Last week, 50 Cent created a huge controversy when expressing his support for US President Donald Trump, but he is just one of many celebrities who are sticking their necks out to put the power of their platforms behind the sitting president. Many of them, like Ted Nugent or James Woods will come as no surprise to anyone, but some of these names are a bit shocking, such as punk rock legend Johnny Rotten.
Each of these celebrities offer different reasons for their political leanings, and some of them don’t give any reason at all. However, all of these people are millionaires, so they share some of the same class concerns, as 50 Cent noted last week when he expressed his frustration with Biden’s tax plan for the wealthy.
Below are a few of the celebrities who have voiced support for Donald Trump.
1. Kelsey Grammer
