Kristen Stewart “Mocked” Taylor Swift And Tom Hiddleston Claim NOT True
Kristen Stewart did NOT “mock” Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston, despite a sensational new report. Gossip Cop can easily debunk the story, which comes from an outlet that routinely chooses clickbait over truth-telling.
Of course, we’re talking about HollywoodLife, which announced in a headline on Monday, “Nicholas Hoult & Kristen Stewart Mock Taylor Swift & Tom Hiddleston Romance.” The accompanying story asserts, “Nicholas Hoult and Kristen Stewart poke fun at Hiddleswift’s whirlwind relationship — just what Taylor needs right now — while promoting their new film, Equals.'” But neither actor actually made fun of the couple.
The twisted piece is all based on an interview Hoult, Stewart and Equals director Drake Doremus did with Made In Hollywood. Towards the end of the five-minute chat, the filmmaker spoke about exploring trust as part of the moviemaking process. Hoult then quipped of their film, “I made it as a tribute to Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift.”
And… that was it. Hoult didn’t say anything more, and Stewart didn’t say anything AT ALL. So, where’s the mocking? There isn’t any. No one in the trio even “giggled” at the remark, as the blog claimed, nor was there any kind of “jab.” The story is an outright lie and the video of the interview proves it (see below).
As if that wasn’t bad enough, HollywoodLies also attempted to connect Hoult’s seconds-long comment to Swift’s current drama with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, which, as the site says, exploded “in the last 24 hours.” But this interview was uploaded to YouTube on July 8. That means the outlet not only misrepresented the content to make it seem like Swift was being “mocked,” but also mislead readers about when it came out to make it seem like she was being kicked while already down.
To recap: Hoult and Stewart did NOT mock Swift and Hiddleston, and the interview in question took place more than a week before the songstress’ latest dustup with Kardashian and West. But as Gossip Cop has repeatedly pointed out, HollywoodLife would rather manipulate readers to score traffic than report the facts. And this is especially true of the webloid’s “reporting” on Swift and Stewart.
