Yesterday Diplo, a DJ and Katy Perry's rumored boyfriend, decided to wage war on the most powerful group of people online: Taylor Swift and her Swifties.

Then, someone decided to actually start a petition, and the DJ tweeted out a link to the crowdfunding site Fundly. The page had a total of 25 supporters and raised $45.

The DJ, who has allegedly been in a relationship with Perry since April, also retweeted a link to a petition someone had made on the Whitehouse website.

Side note: Let's not forget the ongoing "feud" between Swift and Perry.

The plot thickens.

Diplo then decided to insult Taylor Swift fans...

...and mock people who called him out for body-shaming Swift.

That was when Lorde, who was tired of the DJ laying into Swift, decided to craft the most perfect reply to one of his tweets.
