Taylor Swift’s Video Director Wades Into ‘Famous’ Feud
Taylor Swift has been compared to the late Nicole Brown Simpson.
The 26-year-old singer hit the headlines again when Kim Kardashian shared a video on her Snapchat that showed her husband Kanye West on the phone with Swift, apparently getting her approval for the lyrics in his track “Famous.”
Following the release of the footage, Swift released a statement insisting she was never told that West was going to refer to her as a “b***h” in the song, and never gave permission for him to do so.
Now video director Joseph Kahn, responsible for Swift’s star-studded “Bad Blood” video, has come out in defense of the singer in a series of controversial tweets.
Referring to Kardashian’s late father Robert Kardashian defending O.J. Simpson when the athlete was accused of murdering his estranged wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman, Joseph tweeted: “Ain’t the first time the Kardashians supported the murder of an innocent blonde woman.”
Simpson was found not guilty of the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Goldman, who were stabbed to death in 1994.
Kahn continued with his tweets by insisting Swift would never have approved the song if she had been made aware that West was going to call her a “b***h.”
“Kanye didn’t say the line ‘I made that b***h famous’ on the call,” he wrote. “It’s like saying ‘I want to love you’ without ‘in the a**.'”
When Kahn was attacked by many for making the comparison between Swift and murdered Nicole Brown Simpson, and for getting involved in the feud, he added: “Heads up: I give no f***s and never will. Thanks. Continue.”
He later added: “My tweets today going viral. The power of truth.”
Kahn isn’t the only friend of Swift’s to speak out on the feud. The singer’s best friend Abigail Anderson also caused controversy when she waded in by writing a now deleted prayer to Kardashian and West’s 3-year-old daughter North on her Twitter page.
“Lord, hear my prayers… I pray God helps your daughter understand, that despite how many times she’ll hear daddy reference all women as ‘b***hes,’ she isn’t one,” Anderson wrote on Twitter. “I pray she understands her father actually IS faithful to her mother, despite all the adulterous comments she will hear her father making.”
“I pray that she will understand ‘adultery and b***hes’ are just daddy’s form of art and not to worry because not every man thinks like him. Lastly, I pray for forgiveness. May God forgive you & your wife for doing to others the very things you pray are NEVER done to your daughter.”
Anderson deleted her tweets after claiming she had been subjected to death threats, but left a message saying she will “always stand by” her best friend.
