Pop country singer Taylor Swift hasn’t landed on the most favorable side of her fellow music industrymates for the past year, and that’s had much to do with her choice of words and ways.
It would make sense, then, that she maintain a low-profile leading up to her next music release, which would hopefully put some of the controversy behind her.
But now that she’s making her return with a rather dark development for the American sweetheart, “Look What You Made Me Do,” the visuals for the project have left a bad, bitter taste in Black Twitter’s 140-character mouths — something like unsweetened lemonade, if you will.

Always stay gracious; best you can hope for is to continue to capitalize your whiteness while profiting off the work of black women. 🐍🐍🐍 pic.twitter.com/KONmPdO3e1— never mind the jazz. (@_CiaraJade) August 25, 2017
