and that any discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender is wrong. I believe that the systemic racism that we still see against people of color in this country is frightening, sickening and prevailing. “

I’m writing this post about the upcoming midterm elections on November 6th, in which I’ll be voting in the state of Tennessee. In the past I’ve been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now. I always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we all deserve in this country. I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights, and that any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender is WRONG. I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent. I cannot vote for someone who will not be willing to fight for dignity for ALL Americans, no matter their skin color, gender or who they love. Running for Senate in the state of Tennessee is a woman named Marsha Blackburn. As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I cannot support Marsha Blackburn. Her voting record in Congress appalls and terrifies me. She voted against equal pay for women. She voted against the Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, which attempts to protect women from domestic violence, stalking, and date rape. She believes businesses have a right to refuse service to gay couples. She also believes they should not have the right to marry. These are not MY Tennessee values. I will be voting for Phil Bredesen for Senate and Jim Cooper for House of Representatives. Please, please educate yourself on the candidates running in your state and vote based on who most closely represents your values. For a lot of us, we may never find a candidate or party with whom we agree 100% on every issue, but we have to vote anyway. So many intelligent, thoughtful, self-possessed people have turned 18 in the past two years and now have the right and privilege to make their vote count. But first you need to register, which is quick and easy to do. October 9th is the LAST DAY to register to vote in the state of TN. Go to vote.org and you can find all the info. Happy Voting! 🗳😃🌈
In the position, Swift endorsed Phil Bredesen for the Senate and Jim Cooper for the House of Representatives, and she called the Republican on the way to the Senate, Marsha Blackburn.
“I can’t support Marsha Blackburn,” she wrote. “Her voice record in Congress appalls and scares me. She voted against equal pay for women. She voted against the Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, which seeks to protect women against domestic violence, stalking and rape. She believes that companies have the right to refuse service to gay couples. She also thinks they shouldn’t have the right to marry. These are not MY Tennessee values. (Blackburn overcame Bredesen and Cooper.)
As a result of Swift’s report, voter registration saw a significant peak in the 24-hour period after it had been posted.
In an interview in May with the German outlet DPA, the singer said that she “is not going to stop encouraging young people to vote and try to make them talk about what’s going on in our country. ” In addition, she said that the music to be released on her new album, Lover, on August 23 will have “political undertone”.
Swift’s latest video clip for her single “You Need to Calm Down” includes a number of prominent queer celebrities, including Ellen DeGeneres, Laverne Cox and Fab Five from Queer Eye, and ends by asking fans to sign a petition in support of Equality Act, which protects people in the LGBTQ community against discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
“Rights are actually being stripped of anyone who is not a straight white cisgender man,” Swift said in her recent Vogue cover story. “Until recently I did not realize that I could argue for a community that I am not part of.”
Kid Rock was an early proponent of Trump and has publicized his Republican views over the years. In March he went golfing with the president at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, in March.
