While watching Taylor Swift’s new documentary Miss Americana has sent Swifties into a spiral over whether or not Taylor is engaged to Joe Alwyn (see: her wearing a giant diamond ring during one of the scenes), comedian Nikki Glaser had a totally different reaction to the film. Nikki says that she was “horrified” after watching the doc and realizing that it including a clip of her being critical about Taylor’s weight and friend group.
But instead of simply waiting out the drama, Nikki decided to publicly apologize to Taylor with a very lengthy Instagram post, writing:

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. 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. 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 motherfucking 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 #missamericana ❤️🆖
And this story has a happy ending, cause Taylor saw Nikki’s post and responded, writing:
Wow, this has to be one of the best celebrity Instagram interactions of all time, right? Love seeing women build each other up!
