Taylor Swift fans are literally dying all over the world, and it’s all her fault. Leading up to and after the release of the Harry Styles-inspired “Out Of The Woods” at midnight on Oct. 14, Taylor trolled both Tumblr and Twitter for fan reactions, and they’re pretty funny. R.I.P. us.
‘Out Of The Woods’: Taylor Swift’s Fans Go Nuts On Social Media — Her Retweets
For many Tumblr users, the idea of a celebrity lurking their tag is the stuff of nightmares. Seriously, Taylor — don’t go too deep into that rabbit hole.
However, Tay, 24, has become somewhat of a seasoned vet of Tumblr, and she reblogged some pretty hilarious reactions. One fan recorded a video of herself in tears over the bridge of “Out Of The Woods,” calling herself a “pathetic trash mess.”
As a breaking news alert read, “thousands of Swifties dead, still unclear if we are out of the woods.”
Taylor also retweeted a few meltdowns:
are we out of the woods yet are we out of the woods yet are we out of the woods yet are we out of the woods yet are we out of the woods yet

Taylor Swift’s ‘Out Of The Woods’ Is About Harry Styles
While Tay has not outright said that the song is about ex Harry Styles, 20, the lyrics definitely match up to their brief fling back in late 2012.
“This was a relationship where I was kind of living day-to-day wondering where it was going, if it was going to go anywhere, if it was going to end the next day,” Taylor revealed on Good Morning America about the song. “It was a relationship where you kind of never feel like you’re standing on solid ground.”
Despite the song having a clear target, it’s obvious that Taylor doesn’t really have any hard feelings about the relationship. Unlike John Mayer, 36, who was totally caught out on Taylor’s “Dear John,” it doesn’t appear as if Harry necessarily did Taylor wrong — it was just one of those things.
So, HollywoodLifers (and Swifties), have you lost your collective chills over “Out Of The Woods?” Let us know! (Listen to “Out Of The Woods” here if you haven’t already! Or if you just need to listen to it several thousand more times.)
