DJ, producer and rapper, Diplo has got a lot to say about Taylor Swift’s fans – and none of it is flattering.
Not too long ago, Diplo made comments about Taylor’s appearance, namely her bum.
The situation got somewhat out of control when Lorde intervened, defending her BFF with a hilarious comeback on Twitter. However, it looks as if Lorde wasn’t the only one who defended Taylor, and Diplo says he has been a target of online hate for some time now: “Taylor Swift fans are really crazy. They threatened to murder me and stuff. It’s really bizarre, and disgusting. They’re the worst people in the world.”
Shockingly, Diplo also revealed how some of Taylor’s fans had even targeted his children, saying that despite this, he is a fan of the singer: “And I’m a pretty big fan. But they’re like ‘I wish your kids had Down syndrome’. They’re so evil.”
The rapper also made some very cryptic comments about Taylor, that we're not sure she will appreciate, saying: "Taylor Swift is very strategic with her friends and enemies. And I know lots of secrets. I can't divulge, but I know a lot of stuff about her. And I'm scared. I'm scared for my life." Eek – sounds like a serious conspiracy!
Diplo had been linked to Katy Perry for some time but it is believed that she has since reunited with her ex-boyfriend, John Mayer.
Let’s hope the Swifties can forgive Diplo for slating Taylor’s bum – after all, she knows she’s fab!
It isn't known if Taylor is aware of what has been happening and the frankly shocking extent of online abuse suffered by Diplo, but given that she has such a close relationship with so many of her fans it wouldn't be all that surprising if she addressed it.
