Taylor Swift ha avuto una risposta piuttosto “rapida” al contraccolpo che ha dovuto affrontare dopo aver pubblicato il video musicale del suo nuovo singolo, “Anti-hero”, che ha scritto e diretto lei stessa.

La cantante vincitrice di un Grammy ha condiviso che il video mostra i suoi “scenari da incubo e pensieri invadenti”, che apparentemente includono insicurezze sul suo peso e sulla sua immagine corporea. Nel video musicale, Swift cammina su una scala che mostra la parola “grasso” invece di un numero reale, mentre un clone di Swift scruta da sopra la sua spalla in disaccordo. Non ci è voluto molto tempo prima che attirasse critiche, con molti fan che accusavano il cantante di essere grassofobico e insensibile. Un fan twittato che Swift stava contribuendo alla “stigmatizzazione della parola grasso”, mentre un altro disse che la scena era un “modo di merda per descrivere le lotte per l’immagine del suo corpo”.

Despite this, the "All Too Well" singer still sparked controversy, causing her to make edits to the music video itself.

Taylor Swift removed controversial scene from 'Anti-hero' music video

Taylor Swift and her team have not given a statement regarding the backlash just yet, but they responded by cutting the "fat" scale scene from the "Anti-hero" music video — at least on Apple Music. Fans will likely see changes on other platforms soon.

But even after the change, online arguments remained, with fans saying the edits were unnecessary and shouldn't have been done from the get-go. "Uh what? I didn't think of this as fatphobic when I first saw this, people are so offended by everything nowadays," one fan said, with another fan sounded off, "im lost, how is it fatphobic? isn't she just talking about society labeling every girl fat?" Also, another fan worried that Swift might stop opening up about her personal struggles publicly. "she will probably never speak up about her insecurities again since everyone got mad at her," they wrote. "the video wasnt fatphobic whatsoever."

Swifties weren't the only ones defending the singer. "The View" hosts also made their feelings heard. "They missed the point," Sunny Hostin said (via Entertainment Weekly). "She was describing a personal experience, and quite frankly, it's a personal experience a lot of women experience... You get on the scale and you're a perfectly normal weight and all you see is fat." Meanwhile, Whoopi Goldberg pleaded for everyone to "leave her a** alone," adding that she understands what Swift was trying to convey. "You can never be just what you are. Everybody wants you to be something more, be less this, more that, and it's what people do to each other on social media."
