AceShowbiz - Michael Rapaport has inserted himself in the drama that sees Taylor Swift going against Kim Kardashian and her husband Kanye West. The actor recently weighed in on the feud in a curse-filled Twitter rant, letting everyone know that he's on team Taylor.
"Kim Kardashian, KK, Koko, whoever the f** are you. No one cares. Nobody gives a f**k about this bulls**t with you and Taylor Swift. .... The only one is still talking about it is you. Do you think we're dumb? The only reason you're talking about it is because your show is premiering Thursday, and you're sub promoting your show without promoting it," he said in the clip.
"Why are you worrying about ratings? We have nothing to f***ing do. We have nothing to f***ing do. We're all gonna be home and watch it whether we want it or not," the comedian added. "We’re gonna watch you, your mom, and your sisters galavant around with your revolving body parts."
He went on talking about Kanye's headline making action at the 2009 VMAs in which he snatched Taylor's mic onstage during her speech, telling everyone that Beyonce Knowles was more deserving of the Best Female Video trophy. "Tell your husband next time he wants to snatch an award from somebody, do it to a man. Do it to a guy. Do it to the Wu-Tang Clan. Do it to one of those dudes from the Red Hot Chili Peppers."
Taylor and Kanye's feud was first reignited in 2016 after the "Black Skinhead" spitter included the lyrics, "I made that b***h famous," on his song "Famous". Taylor felt disrespected and called him out over that, but both Kanye and his wife Kim insisted that the 30-year-old singer/songwriter had given him her permission. Kim even posted a video of their phone call and dubbed Taylor a "snake."
However, the full version of the phone call seemed to back up Taylor's claim. Responding to the leaked video, the country-turned-pop star said on her Instagram Stories that it only proves "that I was telling the truth the whole time about *that call*." She additionally stressed that the call "was illegally recorded," "edited and manipulated in order to frame me and put me, my family, and fans through hell for 4 years."
Kim then fired back at the singer on her Twitter account, accusing her of being self-serving comments amid the coronavirus pandemic. The reality TV star went on accusing Taylor of lying about Kanye never asking for her permission to release the song.
