After a judge declared on Friday that Kesha was stuck in her recording contract with her longtime producer and alleged abuser, Dr. Luke, many artists took to social media to show the pop star their support. But one person was noticeably absent — and Demi Lovato, one of Kesha’s vocal supporters, not-so-subtly called out Taylor Swift on Saturday.

Later that day, Swift’s rep told various media outlets, “In a show of support, Taylor Swift has donated $250,000 to Kesha to help with any of her financial needs during this trying time,” and Kesha’s mom, Pebe Sebert, confirmed it on Twitter.

That still wasn’t enough for Lovato.

And while Demi has a point, enough about the bad blood between Taylor and Demi (though, bravo, Miss Lovato, whose Twitter timeline was all about women empowerment and equal rights for all). This is about Kesha and the turmoil she’s been going through since 2014, when she filed a lawsuit against Dr. Luke claiming he physically, sexually, verbally and emotionally assaulted her for a decade. He counter-sued, claiming Kesha and her manager were planning to extort him, but that suit was dismissed earlier this month. But what the judge’s ruling on Friday means for Kesha is that, if she wants to record more albums and release new music, she has to work with Dr. Luke. Why the judge didn’t take her off his label and move her to another one of Sony’s sub-labels is beyond us but that’s a whole other rant.

In response to the events, the hashtag #FreeKesha trended on Twitter, with some fans calling for a boycott of Sony Music, which distributes Kesha’s music, and many stars standing by the singer.

Kesha’s mom wrapped it all up best.

Stay strong, Kesha, and keep on fighting to be heard.
