Diplo: Taylor Swift’s Fans Are ‘Worse Than North Korea’
The producer, who became public enemy No. 1 when he joked that Taylor Swift needed to get herself “a booty,” is taking aim at the singer’s followers once again. Speaking to GQ Style, Diplo says the fandom “like an army that’s worse than North Korea.” Oof.
“All I know is don’t ever get into a feud with Taylor Swift. She has like 50 million people that will die for her,” he cautions. “You can’t step into that arena. That was something I was never prepared for.”
He adds, “One of the biggest mistakes of my career was definitely fucking with her.”
Previously, Diplo faced the wrath of the Swifties — and the songstress’ BFF, Lorde — when he made a joke about Swift’s supposed flat ass. The 36-year-old then told GQ in a separate interview that there was definitely more to Swift than meets the eyes, claiming:
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.
“I’m a fan though,” he also insisted.
Hmm. Just maybe not a fan of her fans then.
