On “The Megyn Kelly Show,” she insisted that Swift owes Israelis and Jewish Americans an apology and should be boycotted until she issues one.
Megyn Kelly recently called for a boycott of Taylor Swift after the pop star attended a fundraiser supporting humanitarian relief for Gaza. Swift’s participation in stand-up comedian Ramy Youssef’s “More Feelings” tour, benefiting the American Near East Refugee Aid (ANERA), drew criticism from Kelly, who claimed ANERA is highly political and presents a biased view of the Israel-Palestine conflict.
On “The Megyn Kelly Show,” she insisted that Swift owes Israelis and Jewish Americans an apology and should be boycotted until she issues one. Kelly expressed concern about ANERA’s alleged bias in ignoring Palestinian responsibility for hardship.
However, ANERA’s website emphasizes that it does not work with or coordinate with Hamas, designated by the US government as a terrorist group. Swift’s attendance at the fundraiser led Kelly to urge her to do more research about the situation in Gaza and suggested Swift should refrain from discussing the issue until she is better informed.
Swift’s loyal fanbase, known as Swifties, defended her on social media, highlighting that she attended a comedy show and suggesting that credit for the fundraising efforts should go to Youssef, who organized the event.
