Diplo Says Taylor Swift Fans Are the Worst People in the World

Diplo Says Taylor Swift Fans Are the Worst People in the World

Diplo has taken his feud with Taylor Swift to another level in a recent interview with GQ.

Taylor Swift fans are really crazy,” the 36-year-old DJ told the mag. “They threatened to murder me and stuff. It’s really bizarre, and disgusting. They’re the worst people in the world.”

Diplo continued, saying: “They’re like ‘I wish your kids had Down syndrome.’ They’re so evil. I dissed Lady Gaga before, and the gays were never even this mean. They’re funny. These people are like mean-spirited, evil human beings. I’m not a politician. I shouldn’t have to be under the microscope for people like that.”

He also shared that he knows a lot more about Taylor than he could reveal.

“She has like forty million Twitter fans. Forty million! Yeah. It’s crazy. I’m a fan though. 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. And she’s definitely, there’s definitely scary stuff going on. And I’m scared. I’m scared for my life.”

    Yeah she doesn’t seem like the nicest person. You keep hearing it, from her dancers, from workers at events and slyly from her peers.
    Also she can’t seem to do an interview without slyly having a dig at other celebrities, usually Miley. It would be fine if it wasn’t so at odds with the image she projects.


    He is sexist and desperate for attention. The only time this guy gets any publicity is when he talks about Taylor and acts like a 10 year old girl instead of a grown man with a child.. bit pathetic really.


    Not true. People who have been working with her are only saying nice things about her. Why are you imagining things that aren’t there?

  • Jay

    Her dancers and event crew have said, she neither polite or courteous, she doesn’t associate with them, and I think that would be fine if her peers did the same but that doesn’t seem to be the case. I think that is telling, more than anything, how you treat people who can do nothing for you.
    You should treat everyone with respect.

    Also for me the Katy Perry thing also added to my suspicions, Perry is a 30 year old woman who has been through a horrible divorce, to the point where she considered suicide. After that I don’t think you sweat the small stuff. E.g. Miley called Katy Perry insulted her after the kiss comment and she just let it go. She could see she had upset her and she just let it slide, and the next time you saw them they were fine. But not this Taylor Swift thing, that is telling. You don’t call someone ‘Regina George’ for nothing. Also they way taylor broke the story, to ROLLINGSTONE, it was both calculating and manipulaive. So yh I repeat not the nicest person.

    (Also the same way she has never been shy about throwing her exes under the bus, doesn’t scream sweet)

  • Researchaholic

    My son actually worked with Taylor for a commercial. He said she was the sweetest person.


    Again not true! Katy Perry’s dancers said that she’s very nice but doesn’t hang out with them as much as Katy does. Big differece!

    In all the interviews her co workers are only praising her and saying that she is extremely nice and generous with people that she’s working/worked with. So don’t lie just because you don’t like her.


    Everyone that she’s worked with is saying that. Unfortunately girls that don’t like her or are from different fan base will pick a smallest thing to paint her as a horrible person.

  • Researchaholic

    Jay, I don’t know how close of a relationship you have with the people you are talking about. Here’s my first hand take from my son, who is only background at the moment. Background is not allowed to talk to the talent, this is the general rule. Professionals know that’s not a bad thing, this is about work and not time to be star struck. She took the time and initiative to walk up to him, start a conversation and actually compliment him! He said she was one of the sweetest people he’s ever worked with. So there’s someone she’s worked with, that in Hollywood terms she didn’t have to acknowledge, that she treated really well. Just my two cents I heard from someone really close to me.

  • Penny Dreadful

    I believe him. I think he’s a douche, but in this case I believe what the douche says. SHE is weird and WEIRD people flock to her. I said in another thread that she’s creepy and she reminds me of the cult leader in The Following. I stand by that.

  • Jay

    Background is not allowed to talk to Talent. Yes, they are. They spend to most time together for awards shows and especially during tours. Don’t be ridiculous.


    And now Kay is planning to diss Taylor at the Super Bowl. Very mature! And her dancers are so so unprofessional that as soon as Katy was free they quit. I wouldn’t be surprised if Katy told them that.
    I think it’s better for them to stay with Katy because at this point nobody is going to hire unreliable dancers

  • Camila Oliveira

    Eye roll.

  • gers

    lol how exactly do you know she’s planning to do this at the super bowl? did she herself tell you personally?

  • Penny Dreadful

    True. But he’s right.


    The same way that people know Taylor spoke about Katy when she said that Bad Blood is about female artist.

  • Lea

    Her fans are without a doubt the worst people I’ve ever encountered. The moment I dared to say “Nah, I just don’t like her music, not my thing” they bombarded me with insulsts and slurs and even threats. Creepy as hell!

  • gers

    swift has been known for her notoriously bitchy attitude. even the way she openly throws her exes under the bus through songs and interviews and acting like the victim show this. then she blames people calling her out for it on misogyny saying that bruno mars and ed sheeran don’t get called out for it but both of them have the decency to not tell the world who their songs are about unlike her (“We are never ever getting ever getting back together” being about jake gyllenhaal etc)


    We don’t know him or Taylor personally to know if it’s true or not. Yet, he’s the only one that I hear speaking about her – twice.

