Megyn Kelly is calling for fans to boycott Taylor Swift after the singer attended a comedy night in Brooklyn that donated proceeds to a charity working in Gaza.

Kelly Calls For Boycott Of Swift

Daily Mail reported that Kelly mocked Swift for claiming to support women’s rights and the LGBTQ community, yet still backing a Gaza charity.

“You clearly know nothing,” Kelly said, addressing Swift directly in her rant. “You know what they do to that community in Gaza, Taylor, that you now want to support?”

“You know what Hamas likes to do to women?” she added. “You think we have equal rights over there, Taylor?”

Last Friday, Swift, 34, was spotted at a Ramy Youssef show at the Brooklyn Academy of Music with friends that included the actress Selena Gomez, Cara Delevingne and Zoe Kravitz. Youssef had previously announced that proceeds from the last 12 nights of his “More Feelings” tour would go to the American Near East Refugee Aid (ANERA).

Kelly described ANERA as being “highly political, presenting a highly biased view of the Israel/Palestine war, ignoring any Palestinian responsibility for hardship, and contributing to the demonization of Israel.”

“That is the group Taylor Swift thought it might be fun to help raise money for, attend a fundraiser for, and she owes Israelis and Jewish Americans an apology,” Kelly concluded. “And I hope they boycott her events until she issues it because attending this thing was wrong. It was wrong.”

Swift’s Deafening Silence On Israel

Swift has yet to comment on any of the backlash she’s received for attending this event. Swift also has not commented publicly at all about the conflict between Israel and Hamas, who murdered and kidnapped hundreds of Israelis in terrorist attacks carried out on October 7.

Newsweek reported that after Swift was named Time’s Person of the Year last week, some said that her silence about Israel meant that she did not deserve this honor.

“I’m a massive Taylor Swift fan, and you can make the argument that pop stars shouldn’t need to speak out about war/conflict/genocide (I disagree but you can argue this),” one social media user commented. “But Taylor has defined herself as someone who now speaks out on issues, even if it costs her.”

“Taylor must feel something about the ongoing humanitarian catastrophe in Gaza,” the user continued. “Her silence is an active choice and it betrays the image of herself that she created.”

Swift’s Liberal Politics

While Swift has been silent about the Israel-Hamas conflict, she’s been all too happy to preach about liberal causes as a proud Democrat in the past. Back in 2020, she accused then-President Donald Trump of trying to “blatantly cheat” to win the election.

“Donald Trump’s ineffective leadership gravely worsened the crisis that we are in, and he is now taking advantage of it to subvert and destroy our right to vote and vote safely. Request a ballot early. Vote early,” she said at the time, according to Fox News. “We will vote you out in November.”

It’s always rich when liberals like Swift who claim to stand for women and LGBTQ people support Hamas, which is perhaps the most anti-feminist and anti-LGBTQ group on the planet. In the end, Swift shouldn’t be surprised if Kelly’s calls for a boycott do end up coming true.
