“Someone should make a kickstarter to get taylor swift a booty,” he Tweeted on Wednesday, instantly incurring the wrath of a million Swifties. (As Swift sings, “Why you gotta be so mean?”)
Sure, butts are a hot topic because of Kim Kardashian‘s nude Paper shoot, but Diplo’s body-shaming comments smack of more than just bizarre masochism: In a September
article, Swift said she wrote “Bad Blood” about a fellow pop princess who tried to sabotage her tour — and the “Roar” singer seemingly responded by Tweeting, “Watch out for the Regina George in sheep’s clothing … ”
No word from Swift (or Perry) yet, but she’ll probably just “Shake it Off.” After all, haters gonna hate hate hate hate hate.
Tell us: Is Diplo being sassy or just plain cruel?
