Kim Kardashian urged to apologize to Taylor Swift as fans 'lose so much respect'

Taylor Swift was named Time Magazine’s Person of the Year 2023. The 33-year-old revealed some of the most important moments in her career in an interview with the publication. The interview, released on December 6, sees the singer reflect on a time when her career endured a “death,” after drama involving Kanye West and his ex-wife, Kim Kardashian.

Taylor Swift calls out Kim Kardashian

Upon being named Time’s Person of the Year in 2023, Taylor told stories of how she started out in the music industry and the many setbacks she has faced along the way.

Taylor has achieved worldwide fame and accumulated a net worth in the billions since releasing her first album in 2006.

But, she explained to Time she experienced the “death” of her career, and was “taken down psychologically to a place she’d never been before” after the video scandal with Kim and Kanye.

Taylor named Kim in the interview and described the situation as a “fully manufactured frame job” with an “illegally recorded phone call” that the Kardashians star “edited and then put out to say to everyone that I was a liar.”

Swifties urge Kim to apologize

Following Taylor’s mention of how the 2016 scandal affected her, many of her fans have taken to Kim’s Instagram posts to urge her to “apologize.”

Writing in the comments section of Kim’s recent posts, people said: “Time to apologize,” and “I love you but we need a real apology for Tay Tay…”

More commented they had “lost respect” for Kim, and others left snake emojis on the mom-of-four’s page. Kim herself had included snake emojis when she wrote about the drama on Twitter at the time.

Kim tweeted on the scandal years back

The video ‘editing’ scandal is being brought to light again this year. But, Kim hasn’t spoken on the subject for some time.

The last she tweeted about it was back in 2020. After a 10-tweet run, Kim concluded with the words: “This will be the last time I speak on this because honestly, nobody cares.”

“Sorry to bore you all with this. I know you are all dealing with more serious and important matters.”

Kim stood by her word that she hadn’t “edited” the videos and added she was “forced to defend” her then-husband.

The full transcript of Kim’s tweets can be seen in a 2020 report from The LA Times.
