“Time” Magazine’s Person of the Year is . . . The Silence Breakers
“Time” magazine announced its Person of the Year yesterday. And no, it didn’t go to PRESIDENT TRUMP or COLIN KAEPERNICK . . . or any single person for that matter. This year’s honorees are THE SILENCE BREAKERS . . . a.k.a. women AND MEN who’ve spoken out against sexual misconduct. The cover features five women, including ASHLEY JUDD and TAYLOR SWIFT.
Technically there are six women, but only the elbow of the sixth is visible, because she didn’t want to be identified.
“Time” spoke to them, along with people from all walks of life who’ve come forward, including other celebrities like Rose McGowan, Megyn Kelly, actor Terry Crews, and Alyssa Milano . . . who started the #MeToo movement.
The cover image accompanying the story features actress Ashley Judd, Taylor Swift and former Uber engineer Susan Fowler, who have all spoken out against various forms of sexual misconduct. It also highlights the plight of sexual harassment among people who don’t have as large of an audience by featuring Isabel Pascual, a woman from Mexico who works picking strawberries, and Adama Iwu, a corporate lobbyist in Sacramento.
Not everyone was happy with the magazine’s choices for one reason or another. DEMI LOVATO called “Time” hypocrites for naming PRESIDENT TRUMP this year’s runner-up, since there are so many allegations against him.
Some were upset that McGowan wasn’t on the cover. And some were angry that they even included Taylor Swift . . . which they did because of her court case with that DJ who allegedly grabbed her backside.
