The 'Lover' singer is 'sending a massive hug' to the stand-up comedian, who admits she sounded 's***ty' when she said Taylor's 'too skinny; it bothers me' in an interview featured on the Netflix documentary.

AceShowbiz - There's no bad blood between Taylor Swift and Nikki Glaser despite the latter's body-shaming comments in a documentary about the singer, "Miss Americana". The comedian has extended her apology to the 30-year-old pop superstar, which the latter has accepted with an open heart, after Nikki learned that her old interview, in which she commented on Taylor's skinny figure, is featured in the Netflix movie.

Getting ahead of the backlash, Nikki posted on her Instagram page on Friday, January 31 to apologize to the "Look What You Made Me Do" songstress. "I love @taylorswift. Unfortunately, I am featured in her new documentary as part of a montage of asshats saying mean things about her, which is used to explain why she felt the need to escape from the spotlight for a year," she began her post. Claiming to be a fan of Taylor, she added, "It's insanely ironic because anyone who knows me knows I'm obnoxiously obsessed with her and her music."

The stand-up comic said she first heard herself in the trailer last week and she was "horrified." She continued addressing her old comments about Taylor, "The sound bite was from an interview I did 5 years ago and I say in SUCH a s***ty tone, 'she's too skinny; it bothers me... all of her model friends, and it's just like, cmon!' "

"This quote should be used as an example of 'projection' in PSYCH101 textbooks," she added. "If you're familiar with my 'work' at all, you know I talk openly about battling some kind of eating disorder for the past 17 years. I was probably 'feeling fat' that day and was jealous. Also, I've had people say the same s**t about me being too skinny before and know how terrible it feels to hear that when you're struggling. And I was only bothered by her model friends because I'd like to be her friend and I'm not a model."

Revealing that she "only got a couple death threats from die-hard Swift fans," which she totally understands, she said of her intention with the apology, "I just hope this somehow gets to her so she knows I'm sorry for any pain I caused her and that I'd love to be her friend someday (when I start modeling) and tell her how much her music has influenced my life and comedy." She concluded her lengthy statement, "I love you Tay, and I can't wait to watch 99.97% of your new doc #missamericana."

Taylor later commented on Nikki's post to let her know that all has been forgiven, writing, "Wow. I appreciate this so much and one of the major themes about the doc is that we have the ability to change our opinions over time, to grow, to learn about ourselves." Sharing the same experience with body issues, the "ME!" songstress added, "I'm so sorry to hear that you've struggled with some of the same things I've struggled with. Sending a massive hug."
