    There's A New Taylor Swift Meme Sweeping Tumblr

    Haters gonna hate.

    Taylor Swift and her legal team have fought many battles to protect her work.

    This past January the pop star legally trademarked the phrase "this sick beat" and other lyrics from her 1989 album.

    But let's be real, if you dropped an album as killer as 1989, you'd be protective too.

    More recently, Taylor Swift's team allegedly issued a cease and desist letter to a podcast that mentioned Swift's "Wildest Dreams" video.

    Yesterday's @CitizenRadio has been deleted. Hey @taylorswift13 are you aware your people are harassing podcasts?

    We're still waiting to hear back but think it may be because @jamiekilstein recited some @taylorswift13 lyrics? #CitizenRadio

    In response, Tumblr users have taken Taylor's copyright requests further than probably any lawyer intended.

    From relatable text posts...

    ...to dating memes.

    Even One Direction fans are paying proper citation.

    Some are criticizing the meme for being in poor taste, as it coincides with a lawsuit from a radio DJ, but others feel it's unrelated.

    Of course it's all in good fun.

    And Taylor is still queen.
