Abigail Shapiro is the sister of Ben Shapiro, the American columnist, conservative political commentator, author, media personality, attorney, and businessman. She is an American YouTuber, blogger, conservative social media influencer, and opera singer. Known online as Classically Abby, Abigail came into the limelight in 2020 as a result of her YouTube video titled Conservative Women, It’s Our Time || Let’s take the culture back.
On the other hand, her brother, Ben Shapiro, rose to fame in his teenage years as celebrated in some quarters for being the youngest nationally syndicated columnist in America. Ben has authored multiple books and is the founder of the conservative news website and media company, The Daily Wire.
Ben’s fame has rubbed off on his sister, Abigail, but she is also famous in her own right. Like her older brother, Abigail has taken to expressing her conservative views with no care of how distasteful the public might regard it. Because of this, she is often trolled online but Abby doesn’t seem to really care.
She believes women like her are the backbone of the American society as they fight for values that are right in a country that has gone crazy with its quest for liberty. While many people have accused Abby of having internalized misogyny, she has a lot of admirers as evidenced by the thousands of followers she has on her social media pages.
Abigail Shapiro Was Born Into a Conservative Jewish Family
Abigail Shapiro’s brother first schooled at Walter Reed Middle School in Studio City, Los Angeles, before he transferred to Yeshiva University High School of Los Angeles, where he completed his high school education at the age of 16. Thereafter, he proceeded to the University of California, Los Angeles, where he obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science before attending Harvard Law School. Unfortunately, such details are not known about his sister Abigail Shapiro; we can only tell she attended the Manhattan School of Music and has three degrees in operatic performance.
Abigail is of Lithuanian-Jewish and Rusian-Jewish ancestry. She was born and raised in Los Angeles to parents who are both members of the entertainment industry. Her father is a composer while her mother is an executive of a TV company. Much of her early life and upbringing are yet to be uncovered, but we can confirm she was born into a Conservative Jewish family. From what we gathered, her family embraced Orthodox Judaism at some point, and she continues to practice the faith.
Given her family background, one does not have to ask questions about the source of her conservative views. Abby takes pride in describing herself as a “conservative influencer,” but this has not always been so. According to her, she was compelled to keep her conservative opinions to herself because of the fear of being regarded as someone who does not care about the well-being of other women. However, she now seeks to encourage conservative women to cease being silent about their views and spread values she believes goes a long way in encouraging people to be better.
She is a Social Media Influencer, Makeup Artist, and an Opera Singer
Of late, Abigail Shapiro is mostly committed to being a conservative influencer. What this means is that most of her activities are channeled towards promoting the conservative lifestyle and creating a space for conservative women to express themselves without worrying about being judged.
To actualize her dreams, Abby has a YouTube channel called Classically Abby through which she shares her conservative political views and what have you. As of this writing, the channel created in January 2019 has accumulated over 14.8 million views with 95.7 thousand subscribers.
More than using the channel for her conservative commentary, she shares her opera music, beauty, and lifestyle tips on the platform. Abby is a trained opera singer, a fashion enthusiast, and a self-taught makeup artist who delights in sharing her knowledge and experiences with the public.
