Oh, Diplo, look what you made Swifties do. The Major Lazer producer incurred the wrath of diehard Taylor Swift fans on Twitter when his upcoming Rolling Stone interview leaked online, including his thoughts on one of Swift’s new singles. Needless to say, the popstar's diehard fans reacted negatively.
“Music is in the hands of the kids,” Diplo reportedly told the magazine. “Streaming is literally what kids want to listen to over and over again. They want to listen to ‘Rockstar’ and ‘Bodak Yellow.’ They don’t want to listen to, like, ‘Look What You Made Me Do.’” He continued: “That music doesn’t relate to them at all. I don’t think it ever did. They were only given that by radio and marketing budgets. I’m impressed with Post Malone. I can relate to him more than Taylor Swift.”
Bad move, Diplo. Swifties flooded the DJ and producer’s mentions and reportedly posted countless snake emoji on his Instagram (his account currently does not allow for comments, perhaps an act of self-preservation).
