Selena has had enough of this feud between Kanye West and her fellow squad member, Taylor Swift, and she’s speaking out.

The world was introduced to the latest chapter of the ongoing celebrity feud which began after West interrupted Swift’s VMA speech in 2009 on Sunday night after Kim Kardashian shared footage on her Snapchat of a phone conversation between her husband Kanye and Swift.

Like many others who immediately rushed to social media, Selena Gomez felt compelled to make a passionate statement about the issue on Twitter, and is receiving her fair share of backlash for not using her platform to support social causes.

The videos Kardashian shared capture a phone call which appears to show West openly sharing ideas and intentions about his Swift-centered “Famous” song lyric, though Swift originally denied that Kanye requested her approval.

After Taylor reacted to the situation with an Instagram post, her gal pal Selena voiced her own thoughts on Twitter.

Gomez expressed her belief that after all of the tragedies that recently occurred in the world, the issue of Kanye and Swift is not something that should be in the forefront of our minds.

After Gomez shared her disappointment in the amount of attention the latest chapter in Swift’s dramatic narrative was receiving, she herself became a target for criticism and Twitter users began calling her out for hypocritical behavior.

After one Twitter user questioned Gomez on her #BlackLivesMatter stance, she replied, “oh lol so that means if I hashtag something I save lives? No – I could give two fucks about ‘sides’. You don’t know what I do.”

Gomez has since deleted the tweet.
