Democratic Presidential candidate Kamala Harris joined Katy Perry, Ariana Grande and Demi Lovato at a fundraising event in Scooter Braun’s house in Los Angeles. Many Taylor Swift fans have denounced Kamala’s decision to attend the event because they think Braun is arrogant and bigoted. To some this is surprising given Taylor Swift’s support for Kamala Harris; however, Taylor Swift dislikes Scooter Braun and has used social media to describe her conflicts with him. On Tumblr Swift claimed to have been bullied by Scooter Braun for years. There were roughly 100 guests in attendance and only a few of them made social media posts about the event.
Other democratic candidates are getting money from Hollywood celebrities too. Pete Buttigieg, Elizabeth Warren and Cory Booker have all gotten Hollywood money recently. Bernie Sanders is avoiding financial support from wealthy citizens, seeking instead to be funded by small donations from non-wealthy Americans. Time will tell how the issue of campaign finance affects the election next year.
