Popular singer/songwriter, Justin Bieber has defended long-time manager, Scooter Braun after Taylor Swift released a statement criticising him for buying her music catalogue. Her statement came in response to Braun’s acquisition of Big Machine Records, which holds the rights to Swift’s first six albums.
Defending his manager, Justin Bieber took to his Instagram page to share a throwback picture of him and Taylor Swift but began by first apologizing to the singer for sharing “hurtful” Instagram post in 2016 of him FaceTiming with her arch enemies Kanye West and Scooter, writing “Taylor Swift what up?”. He further stated that while he is sorry for the post, he is upset with the “Me” singer for writing a lengthy Tumblr post that was highly critical of the 38-year-old music manager.
Hey Taylor. First of all i would like to apologize for posting that hurtful instagram post, at the time i thought it was funny but looking back it was distasteful and insensitive.
I have to be honest though it was my caption and post that I screenshoted of scooter and Kanye that said “Taylor Swift what up” he didn’t have anything to do with it and it wasnt even a part of the conversation in all actuality he was the person who told me not to joke like that.
Scooter has had your back since the days you graciously let me open up for you.! As the years have passed we haven’t crossed paths and gotten to communicate our differences, hurts or frustrations.
So for you to take it to social media and get people to hate on scooter isn’t fair. What were you trying to accomplish by posting that blog? seems to me like it was to get sympathy u also knew that in posting that your fans would go and bully scooter.
Anyway, One thing i know is both scooter and i love you. I feel like the only way to resolve conflict is through communication. So banter back and fourth online i dont believe solves anything.
I’m sure Scooter and i would love to talk to you and resolve any conflict, pain or or any feelings that need to be addressed. Neither scooter or i have anything negative to say about you we truly want the best for you.
I usually don’t rebuttal things like this but when you try and deface someone i loves character thats crossing a line.
