Lorde Apologizes For 'Insensitive' Comment About Taylor Swift Friendship

Lorde is apologizing after using a strange analogy to describe her friendship with Taylor Swift.

In a recent interview, the 20-year-old songstress said that being friends with Taylor is “like having a friend with an autoimmune disease” because you can’t go certain places or do certain things.

Lorde immediately received backlash for the comment, which many perceived to be insensitive to people suffering from autoimmune diseases.

After seeing the negative resposne, Lorde took to her Twitter to issue an apology.

“didn’t mention taylor, but regardless, i f**ked up & that was really insensitive. i’m sorry,” she wrote in response to a fan.

    Sh apologised for that?! Of ffs! People should just stop talking altogether…I mean what is the point when everything is deemed “insensitive and offensive”?

    my best friend’s step-mother makes $85 hourly on the computer . She has been fired from work for nine months but last month her pay check was $17089 just working on the computer for a few hours. see it here ++++++++++

    Exactly. I mean, I understand being sensitive to people’s conditions. I actually have certain health conditions and such, but I was not at all offended. It wasn’t like she was making fun of people with diseases; she was just merely saying that sometimes there are limitations/restrictions that she had to work around. It was a weird comparison, but not a malicious one. People need to chill…

    Of course she would say something like that, all of Taylor swift’s “supposed friends” are douchebags and Lorde is no different.

  • Drawoh Divad

    Abby, get a life. Your remark makes you appear to be a “douchebag” yourself. But you probably don’t get that, so it likely means nothing to you.

  • Steven Holbrook

    God, what is going on in this country? Ella’s comment was an apt analogy that you could find in the SAT test

  • J Stone

    Actually she was on the right track in comparing the lying tramp to a disease. I would say a raging case of the trots with some projectile vomiting would be a better description.

    As someone with multiple chronic autoimmune diseases, that reads like a major diss towards Taylor than anything else. Annoying as hell with no known cure!

  • sickofthepcpolice

    Stop apologizing for everything that is Nothing. Good grief. WTH is happening to our country. She meant absolutely nothing by that comment.
