Not even a week ago, Taylor Swift was accused of being a bona fide bird hater when it was reported that conservationists in New Zealand were pissed about her music video crew nearly trampling over the nests of endangered baby birds. TayTay was filming a music video on Auckland’s Bethells Beach, which is home to endangered baby dotterels. Activists say that production was allowed to have a maximum of 2 vehicles on the beach, but they counted up to a dozen vans and off-road vehicles driving around the sand. Activists said that having all those cars on the sand put baby bird lives in danger! Taylor’s crew denied that they broke the terms of their permit and offered to donate money to the dotterel breeding program. But it was too late. The message was heard loud and clear: Taylor Swift HATES birds!
Taylor’s Damage Control Department doesn’t mess around, so of course, she Instagrammed a picture of her having a moment with a bird in Australia. Taylor posted that pic with the caption:
Making friends on Hamilton Island
Why that shameless, evil little corn husk doll. I see her trying to act like she’s good with the bird community. Either that bird is really a kitten in a bird costume OR that bird is a traitor who betrayed its kind by taking birdseed from a bird hater for a damage control photo-op. If that bird didn’t caca on her after that picture was taken, it should really, really be ashamed of itself.
