‘Bad Blood’ video director compares Taylor Swift to Nicole Brown Simpson

This feud is only getting more heated...

There is NO coming back from this.

We’ve had plenty of celebrity feuds in the past, Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj, Taylor Swift and Katy Perry, Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris, Taylor Swift and… almost everyone on the planet apparently.

But considering the actions of Kim Kardashian in exposing the Bad Blood singer, it seems Taylor may have finally found her match.

People have been quick to declare themselves Team Kim or Team Taylor, with #KimExposedTaylorParty trending worldwide yesterday.

One person who has decided to brave the legions of Kim followers everywhere and have his say is American film and music video director Joseph Kahn.

Joseph has directed music videos in the past such as Britney Spears’ Toxic, Pussycat Dolls’ When I Grow Up but more recently he won a Grammy in 2015 for Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood video.

Given the ties between himself and the Shake It Off singer, he took to Twitter to support Taylor but his angry rant has taken a darker, ignorant tone in comparing the media slaughter of Taylor Swift to the murder of Nicole Brown Simpson in 1994.

The video director began his tirade on Twitter by clarifying that Kanye West did not run the “I made that bitch famous” line by Taylor Swift.


What ensues is a shocking statement, comparing deceased lawyer Robert Kardashian’s defence of murderer O.J. Simpson to Kim Kardashian’s exposé on Taylor.


The director showed no signs of apology, standing behind the dramatic statements he declared on the social media site.



Not leaving his attack on Kim Kardashian there, he went on to criticise the Kardashian family’s rise to fame, advising people to release a sex tape to emulate Kim’s career.

He also took the time to deem Kim “one of the most untalented women in the world”.



People took to Twitter to slate the director for his barrage of controversial tweets.
