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.
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.
