Being BFFs with Taylor Swift and trying to defend her honor is costing Selena Gomez big time! Fans slammed Selena on Twitter after she used curse words to distract fans from Taylor Swift Kim Kardashian feud. Some said her career is now gone.
Selena Gomez has got herself entangled in a bad situation because she was trying to defend her best friend’s reputation on social media. The hate that was being directed at Taylor Swift is now being directed at Selena Gomez as well.
Taylor Swift & Kanye West Feud
It all started with Kanye West’s “Famous” music video, which only showcases a Taylor Swift look-alike posing naked on a bed among an array of other celebrities but also refers to the country-singer as “that b***h”
This spurred much heat from Taylor Swift’s reps regarding the use of degrading language while referring to her. Kim Kardashian, in an attempt to save her husband from defamation charges, gave an interview with GQ claiming that there is no reason for Taylor to get hyper about this matter since she had heard and approved of the lyrics to “Famous” beforehand.
To confirm these accusations, GQ reached out to Taylor’s team who claimed, “Kanye West never played the song for Taylor Swift. Taylor heard it for the first time when everyone else did and was humiliated.”
Kim Kardashian Slams Taylor Swift
The feud soon turned into a tennis match, with both parties volleying smashes at each other. Kim went on Snapchat to post a video recording of Kanye talking to Taylor and seeking her approval for a particular line in his “Famous”, reports Independent. Taylor was seen replying in the affirmative and even agreeing to play along and tell the media that she knew about the lyrics way before the song released.
Taylor immediately took to Twitter to express her outrage. After making it clear that she was not informed of the fact that Kanye would be using curse words when referring to her name, she also wrote that she was unaware that her conversation with the rapper was being recorded.
“While I wanted to be supportive of Kanye on the phone call, you cannot ‘approve’ a song you haven’t heard. Being falsely painted as a liar when I was never given the full story or played any part of the song is character assassination,” wrote Taylor.
Selena Gomez Twitter Haters
Selena Gomez, after her nose out of Taylor-Kanye-Kim feud, finally intervened today, calling out the fans who were adding fuel to the already big enough fire.
“There are more important things to talk about… Why can’t people use their voice for something that f—— matters? Truth is last thing we need right now is hate, in any form,” she wrote on her Twitter page, reports PEOPLE.
This message was not received on a positive note by the fans, as Selena Gomez had originally hoped. The fans slammed her desperate attempt to distract people from talking about her best friend in a negative light.
Fans also debated whether Selena Gomez had been practicing what she just preached. Many claimed she has not even said antyhing about the recent police shootings. Gomez quickly responded to these criticisms as well, stating that she would not be able to change a thing by “picking a side” and using a “hashtag.”
Most of the hate directed towards her comments also seemed to have generated from the fact that the singer “swore” for the first time on a global platform.
Meanwhile, the fans cannot wait to see Kim’s retaliation to Taylor’s Twitter message! What do you think it could be?
