Orange Is the New Black actress Ruby Rose shared some commentary about Katy Perry after she released “Swish Swish,” her new single with Nicki Minaj, on Friday (May 19, 2017).

Rose, who is also a friend of Perry’s ex-friend, Taylor Swift, openly criticized Perry’s new music on Twitter.

“’Purposeful poop’ to ‘bomb a petit’ to a sloppy mess of writing over the top of Funkagenda..stop trying to make ‘Wit..I mean ‘fetch’ happen,” Rose wrote in a tweet.

This opened up a heated dialogue between Rose and fans of both Perry and Minaj. Rose noted that Nicki is “great” on the track and is “basically the only part that doesn’t sound a mess,” later adding that she previously went on tour with her.

“She was very nice,” she said of Minaj. “Very funny and very talented.”

Rose went on to criticize Perry for “rebranding as a political activist” only to remove the title and produce a song with lyrics such as, “Funny my name keeps comin’ outcho mouth/ ‘Cause I stay winning.”

When a Twitter user asked Rose if she was against Swift’s song “Bad Blood” based on her previous tweets, Rose responded, “Wasn’t around sweetheart but my bully experiences came from one of the people involved in that song and it’s obviously not T.”
