Swift is the latest person to show her support for Kesha. Over the weekend, Demi Lovatocommended Kesha for her bravery. “This is only gonna make you stronger, you brave and beautiful girl. Prayers are with you.”

Shortly after word got out about Swift's donation, Lovato may have thrown some shade at Swift. She made a point in her earlier tweets that she's ready for "self-proclaimed feminists to start speaking out or taking action for women's rights." She backed up her statement with this tweet:

Take something to Capitol Hill or actually speak out about something and then I'll be impressed.