  • Revengefan0101

    This guy needs to go to rehab.

  • Lea

    Of course her co-workers and dancers and such are very careful to only say nice things, after all they still want to work in that business!

  • Molly1958

    How old is this dude? He sounds very young.


    They are lying? Then why all those pictures with Taylor and her co workers doing things together outside work. If she’s such a mean person they can do their job and go home.

  • dani

    and how do you know that????, not from Taylor, thats for sure

  • Lea

    one word: Contract.
    Her management and the record company will not allow her image to be tainted by bad press so dancers and such are contracted to make her look like she’s their BFF and a total sweetheart.
    Dont’ believe everything you see, there’s a lot more going on behind the scenes…


    Yeah and everything she does is PR and she doesn’t have a life.

    Also, even if you’re saying is true – which we can’t know, then every big name in entertainment is like that. Fake.

    Let us not label people.

  • Jenny

    He probably wants Taylor to write a song about him.

  • Lisa

    Sadly, he’s 36 and has 2 kids… so he obviously has no better priorities than be spending his time saying shitty things about Taylor and her fans.

  • Researchaholic

    Have you ever been on set Jay?

  • annibella

    i believe him .. she’s creepy, rude, mean and nasty … i’m so shocked people acually believe she’s nice .. it’s very obvious she’s not … she writes about haters and mean people REALLY?!?! she’s the biggest hater and the meanest person ever, she probably wrote these songs looking at the mirror, calling people names that fits her perfectly, she acts like a high school mean girl still with her cliques and her pathetic digs at others …
    she takes advantage of everyone around her including her fans whom, i’m not surprise, are just as mean as she is .. i mean look who they idolize. … aaand for the people that say “you don’t know her” the way she represent herself is more than enough to form a pretty good idea of the type of person she is, i don’t need to know her personally .. god forbid

  • Dory Phore

    “Taylor is very strategic with her friends and enemies”–translation: Taylor is a psychopath.

    Anyone can see that her public persona of “everyone’s bff” is carefully created. Taylor doesn’t have to feud with anyone directly. Her “minions,” like Lorde, et al, will fight on her behalf.

    The “PUBLIC” way she deals with her fans (inviting them to her home, sending them gifts, etc) is also very strategic in terms of “bolstering” her public image as a “nice person,” or good girl.

    There is lots of evidence that she’s vindictive and sociopathic. The “Jessica Hart” thing at the VS fashion show, for example.

  • Dory Phore

    What people are saying is that Swift’s “sweet” image is manufactured. Taylor will behave “sweetly” when the camera is around.

  • piste_five

    couldn’t have said it better myself!

  • DeeDee00

    I agree he seems obsessed with her. Everytime he opens his mouth he talks about her, a little creepy if you really don’t like person.

  • DeeDee00

    LOL….He using her as a stepping stool. Clearly no one knows who he really is.


    Does she overreacts or not, I don’t know. But saying ( by Jay) that she isn’t nice with her co workers and crew where is no actual evidence is called lying.
    And people labeling her as this horrible person are pretty hypocritical to me. At least she gives back to fans that made her popular, PR or not.

  • Penny Dreadful

    She LOVES attention, so what do you care?

  • Penny Dreadful

    I think they’re even crazier and meaner than Cumberbatch’s fans.

  • Effy

    I agree – a majority of Taylor Swift fans are crazy. I remember making a tumblr post about disliking Swift and I was flooded with TONS of messages and slurs in my inbox. Her fans are just as immature and “poor me” attitude as she is.
    Anyone who believes Taylors good-girl image needs to take a few psych classes, she’s definitely not all what she seems.

  • James D.

    Sociopathic? Well thank you doctor for your diagnose.

  • Fireblazes

    Shake it off…

  • rosso tifosi

    Lol, as if being strategic with your public image is something new in the world of celebrity!

  • rosso tifosi

    Also don’t judge people by their fans, especially online. You just have to see the Brangelina-Aniston fanwars to see the lunacy of fandom online & that is only one example, One Direction, Justin Bieber, Madonna, Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Gaga, JLaw…the list goes on forever with regards to crazy online fandom. Doesn’t mean any of them are scary/insane/vindictive/mean/abusive as some of their fans come across. Don’t judge someone by their fanbase online that they have noa ctual control over. You can only hope fans act in a way their favoured celebrity would appreciate, sadly some don’t.

  • JA

    One of those secrets he’s referring to is that she’s actually 30 years old.

  • JEN

    who the F**ck is Dilpo?

  • KT

    I am not a hater, I actually like TS music, but I kinda believe what he says.

  • Маргарита Бабовникова

    or he spend more time writing music than ts ever did?

  • dafaq

    the whole kanye/swift thing was an act to get the public to feel sorry for taylor and make her seem likable and relatable.That’s one of the many strategic moves taylor and her team made when it comes to creating the swift brand.

  • dafaq

    and if you ask me what did kanye benefit from this? he got attention which is what kanye loves. kanye loves the attention even if it makes him look like an asshole.He is that egotistical.


    LOL! Threats? hahaha. They’re one of the nicest and funniest people I encountered and I hated her music before 1989 album.
