Another day, another feud! Fans are getting vocal, taking sides between Taylor Swift and Avril Lavigne, following the two singers’ online shade. Check out some of the best social media responses!
When Taylor Swift, 25, liked a photo online on Aug. 23 which depicted her interaction with fans compared to those of other celebrities, Avril Lavigne, 30, quickly responded, accusing Taylor of passing judgment on others. The tiff has, of course, incited fans to side with either lady, and we’ve rounded up some of the most scathing– and hilarious– reactions from the web. Enjoy!
In the photo collage which Taylor liked, Tay is seen interacting with some of her many fans, literally hugging and kissing them. Unfavorably, pics of other artists are seen, showing less intimate meetings. Britney Spears is pictured, looking on the brink of awkward combustion, posing with a fan while being sure not to let any of her limbs touch the poor guy.
Similarly, Kanye West could not have looked less pleased to be taking a selfie with two beaming fans, and Katy Perry stood at a literal arm’s length from one of her fans, only touching his shoulders. In Avril’s pic she is photographed standing near a fan (“next to” would be a bit too generous), smiling nervously.
However, Avril wants Taylor– and everyone– to know that she loves her fans just as much as Taylor, and it serves no one to judge others. “Comparison is judging and judging a person does not define who they are it defines who you are,” Avril Tweeted following Taylor’s apparent approval of the fan-created pic collage. “We all Love our fans,” she added, posting a link to the original picture. Scroll through some of the most virulent fan responses to the feud below!
Where do you guys fall in terms of this feud? Are you Team Taylor or Team Avril, HollywoodLifers?
