DJ Diplo Says Taylor Swift Fans Are 'Worst People in the World' After Twitter Feud

Taylor SwiftRemember back in late 2014, when Diplo threw shade at Taylor Swift, and then her BFF Lorde shot back and said he had a tiny package anyway? Well, apparently it was all a big misunderstanding, and they're all friendlies and whatnot. However, Katy Perry's sometimes boyfriend recently opened up about the repercussions that little "booty" had for him.

Apparently the music producer and DJ thought the November 2014 Twitter feud between him, T-Swizzle, and Lorde was "really dumb." In case you missed it, he tweeted, "Someone should make a kickstarter to get taylor swift a booty," to which the "Royals" singer replied, "should we do something about your tiny penis while we're at it(?)"

In an interview with the February 2015 issues of GQ, Diplo explained, "So many great albums came out that week, and all people talked about, on all the big press, was me vs. Lorde, and Kim Kardashian's butt. No one covered any music. And it's funny, because me and Lorde, we're actually friends, and it was a funny, in-jest conversation. So many tabloids used it to make it story, when it was not. Literally, it was such a tongue-in-cheek joke on both sides. I think Taylor Swift is such an impactful character, that it was because she was involved that it became really big."

Well, Kim Kardashian's butt did almost break the Internet. It was too big to be missed. (I apologize for nothing.)

Diplo may have thought it was all in good fun but he learned some important things about Tay Tay's fans -- they are very loyal to her.

"The repercussions are really bad. Like, Taylor Swift fans are really crazy. They threatened to murder me and stuff. It's really bizarre, and disgusting," the musician said. "They're the worst people in the world."

Whoa -- those are some fighting words, don't yah think? Diplo said that while he's a "pretty big fan" of Swift, he can barely believe how awfully her fans have behaved toward him. "They're like, 'I wish your kids had Down syndrome.' They're so evil. I dissed Lady Gaga before, and the gays were never even this mean. They're funny. These people are like mean-spirited, evil human beings," he said. "I'm not a politician. I shouldn't have to be under the microscope for people like that."

Then he said something sort of bizarre about her, and we can't tell if he's in awe or issuing a warning ... he dished, "She has like 40 million Twitter fans. Forty million! Yeah. It's crazy. I'm a fan, though. Her powers -- she's big. She's strong, bro. Taylor Swift is very strategic with her friends and enemies. And I know lots of secrets. I can't divulge, but I know a lot of stuff about her. And she's definitely ... there's definitely scary stuff going on ... And I'm scared. I'm scared for my life."

Um, that's kind of random. At least he admitted that he's a fan himself, and no hard hard feelings.

Do you think Diplo was really just having fun with the booty comment, or was intentionally slamming Taylor?
