Demi Lovato Slams TIME for Honouring Donald Trump: 'You Hypocrites!'

This year, the People of the Year are the Silence Breakers - the people who spoke up about sexual assault and harassment and launched a movement, including the #MeToo hashtag. "Really @TIME? #hypocrites." Her rant didn't stop there. Nonetheless, the stance of the magazine is that the POTY title goes to the person or group that influenced news and/or events of the past year. Actress Ashley Judd, singer Taylor Swift, corporate lobbyist Adama Iwu, worker Isabel Pascual and former Uber engineer Susan Fowler featured on the cover for 2017.

Again, if you've been hanging out under a rock for the past couple days, I'd like to inform you that Donald Trump was the runner-up.

As you may be aware, Time magazine gave their 2017 POTY honor to "Silence Breakers" - the many courageous sexual harassment or assault victims from every work field who opened up about what they went through dealing with people using their power over them.

"To be named POTY by @TIME it should be for doing something positive or fearless LIKE the women on the cover".

The pop star called out the publication for naming the American president as a Person of the Year runner-up.

"I've become less vocal about my distain for certain people over the past year because it only divides our country even more but this is worth speaking up about", she wrote. It should be noted that within the cover story, Trump himself is mentioned eight times, as both a harasser and inspiration for women to speak out.

Trump has several accusations of sexual misconduct against him, and is infamous for his "grab em by the p--" comments about being able to grab women when famous in a leaked Access Hollywood tape.

"To be named POTY by @TIME it should be for doing something positive or courageous LIKE the women on the cover". She also expressed that while she realized the winners were based off of impact on the news, she believes the features "should be for doing something positive or fearless LIKE the women on the cover".
