Megyn Kelly Calls for Boycott of Taylor Swift After Singer’s Attendance at Gaza Charity Event

Megyn Kelly wants fans to “boycott” Taylor Swift after the singer attended a Gaza fundraising event with her close pal Selena Gomez amid the Israel–Hamas war.

The political commentator bashed Swift for going to comedian Ramy Youssef’s show in Brooklyn on Dec. 8 — which donated all proceeds to American Near East Refugee Aid (Anera) — on her eponymous SiriusXM show Tuesday.

Kelly, 53, noted that Jerusalem-based organization NGO Monitor describes Anera as “‘highly political,’ presenting a ‘highly biased view’ of the Israel–Palestine war, ‘ignoring any Palestinian responsibility for hardship and contributing to the demonization of Israel.’

“That is the group Taylor Swift thought it might be fun to help raise money for, attend the fundraiser for,” the journalist continued, “and she owes Israelis and Jewish Americans an apology.”

Kelly even went so far as to share her hope that Swifties will “boycott” the “Cruel Summer” singer’s events “until she issues” a mea culpa.

“Attending this thing was wrong. It was wrong. Do some Googling. See what they do in Gaza to gays. See about women’s rights in Gaza, Taylor,” she said.

“Otherwise, do this when it comes to talking about those issues again,” the former Fox News host concluded while motioning her hand to tell Swift to keep her mouth shut. “You clearly know nothing.”

Page Six has reached out to Swift’s rep for comment.

Anera’s website insists the nonprofit “does not work or even coordinate with” Hamas, which the US Department of State designates as a “terrorist group.”

Other celebrities seen at the event included Cara Delevingne, Anya Taylor-Joy and Zoë Kravitz.

Swift — who has 278 million Instagram followers and was just named Time’s Person of the Year — has been criticized for staying silent after Hamas’ Oct. 7 terrorist attack on Israeli citizens that left more than 1,200 dead, 240 kidnapped and many 𝑠e𝑥ually brutalized.

The Grammy winner’s bodyguard even reportedly returned to Israel to serve in the Israeli Defense Forces amid the conflict.

Many fans flocked to social media to react to Swift’s attendance at the charity event.

“Since October 7th, Taylor Swift has made ZERO mentions of the massacre that occurred in Israel at the hands of Hamas terrorists,” the StopAntisemitism organization tweeted Monday. “Her own bodyguard, who is charged with protecting her life, went to Israel to serve in the IDF. Swift did, however, make the time to attend a Gaza fundraiser Friday evening with Selena Gomez. When will you attend a fundraiser for Israel @taylorswift13?”
