Olivia is feeling the burning heat from Swifties after she was given a shoutout by Kim Kardashian on Instagram.
As many fans know, Kim & Taylor have a less than stellar rapport with one another, and any friend of Taylor’s knows that confiding with the enemy is absolutely forbidden.
Also, it’s pretty obvious Olivia is one of Taylor’s biggest fans, if not the biggest fan!
She’s boasted about her musical genius in interviews, helped promote “Taylor’s Version” music, they’ve exchanged handwritten notes, and more recently Olivia gave Taylor writing credit on her debut album “Sour.”
During an interview with SiriusXM in March, Olivia said of Taylor, “She is absolutely the kindest individual in the whole world.”
It’s obvious the loyalty between the two hitmakers runs deep, or at least it DID run deep.
Swifites are now up in arms after Kim sang Olivia’s praises and posted about receiving a “Sour” PR package on her Instagram story Tuesday.
In the story she said, “How cute is Olivia Rodrigo? I can’t wait for her album; you guys know I love ‘Driver’s License.’”
In the background you can hear Kim’s oldest daughter, North, call her out saying, “You never listen to it.”
To which Kim quickly chimed back and even called in her son, Saint, for backup.
You hear Kim say in the video, “I listen to it all the time. Stop North. Saint, don’t we listen to it in the car all the time? Yes.”
Kim reiterated the question to Saint, “Don’t I listen to it all the time?” to which he chimed in, “Yeah!”
Check out the incriminating evidence.
Here’s an industry insider tip for you, if you want to sell ANYTHING, you get the Kardashian-Jenner family to post about it on their socials. End of story!
So, Olivia was basically doing her due diligence in getting the word out about her new album, and rubbing elbows with Hollywood’s “Royal family.”
However, she did handwrite Kim a personal note, which could be the SOURed icing on top of this cake.
See what we did there?
In the note Olivia wrote, “Kim, thank you so much for supporting my music! It means the absolute world. I just adore you and I wanted to give you a few goodies to celebrate the release of my 1st album SOUR. Sending you your fam so much love.”
See the note for yourself!
According to Instagram account PopFactionMedia, Olivia’s Instagram comments were inundated with snake emojis ? & harsh comments from Swift’s fans.
Some of the comments were, “Fake Swiftie,” “Why would you give kim pr,” and “Hey cheater ?? does it even feel like success when it’s all fake?”
Someone even tried to get #oliviarodrigoisoverparty trending.
It’s unclear what picture the Swifites unloaded on or how many photos they commented on.
But in a happier turn of events, Olivia’s fans came to her rescue and defended her sending Kim a PR package.
Olivia’s fanbase better known as ‘LIVIES’ took to Twitter and got “We Love You Olivia” trending.
Olivia isn’t the first friend of Taylor’s to feel backlash from her fanbase.
Selena Gomez actually received major pushback from Taylor’s fans after she posted a photo of herself in Kim’s fashion line ‘SKIMS.’
In 2019 Selena posted a mirror selfie wearing an all black SKIMS ensemble. She wrote on the photo “Legit,” “So freakin’ comfortable” and tagged SKIMS in the photo.
After Swifties came for Selena she deleted the photo from her Instagram story and posted a photo of her with Taylor.
