The realm of entertainment gossip may seem like a safe haven from current events, but celebrity politics seem to pop up there, too. Chances are, you can think of a few celebs with political stances that you hate. Many controversial actors, musicians, and other hated celebrities are outspoken about their views, whether they're more conservative or liberal. Some of these political celebrities even seem to change party allegiances to suit their own lifestyles.
The number-one political celebrity is, without a doubt, Donald Trump. The business mogul-turned-reality-star-turned-politician is a popular presidential candidate with some groups, but his views on women, immigration, and foreign policy have left many people wishing he would go back to hosting The Apprentice. Fellow conservative Chuck Norris is outspoken as well, although he seems to have bad luck when it comes to picking presidential candidates: he supported Mike Huckabee in 2008 and Newt Gingrich in 2012.
Several liberal celebs also have annoying political views. If you lean to the left, odds are that you agree with Sean Penn on many issues, but his obnoxious delivery of his views keeps many people at arms length. The Dixie Chicks made a lot of enemies when lead singer, Natalie Maines, said that the group was "ashamed that the President of the United States is from Texas," referring to George W. Bush.What other political celebrities make the list? Keep reading to find out.
