Celebrities Back Away from Endorsing Biden: ‘Is It Even Worth It?’

Celebrities are reportedly backing away from endorsing Democrat President Joe Biden for re-election due to the increased scrutiny such a move would bring.

Biden trying to court Hollywood stars to back his presidential campaign in the tight 2024 race, a new report claims.

Earlier this week, Oscar-winning actor Robert De Niro humiliated himself while making an anti-Trump speech for the Biden campaign in New York.

De Niro’s divisive comments ended up angering the crowds who heckled the Hollywood star on the streets of New York City as he fled.

During Biden’s last run in 2020, several popular celebrities followed the “woke” herd to endorse Biden.

However, many celebrities are hesitant to do so this time around.

“It’s a different world than it was 10 years ago,” one celebrity publicist reportedly told CNN.

“You can’t make anyone happy. You can’t win.”

Celebrity insiders told CNN that tensions over Israel and the increased polarization in the country have left many stars wary to support Biden.

“Celebs feel, more than ever, that the perceived cost is higher,” a political strategist who advises celebrities added.

Is it even worth it?

At the same time, Biden’s campaign is eager to court these big names in the tight race, believing their endorsement closer to November could be crucial to his re-election.

“People know who Biden is,” campaign spokesperson Adrienne Elrod told CNN. “We need to make sure they’re delivering our message to their audiences during the most important time of the campaign.”

This week, actor Robert De Niro called on voters to reject Trump at a Biden campaign press conference that was disrupted by hecklers and protesters.

The campaign also announced a fundraiser in June with Julia Roberts and George Clooney, after hosting a glitzy celebrity fundraiser at Radio City Music Hall in March.

While big-name celebrities have long backed Democratic candidates, this year a few have already backed away from endorsing Biden after supporting him in 2020.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson revealed to Fox News in April that he regretted the division caused by his choice to back Biden in the last election.

“The endorsement that I made years ago with Biden was what I thought was the best decision for me at that time,” he said.

“Am I going to do that again this year? That answer’s no. I’m not going to do that,” he told Fox News host Will Cain.

“Because what I realized that what that caused back then was something that tears me up in my guts back then and now, which is division. And that got me.”

Rapper Cardi B recently admitted that she felt “disappointment” over Biden’s leadership and the high costs of living and would not be endorsing him this time around.

“I feel like people got betrayed,” she told Rolling Stone Magazine.

Liberal black radio host Charlamagne tha God has also refused to endorse President Biden this election.

In 2020, Charlamagne interviewed Biden when he made the infamous pitch to black voters, saying:

“If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”

As Slay News reported earlier, polls show the presidential race is nearly deadlocked, with President Donald Trump narrowly ahead of Biden.
