On Dec. 28, @kelly_clarkson tweeted, “I love Ron Paul. I liked him a lot during the last republican nomination and no one gave him a chance. If he wins the nomination for the Republican party in 2012 he’s got my vote. Too bad he probably won’t.”
That simple tweet, possibly tweeted while waiting for cinnamon rolls to finish baking, was heard across the social networking site causing some fans to declare their disloyalty towards her.
“@kelly_clarkson oh my god [sic.] I’ve never been more dispointed [sic.] I thought you were smarter wow #unfollow,” was tweeted by @LoveUMore.
But Clarkson wasn’t staying mum on the coversation.
Her response to the tweet above showed she was staying “Strong” like her new single and standing her ground: “@LoveUmore because you don’t agree with me, I’m stupid. Very mature response.”
According to RonPaul2012.com, Paul is pro-life, wants to secure borders and wants to end the Federal Reserve System.
The GOP’s site mentions nothing of homosexual rights, however, that was one reason @my_warden was shocked Clarkson would support Paul.
“I’m flabbergasted that an artist with such a huge gay fan base would publicly support Ron Paul. Why, @kelly_clarkson, why?!”
Clarkson tweeted multiple times that she “never seen or heard Ron Paul say anything against gay people” or that he was “a racist or homophobe,” which seemed to be the main reason the singer’s fans were so against Paul.
@keeeeCoh posted a link of an interview about his stance on homosexuality in the military.
Paul answered, “I think with every homosexual problem we have in America, we have a heterosexual problem.”
He believed heterosexual men going to prostitutes proved “poor and bad character” also and the real issue was young women getting pregnant in the military.
“I see that as a heterosexual problem and I bet you financially that’s as big a burden as any homosexual problem that we have,” Paul told the interviewee.
However, Clarkson didn’t let the situation ruin the rest of her day. With her last tweet to her disloyal fans, “Man my eyes have been opened to so much hate tonight. If ya’ll ever disagree with something I say please don’t feel the need to attack me[…]” Clarkson continued tweeting and laughing away.
