Beyhive Rips Taylor Swift's Director For Saying Beyoncé Copied 'Bad Blood' Video

Joseph Kahn

Since "Look What You Made Me Do" dropped, director Joseph Kahn has been on a defensive tear for the video and the artist behind it.

A battle royal has started between the fans of Beyoncé and Taylor Swift over who's music video copied whose.

The director has been embroiled in a bitter beef with the fanbase since they drew comparisons between Taylor's latest video "Look What You Made Me Do" and Bey's "Formation". Some Beyhive members felt that "LWYMMD", which Kahn directed, copied Beyonce's "Formation" video.

Are you Team Swift or Team Bey? "She's an unbelievable person", but Taylor's new video "is not in her art space", with all due respect to the wife of Jay-Z.

The scene in question is where Swift is wearing a black crop top, shorts, and fishnet stockings while dancing with male choreographers. The #LWYMMDvideo is not in her art space. But they don't realize in 2015 in "Bad Blood, ' Taylor Swift was wearing a black crop top".

"I really do think, by the way, that Beyonce copied Bad Blood", he added.

"It's not "Formation" at all", Kahn said when the subject of his Twitter war with the Beyhive came up during a Times chat about "Bodied", his unapologetically brazen satire about race, hip-hop, cultural appropriation and freedom of speech.

But it's clear that Kahn knew what he was getting himself into with that LA Times quote.

Kahn later confirmed what was, in all honesty, pretty obvious - his Beyonce comments/TankTopGate weren't meant to be taken seriously.
