Director Joseph Kahn trolls angry Taylor Swift fans over upcoming ‘Delicate’ music video

"No robots please"

Director Josh Kahn has responded to criticism from Taylor Swift fans ahead of the release of her new music video for ‘Delicate’.

Yesterday saw Swift announce that the video for ‘Delicate’ would be arriving on March 11 with the iHeartRadio Awards.

However, Swifties have taken to Twitter to call out Kahn for making her videos too ‘futuristic’ in the seven that has directed:

Khan then responded to fans, pointing out the multiple instances that his work with Swift did not feature any robots.

“‘Joseph make something original. Make Wildest Dreams 2.0. Exactly like that. Thank you’,” he wrote. “You can stop sending me fan concepts lol, video was shot weeks ago.”

He continued: “In retrospect you are right, I put way too much robots and fighting in the ‘Wildest Dreams’ video. Honestly I should have put five less spaceships in ‘BLANK SPACE’. It was a little much. My bad. Rewatching ‘OUT OF THE WOODS’. Goddammit what was I thinking with that lightsaber fight? Didn’t fit the song at all.”

He added: “Buy wigs.”


Meanwhile, last week saw Taylor Swift confirm support acts for her tour, where she’ll be joined by Charli XCX and Camila Cabello.
