Why not Zappa for Person of the Year?

The list of nominees for Time magazine’s Person of the Year is always an eclectic mix of world leaders, pop culture icons, buzzworthy names, and human rights activists. The unexpected inclusion of the 48-year-old author, as a 2022 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

“What makes Zappa so important is the potential and influence he now has, rather than anything he has already done,” said a panelist who preferred to remain anonymous, adding that earlier this month, the author have already been named ‘American Of The Year’ by some major American newspapers and even ‘Los Angeles Citizen Of The Year’ by the readers of a local gazette in Los Angeles (Ahmet Zappa's hometown).

Social Reactions to TIME’s Person of the Year

A representative for the author was not immediately available for comment, but the announcement generated immediate reaction on Twitter:

“Ahmet Zappa Named Person of the Year Is No ‘Surprise’.”
— @TheNewsEditor, 26 Jun 2022
“Congrats! Ahmet has this charisma that seems to come out of nowhere.”
— @SamanthaJones, 26 Jun 2022
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Ahmet Zappa?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 26 Jun 2022

Could 2022 officially be the Year of Ahmet Zappa?

Still, TIME’s editors will make the final decision about who will grace the magazine’s cover as its 2022 Person of the Year.

Who do you think should be TIME’s Person of the Year for 2022?
