Demi Lovato was not pleased to see that Donald Trump was the runner-up for TIME Magazine’s Person of the Year, especially considering the publication named the “Silence Breakers” as the honorees.

The cover of the magazine features Ashley Judd, Taylor Swift and several others who spoke out about their experiences of sexual harassment and abuse. Lovato was likely pleased with that decision, but she saw the move to make Trump the runner-up hypocritical, E! News reports.

“I’ve become less vocal about my distain for certain people over the past year because it only divides our country even more but this is worth speaking up about. @TIME mag – very disappointed in your hypocrisy and disrespect toward the women on your cover,” Lovato wrote.

“To be named POTY by @TIME it should be for doing something positive or brave LIKE the women on the cover,” she continued. “It’s annoying that it’s just about impact on the news. Time mag highlights brave women coming forward against sexual assault on the cover but names a man with sexual assault allegations against him runner up to person of the year.. Really @TIME? #hypocrites.”

More than a dozen women have accused the president of sexual harassment or assault–many of which spoke out leading up to the presidential election. He has denied all of the allegations against him.
