Justin Bieber weighed in on the incident between Taylor Swift and talent manager, Scooter Braun.
Firstly, Justin apologised to Taylor for a post he made earlier taking sides with Scooter Braun and Kanye. He then went on to criticize Taylor for coming for Scooter Braun.
Taylor Swift, in her initial post expressed outrage that her master recordings was being sold to Scooter Braun, a man she said has bullied her over time.
But Bieber didn’t agree and he shared a photo of Scooter Braun and Kanye West and capioned it, “Taylor Swift, what’s up.”
In the photo shared by Bieber, Scooter’s face was circled and written on it were the words, “This is Scooter Braun, bullying me on social media when I was at my lowest point. He’s about to own all the music I’ve ever made.”
The post was aimed at mocking Taylor and Justin later apologised for it. He went on to tell Taylor Swift that Scooter has always had her back and both he(Bieber) and Scooter love her. He added, “when you try and deface someone i loves character thats crossing a line..”
Sharing an old photo of himself and Taylor, he wrote:
Hey Taylor. First of all i would like to apologize for posting that hurtful instagram post, at the time i thought it was funny but looking back it was distasteful and insensitive.. I have to be honest though it was my caption and post that I screenshoted of scooter and Kanye that said “taylor swift what up” he didnt have anything to do with it and it wasnt even a part of the conversation in all actuality he was the person who told me not to joke like that.. Scooter has had your back since the days you graciously let me open up for you.! As the years have passed we haven’t crossed paths and gotten to communicate our differences, hurts or frustrations. So for you to take it to social media and get people to hate on scooter isn’t fair. What were you trying to accomplish by posting that blog? seems to me like it was to get sympathy u also knew that in posting that your fans would go and bully scooter. Anyway, One thing i know is both scooter and i love you. I feel like the only way to resolve conflict is through communication. So banter back and fourth online i dont believe solves anything. I’m sure Scooter and i would love to talk to you and resolve any conflict, pain or or any feelings that need to be addressed. Neither scooter or i have anything negative to say about you we truly want the best for you. I usually don’t rebuttal things like this but when you try and deface someone i loves character thats crossing a line..
