Since Politico published a leaked version of a Supreme Court majority decision draft potentially overturning Roe v. Wade, many mainstream celebrities have come forward to publicly state their support for abortion rights. Harry Styles posted in support of Roe v. Wade on his instagram stories, Phoebe Bridgers spoke movingly about having had her own abortion while on tour, and Olivia Rodrigo spoke out against the Supreme Court’s decision on her Sour tour. One class of public figures that has not taken a stand either in support of or against the decision, however, is influencers, who have largely stuck to posting pics from the Met Gala or hair gummy spon con in lieu of weighing in on the abortion rights debate.
This week on Don’t Let This Flop, Rolling Stone‘s podcast about internet culture cohosted by Brittany Spanos and Ej Dickson, we contacted more than 20 top-tier Instagram and TikTok influencers to see if they would make a statement on abortion rights in the United States. The list, culled together from top 20 lists on Forbes and Hollywood Branded, included the names of such luminaries as Charli D’Amelio, Addison Rae, Bella Poarch, David Dobrik, Emma Chamberlain, and PewDiePie.
