Country Singer Shania Twain Mocked Online After Trying To Take Back Trump Endorsement: 'You Don't Impress Us Much'

On Sunday night, Twain took to Twitter to take back her Trump endorsement and apologized to fans whom she may have offended.

Singer Shania Twain over the weekend said that she likely would have backed Donald Trump's presidential campaign had she been eligible to vote in 2016 -- a statement that she quickly regretted after sparking a backlash from her own fans.

The Canadian Twain originally told the Guardian that Trump "seemed honest" compared to rival candidate Hillary Clinton, even though she admitted that he was "offensive."

However, on Sunday evening Twain took to Twitter to take back her Trump endorsement and apologized to fans whom she may have offended.

"I would like to apologise to anybody I have offended in a recent interview with the Guardian relating to the American President," she wrote. "The question caught me off guard. As a Canadian, I regret answering this unexpected question without giving my response more context. "I am passionately against discrimination of any kind and hope it’s clear from the choices I have made, and the people I stand with, that I do not hold any common moral beliefs with the current President."

However, many of Twain's followers weren't buying her retraction -- and many of them even quoted lyrics from her own songs to mock her.
