The performance was part of Youssef’s “More Feelings” tour. The comedian is reportedly donating all proceeds from Friday’s engagement in Brooklyn to the organization American Near East Refugee Aid (ANERA), which is providing humanitarian aid to Gaza in the wake of Hamas’ October 7 terrorist attacks in Israel.
ANERA states on its official site that it also provides aid to areas in the West Bank, Jordan, and Syria.
Taylor Swift hasn’t publicly commented on the unfolding war between Israel and Hamas, though she has found time to promote a left-wing voter registration initiative.
The pop star was recently named Time magazine’s Person of the Year for 2023.
In her Time interview last week, Taylor Swift complained how a “patriarchal society” and capitalism are still keeping women down.
