Russell Simmons is now Team Hillary: Which Presidential Candidate Celebs are Backing




By: Evette Champion

Who are you voting for in November? The candidates are dwindling down and the three most popular candidates,  Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and everyone’s favorite, Donald Trump are scooping up some surprising celebrity supporters. Here’s some of the most “oh… Really?” celebrity endorsements:

Hillary Clinton:

Will Ferrell is backing Hillary Clinton, although he originally stood behind Bernie Sanders, although it is unclear of why Ferrell switched camps. Others who support Hillary Clinton include:

  • Snoop Dogg believes that it is necessary to have a woman’s perspective in the White House.
  • 50 Cent told The Daily Beast that he’s “all-in for Hillary 2016.”
  • Elizabeth Banks tweeted: “Hell Yaaas. Proud supporter of @HillaryClinton. One radical woman.”
  • Kelly Clarkson said in a Rolling Stone Interview: . “I’m a fan of Hillary. She’s badass.”
  • Russell Simmons tweeted (in regards to Clinton):


Vivica A. Foxx, Morgan Freeman, Jamie Foxx, Magic Johnson, and John Legend are also backing Clinton.



Bernie Sanders: 

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar hasn’t officially announced that he is supporting Bernie Sanders, but he has openly commended Sanders on how he conducts his campaign, especially when it is compared to Trump’s bullying tactics. Others who are on the Sanders train include:

  • Zoe Kravitz made a video where she announced who she was going to vote for.
  • Director, Spike Lee, said: “When Bernie gets into the White House, he will do the right thing.”
  • Ronda Rousey chooses Sanders because “he doesn’t take any corporate money.”
  • Mia Farrow tweeted: “Bernie Sanders is pretty great. He doesn’t pander, is consistent and clear on important issues.”


Donald Trump: 

When it comes to controversy, no other candidate sparks as much as the Donald and his racist remarks. So it’s surprising when minorities openly endorse the man.

Terrell Owens is endorsing Trump, but we have to wonder if that is because he was on Trump’s reality show, The Celebrity Apprentice.

Others Trump supporters include:

  • Hulk Hogan, who actually wants to be Trump’s running mate.
  • Dennis Rodman considers Trump a “great friend” and has tweeted: “We don’t need another politician, we need a businessman like Mr. Trump!”
  • Anthony Mackie told BET: “I’m on the bandwagon. I’m drinking the Kool-Aid.”
  • Gary Busey believes Trump “can change the country after the last eight years.”

We all know Gary Busey isn’t the most with it characters, so we wonder which direction he thinks Trump can change the nation…


So, who will you be voting for? Are you surprised by who some of these celebs are backing?
