Taylor acknowledged the call in a couple of Instagram Stories while asking people to donate to the World Health Organization and Feeding America to support their coronavirus relief efforts. “Instead of answering those who are asking how I feel about the video footage that leaked, proving that I was telling the truth the whole time, [...] please join me in donating during this crisis,” she wrote.
Kim then came to the defense of her husband, saying that Taylor's decision to speak on the beef "feels very self-serving" with the coronavirus pandemic and the current state of the world. She admitted she was "really embarrassed and mortified" to be commenting on the video, but felt she had no choice because "[Taylor] is actually lying."
While Kim conceded that the word "bitch" wasn't mentioned, she feels that Taylor painted Kanye in a bad light and "manipulated the truth of their actual conversation." She also denied ever editing any footage of the call between Taylor and Kanye, which she originally leaked in 2016. Kim ended her thread by saying it would be the last time she would speak on the subject.

Perhaps the most interesting part about this entire tweet storm was the revelation that Ye has "documented the making of all his albums for his personal archive." Given Kanye's outspokenness, there are probably plenty of unseen conversations that would shake up the internet if they were released.
Anyway, the feud between Kanye and Taylor was rehashed when several new clips were unearthed of the two discussing Yeezy's infamous mention of Taylor on his 2016 song "Famous," which features Rihanna and Swizz Beatz. Kanye rapped, "For all my Southside n*ggas that know me best / I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous."
We can see below that Kanye is hesitant as he recites an amended version of his lyrics: "For all my Southside n*ggas that know me best / I feel like Taylor Swift might owe me sex." The punchline, "I made that bitch famous," is the biggest omission, but Kim said during her recent Twitter tirade that at the time of the call "the song had not been fully written yet."
When "Famous" was first released, Taylor was unsettled by Kanye's lyrics and her team put out a statement calling the song "misogynistic" and claiming that Taylor was unaware of its content.
