Why not Hightower 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 29-year-old dancer, as a 2019 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

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

Social Reactions to TIME’s Person of the Year

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

“#HightowerPOY. Logical choice though I wouldn't have made the same one.”

“Congrats! Chelsie has this charisma that seems to come out of nowhere.”
— @SamanthaJones, 20 Feb 2019
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Chelsie Hightower?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 20 Feb 2019

Could 2019 officially be the Year of Chelsie Hightower?

Still, TIME’s editors will make the final decision about who will grace the magazine’s cover as its 2019 Person of the Year.

Who do you think should be TIME’s Person of the Year for 2019?
