On X, formerly known as Twitter, a fan tweeted a screenshot of the YouTube personality’s following list on Instagram.
Harry’s list showed that he followed celebrity manager Scooter Braun, 42.
The influencer following Scooter is problematic for Swifties because of the ongoing feud the pop star has with the businessman.
“Attention Swifties, there is a contestant on DWTS who is a Scooter Braun fan and follower,” the fan included in the tweet they shared.
“Please help us get him out by texting ‘charity, ‘jason’ or ‘xochitl’ to ‘21523’ during the live show #dwts#DWTSxTaylorSwift.”
The viral tweet was screenshot and uploaded in a forum on Reddit.
Several Swifties took to the Reddit thread, revealing they were on board with eliminating Harry from DWTS Tuesday night in support of Taylor.
“Oh the Swifties (that includes me!) will save my sweet Jason!,” a fan commented.
IN OR OUT?
Another added: “Oh fr if the swifties are on it, consider it done. We got this.”
A third fan agreed: “It might actually be enough to eliminate Harry- nothing like Swifties scorned.”
Among the people who agreed to vote off Harry, there were some who tried to be understanding instead of jumping on the bandwagon.
One fan defended: “I know I will get down voted but I’ve followed problematic celebrities forgetting to unfollow them when a scandal comes out.
I need to do that more thankfully I am not a celebrity that ppl look at who I am following, but then again he should unfollow him by now.”
TAYLOR AND SCOOTER’S BEEF EXPLAINED
The complications between Scooter and Taylor began partly due to a man named Scott Borchetta.
Scott owned Big Machine Records, with whom Taylor first signed as an artist when she was 15.
Taylor was Big Machine Records’ first client, and many others followed in her footsteps.
She decided after her sixth studio album, Reputation, that she would be signing her future music with Republic Records and Universal Music Group.
They’d made her a deal that she would own all her future masters, which Scott hadn’t done.
Taylor left Big Machine Records on seemingly good terms with Scott until mid-2019.
In June 2019, Scooter purchased Big Machine Records for $ 300 million, which included the masters of the first six of Taylor’s albums.
Taylor alleged that Scooter had bullied and manipulated her for years, including through his client Kanye West’s, 46, release of the song Famous.
As with all beef, there are multiple moving parts to this story.
In August 2019, Taylor announced on Good Morning America that she’d be re-rerecording her albums, which her contract would allow her to do beginning in 2020.
In November 2019, Taylor Swift was named Artist of the Decade at the American Music Awards, where she wanted to play a medley of her music, including many songs from her first six albums.
She claimed that Scott and Scooter wouldn’t approve it and also that they wouldn’t approve her use of recordings for her 2020 Netflix documentary Miss Americana.
