Demi Lovato Is 'Disappointed' That Time Honored Trump Alongside #MeToo as POTY

The 25-year-old singer first called out Time for choosing Donald Trump as the runner-up for the "Person of the Year" cover by calling the magazine's choice hypocritical.

TIME may be earning tons of praise for its 2017 Person of the Year cover, highlighting dozens of sexual assault and harassment "silence breakers" and pioneers in the #MeToo movement, but Demi Lovato sees a huge flaw in the magazine's recent issue. She ended that initial message using the hashtag "hypocrites".

But others pointed out that Trump being the runner up made ideal sense, particularly because Person of the Year acknowledges the person or people who have had the most impact. This year, the magazine honored the women, including Ashley Judd and Taylor Swift, who spoke up about sexual harassment. Hence it was no surprise when Trump made it to the list in 2016, following his massive win in the presidential election over Hillary Clinton.

According to the Huffington Post, Trump has been accused of sexual assault from groping to kissing by at least 16 women. The decision was met with a ton of well-deserved praise, but Demi Lovato couldn't help but notice something very unusual - President Donald Trump, a man who has been accused of sexually assaulting multiple women, was named as the POTY runner-up.

In addition, Demi retweeted a fan who suggested that Kesha should have been included.

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

Trump took the runner-up slot, with a write-up about the commander in chief saying he "changed the rules of the presidency".

"I've become less vocal about my [disdain] for certain people over the past year because it only divides our country even more but this is worth speaking up about".

"To be named POTY by @TIME it should be for doing something positive or fearless LIKE the women on the cover". That can mean positive impact, negative impact, or have just had the biggest overall influence. The magazine named him Runner Up.
