Taylor Swift Responds To The Kanye Call By Asking Fans To Donate To COVID-19 Relief Instead

Taylor Swift has asked fans to focus on what “really matters” on Instagram, in her first statement since that *full* video leaked. And let me just say, it absolutely whips ass.

“Instead of answering those who are asking how I feel about the video footage that leaked, proving that I was telling the truth the whole time about *that call* (you know the one that was illegally recorded, that somebody edited and manipulated in order to frame me and put me, my family, and fans through hell for 4 years)… SWIPE UP to see what really matters”.

“The World Health Organisation and Feeding America are some of the organisations I’ve been donating to,” she continued in the next slide. “If you have the ability to, please join in donating during this crisis.”

The WHO has set up a COVID-19 response, the“Solidarity Response Fund”, which supports the organisation and its partners in their effort to help countries prevent, detect, and manage the virus. Lean more about the fund, right here.

Now I’m sure you already know this, but just in case you don’t / have forgotten, let’s take a walk down memory lane. In 2016, Kim Kardashian West leaked edited snippets of the phone call onto her Snapchat account. In said phone call, Kanye West asks Taylor to release his new song on her Twitter account. “So my next single, I wanted you to tweet it … so that’s why I’m calling you. I wanted you to put the song out,” he said.

Kanye also told Taylor he included a “very controversial line” in the tune, which he said was, “‘I feel like Taylor Swift might owe me sex.’” Taylor was okay with this and the song was released. As Taylor said at the time, Kanye hadn’t told her about the other lyrics, “‘I made that bitch famous’”, which Taylor was not okay with. And you can fill in the rest.

Kim hasn’t explicitly responded to the full phone call, although she did like a tweet calling the video “nothing new”.
