Travis Tritt Is Against Celebrities Talking Politics (Unless It's Him, Then It's Cool)
Travis Tritt: country music icon. Dumb hair-haver. Hypocrite.
So, like many conservatives, Tritt took issue with Meryl Streep’s Golden Globes speech. And like the country music community has long enjoyed doing, Tritt responded to the speech with a “shut up and sing badly like a woman dying of syphilis.”
Advice to all actors, musicians and entertainers: Please stick to your crafts that we all love you for and drop the political rhetoric.— Travis Tritt (@Travistritt) January 9, 2017

But that’s just one example; what’s the big d—oh, there’s more.
OK, fine, TWO things, whatev—oh, shit.
Hm. It’s almost like he’s not actually against performers being political.
.@Travistritt So really it seems this is about a celebrity talking politics that you don't like, and not just talking politics.— Jessica Huseman (@JessicaHuseman) January 10, 2017
