Taylor Swift‘s PR team best friends are in damage control mode.

Two of Swift’s BFFs from her “Bad Blood” music video, Gigi Hadid and Martha Hunt, are speaking out against accusations that their friend is a “mean girl” with high demands and controls her squad like a dictator so they won’t upstage her.

When Grizzly Bear singer Ed Droste shared a photo of a tabloid article claiming that Swift had sent friends Kendall Jenner, Cara Delevingne, and Karlie Kloss a list of “dos and don’ts” on how to behave around her, Hadid and Hunt, who were also named in the piece, quickly hopped online to refute the rumor.

Aside from the two model, Swift’s legions of fans also stood by their idol as they attempted drag Droste — who, by the way, did not write the article in question but merely agreed with its content — by hijacking his Wikipedia page and verbally attacking him on Twitter.

Along with the picture of the report, Droste tweeted that Swift was “self-serving” and had been “given a free pass for too long.” The indie musician said he’s had “first hand experience” of Swift’s alleged “calculating” ways and “have a whole other story to tell.”

“Still feels unsafe tho,” he wrote. “She frightens me genuinely.”

Droste also retweeted a link to a Billboard article reporting that Swift’s lawyers are threatening to take legal action against a teacher for buying the domain name and claiming he taught her how to play the guitar.

So, is TayTay’s good girl image starting to unravel at the seams? Previously, producer Diplo hinted that Swift is not who she seems (before backtracking and making nice with the singer).

“Her powers — she’s big. She’s strong, bro. 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,” he told GQ. “And she’s definitely, there’s definitely scary stuff going on. And I’m scared. I’m scared for my life.”
