Nikki Glaser says she discovered who started the boos for Kim Kardashian at Tom Brady roast

"He’s not affiliated with Swifties or anything," the comic revealed.

The booing of Kim Kardashian at Tom Brady's roast had nothing to do with Taylor Swift, according to comedian Nikki Glaser.

Glaser, whose set was a highlight of the Netflix special, explained the situation on Amanda Hirsch's Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast, saying the boos made her "really upset" because she "thought it was Swiftie-meditated." However, Glaser "ran into someone" the night after the special, who was with a "wild guy who's a comedian" and has a "reputation for just, like, starting s---."

"I don't remember who it was," the Lovers and Liars host continued. "Apparently, he started the boo as just, like, a joke. He just probably had too many drinks or something, and he's not affiliated with Swifties... [He] just felt like saying a boo into the air."

"It wasn't Swiftie-meditated. I do have that on good information," she said. "It just kinda caught on too much."

Some viewers had theorized it was related to the feud between Kardashian and Swift, which was given new life recently on Swift's not-subtle song, "thanK you aIMee."

Nonetheless, the boos caught on, and Kardashian endured them until she said, "All right, all right, all right," calming the crowd. The boos, heard during the live broadcast of The Roast of Tom Brady, were edited out for the version that is currently available on Netflix.

Glaser also defended a misinterpretation of a DM she got from Kardashian that read, "YOU killed it. I don’t know how you do this. It’s abuse LOL.” Many interpreted the message to be a complaint about the roast and being booed, but that isn't what was intended, according to Glaser.

"It sounds like she's talking about what they may have done when she got booed or something," Glaser explained. "She wasn't talking about that. She was just talking about showing respect to people up on the stage who were much more inclined to get jokes said about them."

Glaser continued, "My response is, it is abuse. She's not wrong. Yes, obviously, we're asking for it. She didn't say that we didn't deserve it. She was just saying it's abuse. It literally is someone is saying the worst things about you to your face. It's not nice. It doesn't make you feel good."

The comedian not only defended Kardashian but also offered praise to the billionaire celebrity for getting on stage during the roast. "I give her so many props. People were just being mean to her because they don't like her, because they're jealous, or because they have some other kind of beef that has nothing to do with them, that they're sticking up for someone else," she said.

"To me, she was really cool to be there. She sat there the whole f---ing show when other people made their little appearance and then got the hell out of there. She sat the whole show and watched everyone for three hours, and was such a good sport, laughing the whole the time," Glaser said. "Then she gets up there and gets booed, doesn't let it rattle her at all, doesn't even give it credence, nails her lines that I knew she would because she was great on SNL."
