The digital claws are out.
After Kim Kardashian revealed clips of Kanye West and Taylor Swift discussing lyrics for his track "Famous" on Snapchat, several stars took to social media to respond to the pop culture frenzy that had ignited. Among those celebrity names was 19-year-old Neighbors 2 star Chloe Grace Moretz, who expressed a few of her overall thoughts on Twitter.
"Everyone in this industry needs to get their heads out of a hole and look around to realize what's ACTUALLY happening in the REAL world," she wrote late Sunday. "Stop wasting your voice on something so petulant and unimportant."
Kim's younger sister Khloe Kardashian did not take too kindly to Moretz's remarks, begging the question, "Is this the a hole you're referring to @ChloeGMoretz ???" The reality star embedded two photos, one of the actress looking off into the distance clad in a red bikini top and the other, of a blond woman with her back turned to the camera being carried in the ocean on a mystery man's back. In the latter shot, the woman's behind is exposed while the man carrying her accidentally pulls at her red bikini bottom.
While it appeared like both photos were of Moretz, the star clarified for fans. "Fact check: first photo is me filming my movie Neighbors 2, the second photo is some girl who was wrongfully photographed," Moretz explained. She also included a photo of herself from the film shoot, which revealed she was wearing a pair of blue bikini bottoms unlike the second photo depicted.
This is not the first time Moretz has gotten into an online spat with a member of the Kardashian clan. When Kim shared a nude mirror selfie in early March, the actress expressed concern on her Twitter account. "I truly hope you realize how important setting goals are for young women, teaching them we have so much more to offer than just our bodies," she wrote. Kim responded, "Let's all welcome @ChloeGMoretz to twitter, since no one knows who she is...your nylon cover is cute boo." Moretz appeared on the December/January issue of the magazine, seemingly without clothing except for a jacket draped over her shoulder though she was credited with wearing a bodysuit underneath.
The actress later clarified her stance, writing, "There's a huge difference in respecting the platform that you're given as a celebrity and 'slut shaming' something I never have done and would never do."
Social media experienced quite the overall uproar late Sunday and early Monday after the videos of Kanye speaking to Taylor about his "Famous" lyrics surfaced on Snapchat. In the clips, the rapper is shown reviewing the line, "For all my Southside n-----s that know me best / I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex," with Swift on the phone.
"Umm, yeah go with whatever line you think is better," Taylor is heard saying. "It's obviously very tongue in cheek either way. And I really appreciate you telling me about it, that's really nice."
Swift later continued, "If people ask me about it, I think it would be great for me to be like, ‘Look, he called me and told me the line before it came out. Jokes on you guys, We're fine.' You guys want to call this a feud; you want to call this throwing shade but right after the song comes out I'm going to be on a Grammys red carpet and they're going to ask me about it and I'll be like, ‘He called me.' It's awesome that you're so outspoken about this and be like, ‘Yeah, she does. It made her famous.' Its more provocative to say ‘might still have sex…' It's doesn't matter to me. There's not like one [line] that hurts my feelings and one that doesn't."
However, while accepting the 2016 Grammy Award for Album of the Year, she said, "There are going to be people along the way who try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame."
The Grammy winner also took to Instagram following the Snapchat uploads to share her side of the story. "Where in the video of Kanye telling me he was going to call me 'that bitch' in his song? It doesn't exist because it never happened. You don't get to control someone's emotional response to being called ‘that bitch' in front of the entire world," the post began. "Of course I wanted to like the song. I wanted to believe Kanye when he told me that I would love the song."
Thus far, there has been no public video or audio of Taylor approving the lyric "I made that bitch famous."
