Taylor Swift has seemingly chucked a Healthy dose of shade at all those rumours of her ‘awkward’ hotel lobby encounter with her ex Harry Styles by liking a mock headline about the whole night on Tumblr.
The post in question was a photo of the TMZ headline which started it all, with some Photoshopped alterations which mock the site (and everyone else’s) assumptions that the whole encounter was more awkward than, well, anything else that’s ever happened ever.
Like those times when you’ve asked someone what they said three times, you can’t ask anymore and then you actually have to give an answer.
ANYWAY. Photos and videos of Taylor, 25, supposedly doing the awkward turtle after bumping into her ex Harry, 20, started circulating earlier this week after TMZ shared them under the headline: “Taylor Swift Shakes Off Harry Styles During Extremely Icy Encounter.”
Although it was a great use of Tay’s classic tune, many fans were outraged that people are still assuming things are awkward between the two and took to Tumblr to mock the whole thing with the altered headline: “NOTHING HAPPENED BUT IF WE WRITE THE HEADLINE LIKE THIS IT MAKES IT SEEM LIKE SOMETHING DID HAPPEN.”
Oh, and what’s that? Even Tay liked it? With the caption “god bless”? SHADE THROWN.
Yup, as shown in the photo above, Taylor herself apparently liked the post and added “god bless,” suggesting that this is her way of saying ‘look, nothing happened I was just looking at photos of my cats and deciding what to order for dinner, alright?!’
Best. Tumblr. Like. EVER. Even better than the whole ‘No it’s Becky’ affair.
If it really was the real TayTay who liked the photo, it’s probably a big hint that she finds the whole situation totally hilarious and we probably should too, because it’s all cool between them.
Probably because their relationship ended in 2013. TWO YEARS AGO, PEOPLE.
Haterz gonna hate, hate, hate, hate. hate.
Original reports surrounding the ex-couple’s ‘icy’ encounter at the Sunset Marquis hotel suggested that Tay completed avoided Harry’s eye contact when the two met at Kings of Leon’s Caleb Followill’s birthday, along with Tay’s BFFs Haim.
According to TMZ, #Haylor’s body language spoke volumes as she spent their brief time together looking down at her phone, reportedly not saying a single word to the One Direction bandmate.
Admittedly, the whole thing doesn’t look like the most comfortable of encounters, but perhaps they were just majorly conscious of the swarm of paps around them.
And if she was THAT uncomfortable, would she not make some excuse about needing to call her cats and leave?
Not that we’ve ever done that. Ever.
Our hearts can’t handle Haylor 2.0, so we’re going to go with the assumption that *that* Tumblr like really was Taylor, and that she’s trying to tell us all to have some chill.
Taylor Swift: Sassy Tumblr liker since 2015. Hurrah.
