Diplo is in trouble, yet again. After receiving death threats and unpleasant messages after making a Twitter joke about Taylor Swift's lack of a rear end, the artist and producer sat down with GQ and addressed the hostile reaction by calling Swift's fans, "the worst people in the world."
Why he was surprised by the reaction , we're not sure. Taylor Swift is the most popular girl in music with a golden girl image everyone from her millions of fans to famous friends will jump to defend. Now, with this jab at Tay's following he has successfully insulted the fragile egos of many pre-teen girls (many who are probably crying in their bedrooms right now) and basically half of Hollywood. No matter how big or little her butt may be, the singer has a very high-profile friends list including celebrity couple Lena Dunham
and Jack Antanoff,
Emma Stone, Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato
, Ed Sheeran, Sara Hyland
, Jessica Szhor
, Hailee Steinfeld
, Jaime King
, models Karlie Kloss
and Jessica Stam, Cara Delevinge, and of course, Lorde who didn't pause before firing back at Diplo, calling his penis "tiny."
Diplo may face more backlash for bashing Taylor's fan base, but for the rest of us, we've learned a valuable lesson: if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say it on Twitter. As for Taylor Swift, we're sure she'll just shake this whole thing off.
