Supporters of Tennessee Senator-elect Marsha Blackburn called out Taylor Swift after Blackburn’s victory over the singer’s preferred candidate, former Gov. Phil Bredesen.

Back in October, Swift publicly rebuked Blackburnand endorsed Bredesen in an Instagram post. “Her voting record in Congress appalls and terrifies me,” she said.

Twitter was full of users mocking the 28-year-old pop superstar for her choice in the race.

Taylor Swift’s streak of terrible choices in men continues. https://twitter.com/ChadPergram/status/1059989357816434688

Fox projects that Republican Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn will defeat former Democratic Governor Phil Bredesen to replace retiring GOP Senator Bob Corker.

Several others pointed to not giving celebrity endorsements so much attention going forward.

I can’t believe Taylor Swift didn’t bring the Tennessee Senate race closer. 🙄

Can we stop hyping celebrity endorsements going forward? They certainly aren’t effective and seem to just energize the other side.

With Taylor Swift having no real impact on the Tennessee Senate race, could we have a bit less breathless coverage of celebrities and their alleged ability to move votes in the next election cycle?

Earlier in the day on Tuesday, Bredesen shared a picture of him after voting and tagged Swift in it.
