Shania Twain has apologized for saying if she were American she would have voted for Donald Trump for president, even though he’s offensive. Twain made the comments in an interview with The Guardian that was published over the weekend.

She told the British newspaper: “I would have voted for him because, even though he was offensive, he seemed honest. Do you want straight or polite? Not that you shouldn’t be able to have both. If I were voting, I just don’t want bull****. I would have voted for a feeling that it was transparent. And politics has a reputation of not being that, right?” “Do you want straight or polite? I would have voted for a feeling that is transparent.”

After receiving backlash, Twain took to Twitter to explain herself.

She posted four tweets addressing the interview saying she was caught off guard to an “unexpected question” and didn’t give a response with more context.

Here are a few responses to Shania’s quick chameleon shift:

Twain has developed quite a following from the LGBTQ community with her “Man! I Feel Like a Woman,” song and has been vocal about her stance on LGBTQ rights and marriage. But the way she turned on Trump will no doubt draw a lot of backfire from Trump followers.
