Megyn Kelly slams Taylor Swift for attending Ramy Youssef comedy night where proceeds were donated to Gaza charity described as ‘highly political’: ‘She owes Israelis and Jewish Americans an apology – and I hope they boycott her events’

Megyn Kelly on Tuesday condemned Taylor Swift for attending a comedy night in Brooklyn, whose proceeds were sent to a charity working in Gaza.

And she mocked the singer for supporting the LGBTQ community and women’s rights, and also backing the Gaza charity.

‘You know what they do to that community in Gaza, Taylor, that you now want to support?’ asked Kelly.

‘You know what Hamas likes to do to women? You think we have equal rights over there, Taylor?’

Swift on Friday attended a Ramy Youssef show at the Brooklyn Academy of Music with friends including Selena Gomez, Cara Delevingne and Zoe Kravitz.

Youssef, born in New York City to Egyptian parents, announced that the proceeds from the last 12 nights of his More Feelings tour would go to the American Near East Refugee Aid (ANERA).

The comedian – who has been vocal about calling for a ceasefire in the Middle East – said the charity works to ‘provide humanitarian relief to the people of Gaza.’

But Kelly ridiculed the charity.

Citing NGO Monitor – a group founded by an Israeli professor to counter anti-Israel narratives – Kelly said that ANERA was ‘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.’

Kelly continued: ‘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.

‘And I hope they boycott her events until she issues it because attending this thing was wrong. It was wrong.’

Swift and her team are yet to address the controversy.

But Gigi Hadid, a friend of Swift’s whose father is Palestinian, commented on Youssef’s post: ‘Legend.’
