Taylor Swift Fans Are Convinced The Singer Created A Fake Band To Get Back At Scooter Braun!

Taylor Swift fans think she outsmarted Scooter Braun with 'LWYMMD' cover

Taylor Swift doesn’t let go of bad blood easily, especially when it comes to her battle with Scooter Braun.

Months after his purchase of her former music label Big Machine Label Group, which included the rights to the masters of her music catalog up until 2018, the singer’s reputation for being rightly petty lives on with her latest feat.

On Sunday, Swift took to social media to tease a new cover of her hit single Look What You Made Me Do by Jack Leopards & The Dolphin Club, featured on the newest episode of Killing Eve. She wrote:

“VERY STOKED about this cover of lwymmd on @KillingEve by Jack leopards & the dolphin club!!”

But fans caught on quickly there is no band by the name of Jack Leopards & The Dolphin Club…

Doing further research into the dark remake, it made sense the A-lister was credited as a composer-lyricist alongside Jack Antonoff, Richard Fairbrass, Fred Fairbrass, and Rob Manzoli, just like the original. There was one dead giveaway though that Taylor might have played a part in the Killing Eve cover: Nils Sjöberg is listed as producer.

The Swedish name became famous in 2016 when it was revealed it was actually Swift’s pseudonym for ex Calvin Harris‘ song This Is What You Came For. It’s also the same name featured on a tombstone in her Look What You Made Me Do music video, where she’s seen burying her former self.

So, whose vocals are actually on the new track?? Clearly not the recognizable Antonoff’s, followers were convinced the pop star’s brother Austin Swift is singing instead, especially considering the younger Swift supposedly used “The Dophin Club” for his Twitter handle at some time. This, on top of The New York Post‘s report he was seen at the studio with the Bleachers‘ frontman late in 2019.

Swifties had enough to say online about her maneuver, with some writing:

“I know Taylor Swift is not everyone’s cup of tea but creating a whole fake band just so a terrible man does not profit off of her work being used on KILLING EVE of all the shows is absolutely inspirational.”

“taylor Swift TERRIFIES ME like she really sat there and planned out exactly how to get lwymmd on killing eve without giving scooter or scott a cent…….I love her so much”
