Taylor Swift responds to Nikki Glaser’s apology for calling singer ‘too skinny’
Taylor Swift has accepted the apology stand-up comic Nikki Glaser offered Friday after the funny lady was featured in her new Netflix documentary “Miss Americana” body shaming the pop superstar.
“Wow. I appreciate this so much,” Swift said in regards to Glaser’s lengthy Instagram apology. “One of the major themes of the doc is that we have the ability to change our opinions over time, to grow, to learn about ourselves. I’m so sorry to hear that you’ve struggled with some of the same things I’ve struggled with. Sending a massive hug.”
Within her note to Swift, Glaser admitted to “projecting” her insecurities onto the songwriter when she quipped that Swift was “too skinny” and only hangs out with models.
“This quote should be used as an example of ‘projection’ in PSYCH101 textbooks,” she confessed. “If you’re familiar with my ‘work’ at all, you know I talk openly about battling some kind of eating disorder for the past 17 years. I was probably ‘feeling fat’ that day and was jealous. Also, I’ve had people say the same s–t about me being too skinny before and know how terrible it feels to hear that when you’re struggling.”
