A comedian who once criticized Taylor Swift’s body is now apologizing after it came up in Taylor’s new Netflix documentary. Nicky Glasser can be seen talking about how Taylor and her friends are “too skinny” in “Miss Americana.” Glasser says she is a huge Taylor Swift fan and says she was “horrified” by her now 5-year-old comments. Nicky says it was a case of projection, that she herself suffered from an eating disorder and body dysmorphia. Taylor then responded in the comments, "Wow. I appreciate this so much and one of the major themes of the doc is that we have the ability to change our opinions over time, to grow, to learn about ourselves. I'm so sorry to hear that you've struggled with some of the same things I've struggled with. Sending a massive hug."
