Taylor Swift's "Look What You Made Me Do" Director Claims Beyoncé Technically Copied "Bad Blood"

Taylor Swift's music video director Joseph Kahn comes to the singer's defense again, and jokingly takes a jab at Beyoncé in the process.

Recording artist Taylor Swift (R) and director Joseph Kahn accept the Video of the Year award for 'Bad Blood' onstage during the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards at Microsoft Theater on August 30, 2015 in Los Angeles, California.

Everyone, please stop asking Joseph Kahn, director of Taylor Swift's "Look What You Made Me Do" music video, about the comparisons between his video and Beyoncé's "Formation." In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Kahn trolled the BeyHive again by claiming that Queen B "copied 'Bad Blood.'" 

"It’s not 'Formation' at all," Kahn said. "They try to say she’s wearing a black crop top and Beyoncé wore a black crop top. But they don’t realize in 2015 in 'Bad Blood,' Taylor Swift was wearing a black crop top. I really do think, by the way, that Beyoncé copied 'Bad Blood.'"

Kahn shared a link to the interview on Twitter, adding that he was basically trolling everyone without explicitly saying those words. 

And of course we know Kahn is joking, because who honestly believes that Beyoncé is trying to get style cues from Swift? When Kahn defended the "Look What You Made Me Do" music video in August, he said the visuals were "not in [Beyoncé's] art space." And he's right. 

Reporters/fans/Beyhive members, please stop mentioning the "Look What You Made Me Do" music video around Kahn. Beyoncé is too busy getting everything together her appearance in Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Harvey Relief to worry about what some director has to say about her. People have already forgotten about the video anyway. Let it die, like the Old Taylor (trademark: T. Swift).
