Why Many Celebrities Can’t Take Stand During Elections

Meanwhile, AY, recently stated the fear of being blacklisted or attacked is the reason many celebrities keep mum on their preferred presidential candidate.

The comedian made this known via his verified Twitter handle on Thursday where he disclosed that most celebrities become slaves to fear during the election season.

According to him, when a celebrity takes a stand on any political candidate of their choice, they are likely to be attacked by clueless thugs who would do anything to secure their own interests.

He wrote: “Most celebs have become slaves to fear during elections. Whenever they publicly take a stand on any political candidate of their choice, they are either BLACKLISTED or ATTACKED by clueless thugs who would do anything to secure their own interests. Stop putting them under pressure.”
