You know what this Taylor Swift video is missing? Some nice graffiti by Bieber. Let"s be urban, everyone! Yay, cupcakes.— Flan Emoji (@atrak) August 18, 2014
for instance, those of you who are afraid of black people but love that in 2014 it's ok for you to be trill or twerk or say nigga— EARL (@earlxsweat) August 19, 2014
Taylor Swift is twerking while Ferguson is burning. That's pretty much America in 140 characters or less.— D'Brickashaw (@DragonflyJonez) August 19, 2014
While others believe she's just trying to have fun:
