Taylor Swift's Video Congratulating Russell Westbrook's MVP Win Has People Shaking Their Heads

"She never watched a basketball game in her life."

Published June 27, 2017

People can be harsh at times. Taylor Swift knows. The pop princess immediately caught the wrath of Twitter trolls after tweeting out a video of herself congratulating Russell Westbrook for winning the MVP last night at the NBA Awards.

"Remember I was the one who taught you to play basketball," Swift jokes to start the clip. "I was the one who taught you to dribble, to shoot hoops. I remember the first time you beat me at basketball. I was very upset, and you said…'You just have to shake it off.' And I got an idea. So essentially, we have each other to thank for these careers. That’s why I’m a part of your congratulations video, because we just, we go back 20 years. Actually, we’ve never met. That’s a fake story, but I wish it were the truth. You are amazing. You’re the MVP. I’m so happy for you."

The well-intended message didn’t prevent her from being dragged by hoop fans with zero chill, as they shook their heads in disgust over the clip. Don’t they know that Brodie is a Taylor Swift fan? 

  1. Here’s the message that Taylor Swift sent, congratulating Russ on his first MVP

    It was all in good fun — but try telling that to Twitter trolls.

  2. People picked their best Russ scowls to show how he might have felt to get the MVP congrats from her

    DAMN!

  3. Thunder fans claimed that the cringe-worthy factor of Taylor’s clip was all too real

    Is it that bad?

  4. Others asked her to delete and declared that she'd never watched a basketball game in her life

    Zero chill whatsoever.

  5. But don’t they know that Russ is a certified Taylor Swift fan with receipts as proof?

    They probably know and don’t care.

  6. All this commotion and Brodie is probably like…

    Bruh!
