After Taylor Swift asked him to perform with her in concert, T.I. made a backhanded comment about the innocent country crooner. How rude!

Nobody should mess with Taylor Swift — she’s America’s Sweetheart! That said, even people who are her friends — like T.I. — say rude things about the 22-year-old country singer and it’s totally uncalled for.

On his reality show, T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle, T.I. filmed his guest performance with Taylor, while she was on tour in Atlanta. While contemplating her invitation, T.I. joked to the camera, “Do I choose street cred or Hollywood?”

Then, throughout the entire segment, the rapper laughed about the differences between White people on tour and African Americans (like the nice dressing rooms, the healthy food and no swearing). Although he did make sure to thank Taylor for the opportunity to perform alongside her at the sold out concert, it seemed like he was a little ashamed of himself at the same time.

Taylor, on the other hand, couldn’t have been more welcoming to T.I. and his entire entourage.

“Singing ‘Live Your Life’ with TI tonight was unreal,” Taylor tweeted after the show Oct. 2. “LOUDEST screams from the crowd, 14,000 people, hands in the air- welcome back @Tip!!”
