Taylor Swift accepts Nikki Glaser's apology for the comedian's "asshat" comment that's featured in Miss Americana
In her new Netflix documentary, Miss Americana, Taylor Swift relives her ascension to fame and all the ugliness that came with it. In one portion of the film, Swift recalls what it was like to hear critique from media personalities regarding her weight, persona, and musical talent. The film showed a clip of comedian and actress Nikki Glaser sharing her negative two cents about Swift. And now, five years later, Glaser has apologized to Swift for her comment, and Swift was more than willing to accept her apology.
“She’s too skinny. It bothers me,” Glaser said at the time. Swift explained to filmmakers how these kinds of comments, paired with paparazzi photos of herself, led to her developing an eating disorder and feeling the need to take time away from the public.
Glaser then wrote that people have made the same negative comments about her and her weight. She said she knows how “terrible” it feels to hear such comments when you’re “struggling.”
Swift saw Glaser’s Instagram post, and reached out to show her appreciation for the apology.
She continued, “I’m so sorry to hear that you’ve struggled with some of the same things I’ve struggled with. Sending a massive hug.”
At the end of the day, Swift is not about to hold a grudge for something that was said about her years ago. As she stated in Miss Americana, she’s all about growing up, adjusting her views, and speaking her truth. We love this for both her and Nikki Glaser.
Remember, people: Women supporting women is the name of the game.
