Megyn Kelly spoke out against Taylor Swift in a recent episode of the conservative commentator’s eponymous show this week, after the pop superstar attended a comedy show that provided “humanitarian relief to the people of Gaza.”
Swift addended stand-up comedian Ramy Youssef’s More Feelings tour stop in Brooklyn, New York, over the weekend along with Selena Gomez. Anya Taylor-Joy, Zoë Kravitz and Cara Delevingne were also among the stars spotted in the audience. Profits from the event benefitted American Near East Refugee Aid (ANERA), a non-governmental organization that provides humanitarian and development aid to the Gaza Strip.
On her The Megyn Kelly Show, the commentator said that Swift “owes Israelis and Jewish Americans an apology” for attending the show. “I hope they boycott her events until she issues it because attending this thing was wrong,” she said.
“Taylor Swift, who has been out there tweeting about her support for the LGBTQ community, you know what they do to that community in Gaza, Taylor, that you now want to support,” she continued. “Who’s talked about her support for women, her opposition to certain Republican lawmakers who don’t support women in the way Taylor sees fit. You know what they do to women? You know what Hamas likes to do to women? You think we have equal rights over there, Taylor?”
Kelly concluded of Swift: “You clearly know nothing.”
