Taylor Swift may seem just fine after news of her breakup from Joe Alwyn after more than six years. But her fans aren’t. Swifties were devastated by the news for several reasons. The singer-songwriter not only wrote about their love over the years, but he even has writing credits on several of Swift’s songs. Some fans were concerned that Joe would one day leave her.
Swift, 33, is on her Eras Tour in full swing despite the breakup. Over the weekend, a fan in the crowd held up a sign that read: “You OK?” (A nod to her music video for “You Belong With Me“). Taylor gave the fan a thumbs-up in response. Meanwhile, the British actor has been keeping an incredibly low profile.
Alwyn, 32, is currently filming the upcoming movie The Brutalist, which also stars Adrien Brody, Guy Pearce, and Felicity Jones. However, another one of his hot, younger co-stars, Emma Laird, has been getting the heat for posting the actor on Instagram. The 24-year-old Scottish actress came under attack for associating herself with Alwynn. So much so, she had to turn off the comments from the incoming Swifties.
Though Laird shared photos of herself and her other co-stars, the solo photo of Alwyn on a scooter was enough to set off Taylor Swift’s fans. Because she posed with the same scooters a few months prior, Swifties took that as an insinuation that she was the cause of their breakup. Since comments were shut off from her recent post, Swifties aired out their grievances on her January post.
The Shade Room
“January or march?” wrote a few fans. Another person commented, “dear joe (30 minutos version ).” Quoting lyrics from Swift’s “The Great War,” another fan wrote, “and maybe it was ego swinging, maybe it was her.” One fan said, “alexa play home wrecker by Marina.” Meanwhile, another fan said, “Is it weird this was January and your latest post with this same scooter you caption March gurl stop lying. @joe.alwyn thank you for going away. Princess doesn’t need a jealous insecure little man who’s jealous of a woman doing better than him.” Another Swiftie wrote, “It’s giving lookalike…”
Laird’s other posts feature similar comments, with others taking to TikTok to push their theories of a possible relationship. One person used audio from Swift’s 2010 song, “Better Than Revenge,” to shade the actress. “She’s not a saint and she’s not what you think, She’s an actress. She’s better known for the things that she does. On the mattress.”
