Taylor Swift got called out by one person you won’t believe

Taylor Swift is the biggest pop star in the world.

But that doesn’t mean Swift is universally popular.

And Taylor Swift got called out by one person you won’t believe.

Foo Fighters frontman calls out Swift for not playing live

Dave Grohl has been the frontman for the popular rock band the Foo Fighters since the 1990s.

Grohl formed the Foo Fighters after playing drums for Nirvana in the band’s 1991 album “Nevermind,” which ignited the grunge phase that dominated American music in the mid-1990s.

Nirvana broke up following lead singer Kurt Cobain’s suicide in the 1990s, which led to the second act of Grohl’s career.

During a recent Foo Fighters show in London, Grohl took aim at Swift, who was in the process of playing to sold-out crowds at Wembley Stadium.

“We were joking about the Taylor Swift tour earlier,” Grohl began.

Grohl then referenced the infamous wrath of Swift’s fan base – known as “Swifties” – who instantly mobilize to attack anyone who dares to criticize their idol.

“I know that she’s on her Eras Tour. I’m telling you, man, you don’t want to suffer the wrath of Taylor Swift,” Grohl began.

Grohl then cracked a joke at the Foo Fighters’ longevity – they’ve released 11 albums in their early 30-year run – and said they could their tour the “Errors” tour because they’ve had some mishaps on stage since they play their music live, in a dig at Swift, who Grohl implied performs to backing tracks.

“So we like to call our tour the Errors Tour, because I feel like we’ve had more than a few eras, and more than a few f*****errors as well. Just a couple. That’s because we actually play live. What? Just saying. We’re a live band,” Grohl added.

“You guys like raw, live rock and roll music, right? You came to the right f**** place,” Grohl continued.

Swift responds

Swift appeared to respond to Grohl at a subsequent London show.

During the performance, Swift made a point to single out her band for recognition from the audience, with Swift making sure to note that they played for the entire 3.5-hour show.

“Every one of my band members, every single one of our crew, my band who’s gonna be playing live for you for 3.5 hours tonight, they deserve this so much, and so does every one of my fellow performers,” Swift declared.

Grohl’s shot at Swift may stem from the fact that Swift’s fans harassed Grohl’s 17-year-old daughter online after she made a comment about Swift’s use of a private jet.

Swift’s legal team threatened Jack Sweeney, a college student who runs a social media account that tracks celebrities’ private jet use.

The lawyers wrote that Swift would “have no choice but to pursue any and all legal remedies” unless Sweeney immediately stopped his “stalking and harassing behavior.”

To some, it looked like a billionaire celebrity was trying to bully a college student who held them accountable for claiming to care about the planet while running up a massive carbon footprint.

Swift never stepped in and asked her fans to leave Grohl’s daughter alone.

And that could be the source of the dig at Swift by Grohl for not playing live music.
