Kim Kardashian Fires Back At Critics After Leaked Video; Taylor Swift Responds
If you’ve been keeping up with celebrity news on top of the ongoing battle against COVID-19, you would have seen that, after 4 years, the truth about the whole Taylor Swift – Kim Kardashian – Kanye West feud surrounding his song “Famous”, has been brought to light via a 25-minute clip of the call. People have been waiting to see what the celebs involved would say, but they’ve remained relatively mum. Until now.
Kim Kardashian went off on Twitter, in a series of 9 different tweets.
In the leaked video, West can be heard asking for Swift’s approval over the lyrics of the song, albeit with the line “Taylor Swift might owe me sex” instead of “might still have sex,” and with no mention of the word “bitch.” Swift’s initial claim through her rep, however, was that “Kanye did not call for approval of the song,” and that “she declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message,”. And thus, to clarify on why she had posted the initial 3-minute clip on Snapchat that was the catalyst to this whole debacle…

Yowza. Well, Taylor herself has addressed the leak in her Instagram stories – and in doing so, she’s reminded us of what’s really important.
The link in Swifts stories would send her followers to the website for Feeding America, the non-profit network of food banks aiding those impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. “The World Health Organization and Feeding America are some of the organizations I’ve been donating to. If you have the ability to, please join me in donating during this crisis,” she added.
And for those that are lashing out at Kim for not using her platform to help with the pandemic, as Swift has done, she actually has. Taking to Instagram, she announced that her line Skims “will be restocking our most-loved Cotton collection and donating 20% of the drops profits to @Baby2baby’s COVID-19 Emergency Response Program to support their mission to provide basic essentials to children and families in need”.
