We can all thank (or blame) Twitter users @redligion for reviving the “famous” feud. On March 20, 2020, this account reportedly tweeted a previously unpublished 25-minute section of the notorious phone call between Taylor Swift and Kanye West. The long clip seems to swing public opinion in Swift’s favor until Kim Kardashian goes on the defensive.
“To be clear, the only problem I ever had in this situation was that Taylor lied to her publicist who said that ‘Kanye never called to ask permission …’ You said clearly so I let you all see that, ”said Kardashian tweeted. “Nobody has ever denied that the word ‘b *** h’ was used without their permission.”
Then Tree Paine jumped into the fray, tweeting: “I am Taylor’s publicist and this is my original UNEDITED statement. By the way, if you take out parts, it is a processing. ”She also attached a red-hot burn:“ P.S., who did you piss at to lick the video? ”Paine even finished the note with laughing emojis. (Oh no, didn’t she?) Oh yes, she did.
Fans will recognize Paine from Miss Americana, the 2020 Netflix documentary about Swift. Paine was at the center of a central scene from 2018 when Swift decided to make her political views public, and she was with Swift during several intense moments in the singer’s career.
