Earl Sweatshirt: Taylor Swift's 'Shake It Off' Video Is 'Inherently Offensive'
Earl Sweatshirt is not a fan of Taylor Swift's brand new "Shake It Off" music video. The Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All rapper criticized the dance-filled clip in a string of Twitter posts despite the fact that he hadn't watched it himself.
"Haven't watched the taylor swift video and I don't need to watch it to tell you that it's inherently offensive and ultimately harmful," he tweeted and went on accusing the country/pop cutie of "perpetuating black stereotypes to the same demographic of white girls who hide their prejudice by proclaiming their love of the culture."
"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 n***a," he added.
"Shake It Off" is the lead single off Swift's newly-announced album, "1989". Its music video was directed by Mark Romanek and features the 24-year-old superstar trying her hand at some different dance styles. She's also seen singing and dancing alongside some twerking ladies and some breakdancers in the visuals.
