Taylor Swift has come out with a new song titled "Shake It Off."
In a Yahoo Live Stream chat yesterday, the singer explained this track as a sort of Eff You to the haters, saying she's learned not to grow “bitter” or “insane” over personal slights.
And now here comes Earl Sweatshirt to see if Swift really means that.
The rapper wrote on Twitter last night that Swift’s video (which partially features her dancing alongside Twerking women and breakdancers) is “inherently offensive and ultimately harmful.”
Sweatshirt noted that he hasn’t viewed the footage, but it’s clearly “perpetuating black stereotypes to the same demographic of white girls who hide their prejudice by proclaiming their love of the culture.”
Lily Allen actually faced a similar rebuke for her "Hard Out Here" video.
Sweatshirt may wanna watch the "Shake It Off" video if he wants folks to take his stance seriously, but what do you make of his take?
