This Golden Globes moment caused Megyn Kelly to blast Taylor Swift

Jan 19, 2024

Mega pop star Taylor Swift can’t stay out of the news.

Everyone in the spotlight attracts controversy and criticism, but sometimes, it is well deserved.

Because Megyn Kelly just blasted Taylor Swift for making a “wrong move” in a controversial Golden Globes moment.

Conservative talk show host Megyn Kelly ripped into pop star Taylor Swift for her recent stone-faced reaction to a joke about her at the Golden Globes.

A big difference between the Golden Globes and the NFL

During the January 7 awards show, host Jo Koy discussed the seemingly constant cutaway shots of Swift that are now a major part of NFL broadcasts of Kansas City Chiefs games.

The shots of Swift are due to her romantic relationship with Chief’s tight end, Travis Kelce.

Koy then compared those continual NFL shots of Swift to the celebrity close-ups of her during the Golden Globes.

“As you know, we came on after a football doubleheader. The big difference between the Golden Globes and the NFL? On the Golden Globes, we have fewer camera shots of Taylor Swift, I swear,” Koy said.

It was a good-natured joke that received quite a bit of laughter.

But one person in the audience wasn’t laughing – Taylor Swift.

In fact, right after the joke, the camera panned to a shot of a clearly stone-faced Swift, who slowly raised her glass of champagne and took a quick sip.

Social media lit up with people blasting Swift for her lack of humor.

And during her show the Monday after Swift’s stony sip, Megyn Kelly said the look on the pop star’s face made it seem like Swift was pouting about the joke at her expense.

Did Megyn Kelly go too far?

“One of the jokes that is getting a lot of attention is he made a joke about Taylor Swift, which was fine. I actually thought he was spot on with the commentary,” Kelly said.

“She did not appreciate it,” Kelly said.

After playing the clip of Koy’s Taylor Swift joke, Kelly offered up her opinion, saying Swift “looked angry.”

But Kelly ended up getting attacked for her comments about Swift.

.@megynkelly needs to keep her mouth shut. He obviously has never paid attention to Taylor Swift because if she had, then she would know Taylor Swift has a sense of humor, especially about herself because she loves to make fun of herself.

Taylor is tired of the misogynistic jokes

” Come on,” Daily Mail columnist Maureen Callahan, who appeared on Kelly’s show, said.

But Kelly stuck to her guns.

Kelly said the joke was merely “a gentle swipe.”

“And by the way, she’s not in charge of the number of times the NFL chooses to put her on cam. That’s not her fault. It is annoying,” Kelly said.

“And If she were smart, she would laugh like she was in on the joke.”

Kelly also later said the look on Swift’s face “looked like, ‘How dare you question me and my popularity?”

This is not Kelly’s first swipe at Swift.

Last month, Kelly called for a boycott of Swift after the pop star attended a fundraiser supported by a group that strongly supports the terrorist group Hamas.

“That is the group Taylor Swift thought it might be fun to help raise money for,” Kelly said.

“She owes Israelis and Jewish Americans an apology, and I hope they boycott her events until she issues it,” Kelly continued.

“Because attending this thing was wrong. It was wrong.”
