The cold war between pop stars Katy Perry and Taylor Swift is no secret, but it seems that Perry's boyfriend DJ Diplo has jumped in on the "hate Taylor Swift' bandwagon.
The 36-year-old music producer initially began insulting Swift by calling out on Twitter that someone should start a fundraiser to get her a bigger posterior. "Someone should make a kickstarter to get taylor swift a booty," Diiplo posted on 13 November.
In response, Twitter user Armonyo informed Dj Diplo, whose real name is Thomas Pentz, that he has "started a petition on http://whitehouse.gov to include it on the federal budget", which was retweeted by Perry's rumoured boyfriend.
While many were on board with him body shaming the 24-year-old "Shake it Off" hit-maker, many fans also retaliated vehemently, like Kristin who tweeted, "@diplo someone should make you a kickstarter bc no one knows who the f**k you are" and Kendra W who points out, "Okay but Diplo making comments about Taylor Swift's body when on a good day he looks like the oatmeal you forgot in the microwave".
Following criticism on body shaming a young woman, Diplo took his attacks to the next level, by going after Taylor Swift fans. He first satirically tweeted, "body shaming myself right now", before asking, "are taylor swift fans called the swift boat veterans?"
He further promoted a campaign called "Get Taylor Swift A Booty" started by one Eric Spivak. "Taylor Swift Still Needs Your Help! Any true supporter of TSWIFT would definitely not pass up this opportunity to improve her posterior! THIS IS A JOKE. kinda.," reads the campaign page. Unfortunately, the fundraiser page already has 45 supporters who have collectively donated $85 for "the cause".
It is in response to one of Diplo's tweets, in which he again asked his followers to help Swift get a booty, along with a link to the fundraiser page, that Swift's friend and "Royal" singer Lorde burned him.
"@diplo should we do something about your tiny penis while we're at it hm," asks Lorde as she classily and elegantly destroys the music producer with whom she worked on the sound track for the upcoming film "The Hunger Games Mockingjay - Part 1".
Interestingly, Swift has remained mum throughout the twitter spat against her, only tweeting and retweeting about the success of her album "1989" and her cover photo for "TIME".
