Just three months after Taylor Swift called Justin Bieber out for bullying, he decided it would be a good idea to mock her in an Instagram Live. Yikes.
Hey Clevver Fam! It’s Emile Ennis Jr. here with Clevver News and in case you missed it, Taylor Swift literally won last week with the funniest clip ever.
So Taylor was on The Tonight Show and Jimmy Fallon revealed that her mom had sent him a video of her post lasik eye surgery meltdown. Taylor had no idea Jimmy had this video so she was just as surprised by it as we were. She said quote, “I can’t even be mad. I’m just impressed that you infiltrated my family. I don’t even know how you did that! Nobody has my mom’s number.”
Very impressive. And keep in mind, Taylor was under anesthesia so she’s pretty hilarious.
I could watch this over and over. She went on to lay in bed and cuddle with slash eat the banana, while continuing to babble nonsense. You know just your typical post-op anesthesia talk.
Fans thought it was so funny and actually loved seeing this super real side of Taylor.
One person wrote quote, “I actually loved seeing her like this, not in pain, just seeing her dressed like any of us would at home, kinda messy hair chilling with her mum. Used to seeing her glammed up all the time hehe glad she feels better”
And another said quote, “I have never seen this Taylor's side. She looks so surprised and innocent cuz she didn't know what was going on. Btw, I am never disappointed with her style. Love that dress.”
And I couldn’t agree more. I loved this clip and have been watching it on repeat basically all weekend.
And though most people were enjoying the clip and having a good laugh, Justin Bieber decided to get involved and stirred up some bad blood.
Sunday, Justin and his wife Hailey Bieber went live on Instagram in their kitchen.
It was harmless until at one point when Justin decided to reenact Taylor Swift's epic post-lasik surgery meltdown.
He literally quoted her exactly from the clip we just showed you and said quote, “It’s not the banana I wanted! It’s not the right banana. It has no head.”
We also heard Hailey in the background saying quote, “that was so funny” with absolutely no expression or hint of belly laughter…
And while Hailey might have thought it was funny, the Swifities thought it was full of shade.
I mean after all, we know that these two don’t have the best history.
Fans took to twitter to call Justin out.
One person tweeted saying quote, “get a job, stay away from her @justinbieber”
Another said quote, “what an ass I can’t- I mean I’m not surprised at this point but fr she just had surgery??? Doing this is so uncalled for he’s literally just bullying her”
And finally another fan went off and wrote quote, “@justinbieber is one of the biggest hypocrites of all time. He always says things like "Just love" and then he mocks Taylor out of nowhere. So annoying. He's really obsessed with Taylor. @scooterbraun talk to your client pls. Tell him to stop mocking people.”
But not everyone thought Justin and Hailey were making fun of Taylor.
One person said quote, “I legit don’t think they’re trying to make this a big deal, they just saw it and were laughing about it :/ but everyones freaking out. Like what are they supposed to do not make fun of it ? When everyone else is. It was meant to b a funny video, at least they thought it was funny”
But I think it’s fair to wonder what Justin’s intention was with this reenactment. If you’re new to Clevver, allow me to back track for a sec and explain why this could be controversial.
Over the summer, Justin's manager Scooter Braun acquired Taylor's entire music catalogue for $300 million and she said it made her feel quote "sad and grossed out."
Like even if you did just think the video was funny like the rest of us, it’s probably best to air on the side of caution after someone calls you out for being involved with bullying them.
So now it’s time I turn it over to you. What do you think of Justin and Hailey’s Instagram Live? Do you think they were maliciously making fun of Taylor? Or do you think it was harmless?
