Selena Gomez Tries to Defend Taylor Swift, Gets Dragged Under the Bus


Just in case you thought there wasn't already enough drama in the celeb world, Selena Gomez just got herself involved. 

The singer got herself into hot water in the Twitter-verse for venting about celebrities using their influence inappropriately, and we can only assume she's talking about the escalating nastiness between Taylor Swift, Kanye West, and Kim Kardashian. 

There are more important things to talk about... Why can't people use their voice for something that fucking matters?

Truth is last thing we need right now is hate, in any form

This industry is so disappointing yet the most influential smh

The response was quick and forceful. Some Twitter-ites were quick to note that Selena hasn't been too vocal about some important movements, like #Blacklives matter. 

Good question! Why haven't you or Taylor not said a thing about #BlackLivesMatter or police brutality? https://t.co/p5RkwnU0l9

In a since-deleted response tweet Selena asked whether "if I hashtag something I save lives?" and then added a heated-sounding "You don't know what I do."

Selena's heated response, even though it got deleted, pulled a lot of criticism:

you believe supporting the #blacklivesmatter you would be taking a side? @selenagomezpic.twitter.com/XqadwkJsl3

Meanwhile, others defended her by pointing out her charity awareness and philanthropic work:

So y'all just forget about @selenagomez activism and charity work because she has an opinion?!  #GoToSleepSelenapic.twitter.com/1301TbzoT1

That's a lot of drama over a tweet calling on an end to drama.
