This is Diplo. He's known for being a DJ, producer, songwriter...
...and chronic Taylor Swift hater. In 2014, he tweeted this:
Now he's under fire again after his upcoming interview with Rolling Stone leaked to several gossip sites. In the Q&A, Diplo allegedly said this about Taylor Swift:
“Music is in the hands of the kids. 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 said when asked about the effects of music streaming. “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.”
Just a reminder: "Look What You Made Me Do" broke Adele's record for most-streamed debut week by a female artist.
Anyway, Swifties definitely did not appreciate Diplo's alleged comment and took to Twitter to express that:
They also went in on his Insta, commenting with a shitload of snakes — a symbol Taylor has reclaimed in her Reputation era.
Ugh, another day, another drama.
