Justin Bieber Is Getting Slammed For Mocking Taylor Swift's Post-Surgery Meltdown
Baby, now they've got bad blood!
Justin Bieber has once again incurred the wrath of Swifties after he seemingly mocked their Queen, Taylor Swift.
ICYMI; Tay-Tay's mum Andrea managed to sneak Jimmy Fallon a hilarious home video that shows the singer recovering from LASIK eye surgery, which included the star freaking out over a banana thanks to some heavy painkillers.
"Don't fall asleep," her mum can be heard saying as a groggy Taylor tries to eat a banana in bed. "I'm not asleep," Taylor replies, "My mind is alive."
Now, Justin Bieber has been caught on Instagram Live impersonating the star, and fans are not impressed, given Justin and Taylor's less than amicable history.
"It's not the banana that I wanted," Biebs is heard saying in his kitchen as Hailey filmed and laughed, "that was so funny!"
He continued, "It's not the right banana! It has no head!"
Almost immediately, Swifties gathered into formation, attacking the married couple over their apparent shade-throwing, with fans accusing the pair of "being obsessed" and "bullying" Taylor.
Hailey has since posted on Twitter in defence of her husband, replying to one fan saying: "I never knew I could make somebody so upset. Truly I'm so sorry you're THIS upset?! Lord have mercy I hope I'm never this upset about someone I don't know!!"
Another reply from Hailey to a Taylor fan account read: "but being angry at someone you don’t know does nothing for you. I know cause I been there.. all it’s gonna do is make you miserable. Don’t let ME of all people get you feeling that way. Trust me, I’m not worth the energy, nobody should be worth that energy!"
Now, to be fair, if it had been anyone else impersonating Taylor's vid, there likely wouldn't have been any drama over the sitch, however, given JB and Taylor's lengthy past beef in which he defended manager Scooter Braun after he acquired Taylor's entire music catalogue, fans believe the controversial singer was being malicious in his mocking of her.
"I learned about Scooter Braun's purchase of my masters as it was announced to the world," Taylor wrote about Scooter's acquisition of her music in a lengthy Tumblr post. "All I could think about was the incessant, manipulative bullying I've received at his hands for years."
She also attached a screenshot of a 2016 Instagram post by Justin, which showed him FaceTiming with Scooter and Kanye West.
"Taylor Swift what up," Justin wrote as the since-deleted caption.
"This is Scooter Braun, bullying me on social media when I was at my lowest point," Taylor added. "He's about to own all the music I've ever made."
