Let the world know that the latest celebrity feud was sparked by an allegedly-copied crop top. Taylor Swift's music video director just came for Beyoncé, and the Beyhive is not having it.
Joseph Kahn, the man who helmed Swift's latest music video for "Look What You Made Me Do" as well as videos for four of her 1989 tracks, including "Bad Blood," has recently been receiving flak for a moment in the "LWYMMD" video that seemingly borrows from Bey's "Formation" video.
When asked about the scene comparison by The Los Angeles Times, Kahn was quick to shut down the notion that Swift stole from the Lemonade artist, as he previously did over Twitter. However, that didn't stop the director from claiming that Beyoncé, whom he worked with on two Destiny's Child music videos, stole ideas from the "Blank Space" singer.

"It’s not 'Formation' at all. [Fans] try to say she’s wearing a black crop top and Beyoncé wore a black crop top. But they don’t realize in 2015 in 'Bad Blood,' Taylor Swift was wearing a black crop top."
Kahn could have left it at that — but then he said this, which sent a siren through the soul of Bey fans everywhere.
"I really do think, by the way, that Beyoncé copied 'Bad Blood.'"
Naturally, the Beyhive went in on the director for suggesting such a thing.
Some people on Twitter are convinced that Kahn must be joking (the L.A. Times piece doesn't mention his tone), while others are flabbergasted that we would suggest Beyoncé wearing a crop top was anywhere close to stealing Swift's look.
Others pointed out that it's not the first time Kahn has called out female celebrities: He previously posted a vulgar tweet about Miley Cyrus and suggested that the Kardashians are only famous because of Kim's sex tape and their connection to the O.J. Simpson trial.
However, it's the Beyhive that Kahn seems to have the real vendetta against.
"Why is everyone afraid of the Beyhive? What can they do? Pop out of your twitter screen and force you to wear Gucci?," tweeted the "Out Of The Woods" director.
Well, maybe not. But they can certainly eviscerate you on Twitter.
