Today in “people are outraged because it’s 2018” news, internet matriarch, Chrissy Teigen is getting some heat for a photo she posted with Canada’s (former) Queen of Country, Shania Twain. A few short months ago, this would be an uplifting story where we gush about two of our icons chumming it up and looking cute. That is, until Twain got herself into some trouble for showing support for the guy who blocked Teigen on Twitter for being too mean.

Back in April, Shania Twain was doing the interview circuit for her most recent album and upcoming tour. Fans were psyched to see their long-absent Canadian Country Queen return to the spotlight. Then she had to go ruin it all by telling The Guardian that if she had been able to vote in the 2016 American election, she would have cast a ballot for Donald J. Trump.

The backlash was quick and harsh, with a lot of people arguing that supporting Trump means supporting (or at least being complicit in) his bigotry. Twain released a statement the next day giving her answer more context and trying to explain why she felt that a lot of people identified with Donald Trump. Mostly, people didn’t want to hear it and Shania kind of receded into the periphery for a while. Until she resurfaced to pose with Chrissy Teigen — known anti-Trump activist — for a Lip Sync Battle promo.

People were critical of Teigen’s lighthearted post calling the singer a “legend.” And they did not hold back.

It’s a sad day when we have to check our love for Shania Twain, but we guess that’s what 2018 has come to.
