Shania Twain apologizes for supporting Trump after huge social media backlash

The News & Why It Matters

Country music superstar Shania Twain, said in an interview with The Guardian that if she were a U.S. citizen, she would have voted for President Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election. But after intense social media backlash, she issued a lengthy apology on Twitter stating, “I would like to apologise to anybody I have offended in a recent interview with the Guardian relating to the American President. The question caught me off guard. As a Canadian, I regret answering this unexpected question without giving my response more context."


On today’s “News and Why it Matters”, Sara Gonzales, Doc Thompson, Stu Burguiere and Jason Buttrill react to Twain's statement and apology.

"Look, at this point don't even apologize," said Stu. "There's no benefit to you, to your career, for coming out and saying, 'Oh wow, I'm so sorry' because they just torture you anyway."

See the panel’s reaction in the clip above.
