Selena Gomez has stepped into the fray of Taylor Swift versus Kanye West and wife Kim Kardashian, defending her “squad” friend after many have accused the country-pop star of lying. Swift has continually denied knowing about West’s “Famous” lyric in which he states, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Why? I made that b—- famous.”

The “Revival” record maker demanded the public should focus on the important things.

The star wrote hate is “the last thing we need.”

Later, she added the entertainment industry can be harmful and helpful.

But when a Twitter user asked why Gomez or Swift had not mentioned #BlackLivesMatter or commented on police brutality, the 23-year-old singer dismissed the movement.

“I could give two f—- about ‘sides’ ” Gomez wrote, meaning she could not care less. “You don’t know what I do.”

The tweet was deleted, but not before Jon screenshot the image and mentioned Gomez in his response.

After a lengthy back and forth between Swift, West and Kardashian regarding the “Famous” lyric, Swift has once again insisted she had no knowledge of the infamous line. Kardashian posted a series of videos on her Snapchat account last night of a phone call between her husband and Swift confirming she approved the line.

Since Gomez stepped up to defend her pal, her mentions have been in shambles.

Like Jon, Zoe pointed out the star’s hypocrisy.

Melissa made sure others won’t forget Gomez’s stance.

@TheBlingMonster backed Kardashian and pointed out Gomez has yet to speak out about the brutal killings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile by police this month.

Katie asked why the singer wouldn’t tweet to spread awareness of Black Lives Matter.

Another user dissed Gomez for not using her voice for her profession.

Swift and Gomez are not the only non-Black celebrities who have remained silent on BLM. Jennifer Lopez faced massive criticism last week when she tweeted #AllLivesMatter. The hashtag ignored the innocent loss of life the week before. Rapper Iggy Azalea, known for appropriating Black culture, was also slammed on Twitter for not speaking on police violence against Blacks. Justin Timberlake faced similar judgement for dismissing Black contributions to his music. He later showed support for BLM.
