Look, just because *gestures around* all of this is happening right now that doesn’t mean you can’t take a second out of your day to get angry at Kim Kardashian for being a clueless, out of touch dummy. In fact, it might be a little cathartic for you to do so. Take your mind off things for a bit, ya know?
See, yesterday I covered Taylor Swift’s response to that tape being leaked, which vindicated her from being a snake and a liar. She rightfully pointed out that there’s other s*it going on right now and rather than dwell on an almost 4-year-old nothingburger of a feud, maybe you should donate to a food bank if you can? (She’s right you know…)
Well, Kim Kardashian is having none of your charity and goodwill and wants you to know that Taylor Swift is a LIAR, OK? A damn LIAR!
.@taylorswift13 has chosen to reignite an old exchange - that at this point in time feels very self-serving given the suffering millions of real victims are facing right now.— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) March 24, 2020
Once she posted that and saw she was getting her ass handed to her in the comments, she decided to go on the Twitter-equivalent of a verbal vomit tour, which I’ll post some of, here:
I didn’t feel the need to comment a few days ago, and I’m actually really embarrassed and mortified to be doing it right now, but because she continues to speak on it, I feel I’m left without a choice but to respond because she is actually lying.— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) March 24, 2020
I never edited the footage (another lie) - I only posted a few clips on Snapchat to make my point and the full video that recently leaked doesn’t change the narrative.— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) March 24, 2020
To add, Kanye as an artist has every right to document his musical journey and process, just like she recently did through her documentary.— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) March 24, 2020
Finally, are you ready for the kicker??
This will be the last time I speak on this because honestly, nobody cares.— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) March 24, 2020
Sorry to bore you all with this. I know you are all dealing with more serious and important matters.
“I know you all are dealing with more serious and important matters.” (Emphasis mine.)
Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow.
Look, I’m one of the rare people who don’t take a particular delight in bashing the Kardashians because spending time to hate on someone seems like a lot of effort, and of all the people to direct anger towards, they are very low on my list. Definitely behind the jerk who punched me in 2nd grade for no reason, OK?
However—how f*cking tone deaf do you have to be by putting a global catastrophe at your follower’s feet and admitting it’s something they are dealing with, and by omission, not you!?
Taylor Swift, who I might add did not release that tape via her official channels, it just leaked on its own, turned this distraction from what’s going on in the world into something that will help people by promoting donations to the WHO and Feeding America. Kim Kardashian, on the other hand, is saying that we’re basically on our own and Taylor Swift is still a liar, and now has spent more time commenting on it than Taylor did herself.
There is no mention of donating on her most recent posts. In fact, the only mention of helping people out during this unprecedented time in the world is this:
Yup, if you buy her s*it 20 percent of net profits will go to charity.
Does Kim K. have to donate in this time of need? Nope. She does not.
Doe it make her look petty, tacky, and all-around horrible that her response, after Taylor specifically directed people to stop talking about it, and donate to worthy causes, is to simply talk about it and not say “Taylor is right, we should all donate to worthy causes that help right now?” Yes.
Even if she doesn’t give a s*it about anyone, it’s bad optics. Kim K. should know better by now. She’s been in this game far too long to know you can’t respond to someone saying “donate to charity” with “let me tell you about this bitch…”
Friends, I never thought I’d say this unironically, but man, I am Team Taylor on this one. How about you?
