Taylor Swift Gets an Apology from Nikki Glaser After 'Miss Americana' Debuts

Comedian Nikki Glaser is sending an apology to Taylor Swift after she was featured in a portion of the singer’s documentary that highlighted all of the mean things people say about her in the media.

The moment, which is also part of the trailer, features Nikki saying that Taylor is “too skinny.” The thing is, Nikki is actually a huge fan of Taylor‘s and says she was just projecting her own insecurities onto the superstar.

“I love @taylorswift. Unfortunately, I am featured in her new documentary as part of a montage of asshats saying mean things about her, which is used to explain why she felt the need to escape from the spotlight for a year. It’s insanely ironic because anyone who knows me knows I’m obnoxiously obsessed with her and her music,” Nikki wrote on Instagram. “I first heard myself in the trailer last week as I watched it alone in bed (as soon as it came out bc I was so excited!) and I was horrified to hear my own voice. The sound bite was from an interview I did 5 years ago and I say in SUCH a shitty tone, ‘she’s too skinny; it bothers me… all of her model friends, and it’s just like, cmon!’ 😣.”

“This quote should be used as an example of ‘projection’ in PSYCH101 textbooks. 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 shit about me being too skinny before and know how terrible it feels to hear that when you’re struggling. And I was only bothered by her model friends because I’d like to be her friend and I’m not a model,” Nikki continued. “I really have no need to post this other than to apologize to someone who seriously means SO much to me. I only got a couple death threats from die-hard Swift fans, which as one myself, I totally get.”

“So while I’ll consider going to ‘die in a hole you motherf–king asshole,’ I just hope this somehow gets to her so she knows I’m sorry for any pain I caused her and that I’d love to be her friend someday (when I start modeling) and tell her how much her music has influenced my life and comedy. In fact, her song ‘The Man’ is the inspiration for my new hour of material and I feature the song is multiple iterations during my current tour. I love you Tay, and I can’t wait to watch 99.97% of your new doc,” she concluded.

Taylor took to the comments section of the Instagram post to respond to the apology.

“Wow. I appreciate this so much and one of the major themes about 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. 💗,” Taylor wrote.
