So, you know how Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West released that infamous video way back in 2016, and everybody called Taylor Swift a snake? And then this week we learned that the video was edited* and Taylor was right all along?
Taylor lied through her publicist who stated that "Kanye never called to ask for permission..."
Kanye never called to ask for permission...
Know what that "..." means? It means there's part of the quote being left out. It means that ONCE AGAIN, Kim appears to be picking and choosing pieces of the bigger picture in order to mislead people about what was actually said. Here's the actual, full, unedited statement that Taylor's PR team put out:
As you can see, her team is not saying the call didn’t happen, but they’re making VERY CLEAR what Kanye actually DID call about, and that he at no point asked Taylor if he could use the “I made that bitch famous” lyric.
And just for good measure, here are Taylor's own words that she posted on Twitter. Again, she doesn't deny that the phone call took place, which is what Kim just accused her of:
So, at this point, it’s just looking like Kim is deliberately editing quotes in an attempt to STILL try to make Taylor look like a liar and maintain her and Kanye's version of what happened.
Anyway, if Kim wants to address what was actually said instead of making a whole Twitter thread out of a seven-word misquote taken out of context, I'm happy to hear it.
