Even though the election is almost over, we are still learning new things about each candidate. To wit: While there’s been a lot of hate slung at Hillary Clinton over the years, we didn’t know until just very recently that some of it comes from singer Meredith Brooks, whose feminist anthem “Bitch” just missed topping the charts back in 1997. In fact, as Fusion noted, Brooks not only dislikes Clinton, she’s taken to Twitter on numerous occasions to denounce her. Wow, what else can 2016 bring us?
While Brooks doesn’t support Donald Trump either, she believes that Clinton is corrupt, dishonest, hypocritical, and even emasculating. It’s also worth noting that Brooks still identifies as a feminist, but many of her qualms against Clinton sound eerily similar to the ones heard in the more misogynist corners of the internet.
Brooks herself didn’t comment on the Fusion story, but she did retweet it:
Though as we’ve considered before, perhaps “Bitch” was never the feminist anthem we wanted it to be. You can read the original piece, which goes into much more depth, over on Fusion.
