Taylor Swift Under Fire Amid Accusations Of Black Stereotyping | Music News


A developing spat might be under way as US rapper Earl Sweatshirt labelled Taylor Swift’s new music video “inherently offensive” for its references to black culture. The rapper took to social network to release his angst regarding the “Shake It Off” music video by tweeting, “(The video is) perpetuating black stereotypes to the same demographic of white girls who hide their prejudice by proclaiming their love of the culture”.


The US Pop star might have antagonised a few people for her video’s use of ‘black culture’ due to its use of twerking, dancing with a boombox and trying to be ‘street’ against a ‘white culture’ backdrop, which involves elegant white ballet dancers that inadvertently creates an interesting dichotomy. Nevertheless neither Sweatshirt nor Swift has released any further details regarding the matter, so it looks as if nobody will understand the true meaning or the future implications of the video.
