Celebrities Weigh In On Taylor Swift Vs. Kim Kardashian & Kanye West
The Internet is essentially one giant #KimExposedTaylorParty right now, only some stars tossed their RSVPs straight into the trash. Late Sunday night, after Kim Kardashian shared videos of a Kanye West/Taylor Swift phone call in which the singer-songwriter talks to Yeezy about his controversial "Famous" lyrics, Swift took to Twitter to share a screenshot of an iPhone note in which she stated that she had never heard the full song (and the "that b*tch" lyric in particular), lashing out at Kimye for what she claims is their "character assassination" of her. Since all of the drama unfolded, and continues to bring many people a silly escape from the real-life horrors of the world, sooo many celebs have weighed in on the Swift/Kimye feud. Seriously.
I guess it's because the whole thing is being played out so publicly on social media, but literally everyone from Selena Gomez to Chris Brown has thrown their hats into the ring, inserting their own two cents into what is now the biggest celebrity feud of 2016. Sometimes the celeb is vocal about who they're siding with, and sometimes the shade is a little more subtle.
Check out all of the celebs who have weighed in on T. Swift vs. Kimye below.
It's no surprise that Gomez immediately rushed to her best friend's defense, tweeting out a series of messages about more important things we could focus on:
She was later dragged on social media after allegedly responding to a fan who pointed out that she herself had not spoken out about #BlackLivesMatter or police brutality. Bustle has reached out to Gomez's rep for comment on the alleged posted-and-deleted tweet, but has not yet received a response.
Chloë Grace Moretz
CGM isn't necessarily #TeamTaylor, but she certainly seems to be anti-Kardashian. She's also one who would rather focus on bigger issues happening in the world:
Which leads us to...
Clearly, Khloé takes her sister and brother-in-law's side here. But she, an actual adult, also went in on Moretz, tweeting a truly awful response to the 19-year-old actor that involved sharing a photo of what she believed to be Moretz's bare behind exposed by a wayward bikini bottom. Kardashian later explained the tweet — which has not yet been deleted — by saying that she has an "animal instinct" to protect her family.
The Orange Is the New Black actor is friends with Swift; this we know from the "Out of the Woods" singer's epic 4th of July bash. But Rose was more focused on Khloé's takedown of CGM, absolutely disgusted that the reality star would tweet such a thing:
Demi Lovato threw some more subtle shade, liking a tweet praising Kardashian for exposing Swift:
Zendaya, a one-time member of the squad (and "Bad Blood" music video star) allegedly liked and un-liked some shady tweets:
Bustle has reached out to a rep for Zendaya regarding the claim she liked the tweets, but has not yet received a response.
Pharrell also allegedly liked and un-liked a tweet about the situation. Bustle has reached out to his rep, as well, but has not yet received a response.
Chris Brown also allegedly responded to the whole thing. Twitter account Pop Crave posted a screenshot alleging Brown wrote as a comment on a BallerAlert Instagram showing a screenshot of Swift's statement, "Oh NO… Someone said something I don’t like,, OUCH, MY P*SSY HURT. Make music and shut the f*ck up."
Bustle has reached out to Brown's rep, but has not yet received a response.
T. Swift #SquadMember Martha Hunt was also one to encourage others to recognize the importance of bigger world problems:
The usually controversial Wendy Williams was surprisingly #TeamNoOne — or at least slightly #TeamTaylor — when she analyzed the situation, according to E! News.
"OK, so what has been exposed is what Kanye has said all along. That he talked to Taylor about the song and that he was going to include her in it. What he didn't tell her is that the last line, 'I made the B-famous,'" she said according to the site.
"Sometimes you don't mind being called the 'B' in the right context. Like if you're wrist are above your head," she joked. "Other times... women, we can't have it both ways but we do. Kind of like the 'N' word. You know how black people throw around the 'N' word and it's cool sometimes, according to some black people, and not cool other times, you know? The same with the 'B' word with women everywhere."
The 2 Broke Girls star added her own two cents to the mix by responding to a tweet about the whole thing:
And last, but certainly not least, we have what is probably the most well-timed promotional tweet of all time:
