Everyone has a right to their own beliefs and opinions, but we’re still struggling to reconcile the fact that there are black folks who support Donald Trump.
The president has made no secret of the fact that our issues are not at the top of his list but that hasn’t deterred this dumb-founding list of celebrities who have shown love to our Commander-In-Chief despite his laundry list of offenses against the community…and humanity.
Here’s a rundown of celebs we have lost, among other reasons, to the dark side.
When this songbird decided to put her pipes on display during Trump’s Inauguration she also decided to dismiss herself from every family function to follow…for life. Her justification was even more pitiful than her poor choice. “I needed them to see us,” Michele argued. “I needed them to see what we have to say, what we look like, how we talk. With the entire campaign experience, I think that many of us were wondering, who is he talking to?” (Photo by Jason Kempin/Getty Images)
Tina Campbell: The Mary Mary star has been on the Trump train from the start and now she’s suffering the consequences. She has opened up about her support for #45 having religious roots and continues to defend that decision, even after being forced to cancel her current tour due to lack of sales.

Terrell Owens: TO’s support of Trump isn’t as much of a surprise. “This may be what the country needs and Trump. He’s a guy who won’t put up with B.S. and has what it takes to change how government is run. With that being said, Trump … you’re hired.” Let’s just say he’s not paid to think.
Kanye West: Yeezy didn’t actually make it to the voting booth but that didn’t stop him from telling a huge crowd that he would have chosen Trump if he had. At first we hoped ‘Ye was just in need of a great big nap but he doubled down on the notion when he went to NYC to have one-on-one meetings with the President-elect to chat about “multicultural issues including bullying, supporting teachers, modernizing curriculums, and violence in Chicago.” Riight.

Azaelia Banks: The outspoken rapper shared her support for Trump on social media during the election, but we’re not sure if she was serious or just looking for a little trouble. “I REALLY want Donald Trump to win the election.” Really? We don’t even know if Azealia believes what she says anymore. (Photo by John Sciulli/Getty Images for Nasty Gal)
