In the clip, which TMZ said was recorded a few months ago in Los Angeles, Leto and his Thirty Seconds to Mars bandmates listened to tracks from the pop star’s album 1989.
After playing songs like “Welcome to New York” and “Blank Space” (Leto is a fan of the latter), the actor became quickly disenchanted with the chart-topping singer.
“F— her. I don’t give a f— about her,” Leto exclaimed.
Jared Leto: My Arrests Led Me to Acting
Leto was immediately pummeled with harsh feedback from Swift fans on Monday and Tuesday.
“@JaredLeto @taylorswift13 You HURT not her BUT YOUR FANS!. Think before speak, arrogant boy @JaredLeto,” wrote one Twitter user.
The actor then took to the social media website, himself, to issue an apology.
“The truth is I think @taylorswift13 is amazing + an incredible example of what’s possible,” Leto wrote on Monday.
“If I hurt her or her fans my sincerest apologies,” Leto added.
Swift has yet to weigh in on Leto’s comments.
