It’s 2020 and the world is currently in the midst of a pandemic, courtesy of Coronavirus (COVID-19). But, somehow, the world is also still talking about Kris Jenner and her kids. This past weekend, the phone call between Jenner’s son-in-law, Kanye West, and Taylor Swift leaked to the public. This was the unedited version of the clip that Kim Kardashian West posted back in 2016.

Of course, we’re all familiar with the fallout that the video caused for Swift four years ago. For months, Swift was slammed with snake emojis and called a liar. Fans of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and even other celebrities, jumped on the bandwagon to declare that “Taylor Swift was over.” This display of cancel culture caused Swift to isolate from the public for an entire year’s time.

But, the tides seem to have turned in the past few days. The unedited phone call between Swift and West shows that Swift was, in fact, telling the truth. Plenty of people are outraged on Swift’s behalf and they are declaring that she is owed an apology by the KarJenners and the rest of the world. Kardashian West doesn’t seem to hold that same opinion. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has been deleting negative comments on Instagram and even liked a Twitter post that said that the unedited phone call doesn’t change anything.

But while some fans are still marveling over the fact that Swift was telling the truth the whole time, others are asking the more important questions. Namely, why did the phone call leak now, four years after the feud began, and who could have leaked it? Some fans of Keeping Up with the Kardashians argue that it had to be someone close to West, as he is the one who recorded it. Others speculate that that person could possibly be Kris Jenner.

But just what cause would Jenner have to leak the phone call between Swift and West? And why would she release something that would make her own family look bad? Longtime fans of the show know that Jenner has a reputation of exploiting her kids’ embarrassing moments for money and fame. In fact, there’s a popular quote about the momager that speaks to that. “The devil works hard, but Kris Jenner works harder,” is something that is constantly said about the eldest star of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

Furthermore, fans of the KarJenners note that the timing of this leaked phone call between Swift and West is suspicious. The new season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians premieres this week on March 26, 2020. Some fans had already speculated that the KarJenners moved their show from Sundays to Thursdays to help combat decreasing ratings. Furthermore, with the Coronavirus dominating the media circuit, rather than the KarJenners, Jenner may have leaked the phone call in order to get people talking about her family once more.

The KarJenners are getting less attention amidst the Coronavirus pandemic

“Korona [sic] works hard but Kris works harder,” one fan of Keeping Up with the Kardashians wrote about the situation, mimicking Jenner’s love of the letter K. “Kris is currently working on a Kure as we speak because she doesn’t appreciate Miss Corona getting more media coverage than the Kardashian Klan!” another person added, following suit. “California is under lockdown, so Kris was like leak everything!” yet another fan declared. “Ratings must be bad if you had to leak the original video. #washedup,” a critic penned. Who knows if Jenner really did leak the call between West and Swift. But, if she did, her mission was, once more, accomplished.
