Meghan Trainor Responds to Australian Ad Using Her Face to Denounce Marriage Equality

Thursday Aug 24, 2017

Singer Meghan Trainor took to Twitter Wednesday to denounce an Australian ad that used her image to encourage people in the country to vote against legalizing marriage equality, the Guardian reports.

The photo was initially shared on Facebook but has since been deleted. Twitter user @melanie_mogs took a screen shot of the pic and tweeted it to Trainor, 23. The ad shows the pop star's face next to the text: "My vote is NO you need to let it go." The slogan references Trainor's hit "No."

"Did you realise that your face was being used in Australian anti gay marriage propaganda??" the Twitter user wrote to the Grammy Award winner.

Once it was brought to her attention, Trainor responded, denouncing the ad and stating her support for same-sex marriage.

She also urged Australians to enroll in the upcoming marriage quality postal survey on Instagram.

Organizers of the page that shared the photo in question spoke with the Guardian, saying the image was removed once they realized the mistake.

"We apologise to Meghan Trainor and her support base if this has caused any angst or distress," they said. "We had no idea who the person in the meme was ... We note Meghan Trainor supports marriage equality and we respect her right to her opinion on the matter."

Trainor isn't the only celeb to support marriage equality down under. Australian actor Chris Hemsworth also offered his support, as well as Miley Cyrus, Troye Sivan, Ellen DeGeneres and more.
