Oh no, he didn't. Music video director Joseph Kahn courted controversy on Monday, July 18, when he tweeted his support of Taylor Swift and compared her to O.J. Simpson's murdered ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson.
"Ain't the first time the Kardashians supported the murder of an innocent blonde woman," tweeted Kahn, 43, who directed Swift's "Bad Blood" video, as the feud between the singer and Kim Kardashian escalated after the reality star Snapchatted a phone conversation between her husband, Kanye West, and Swift before he released his song "Famous."
The shocking tweet was a reference to Kardashian's late father, Robert Kardashian, who defended Simpson in his trial for the murders of his blonde-haired ex-wife, Nicole, and her friend Ron Goldman. The former NFL star was acquitted of the killings.
In the phone call leaked by the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star on Sunday, July 17, Swift, 26, seemed to sign off on the rapper's controversial "Famous" lyric about her, something that she previously denied knowing about.
The line in the song is, "I feel like me and Taylor still might have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous." Shortly after the Snapchats were posted, the "Blank Space" singer shared her side of the story on Instagram, saying that she was unaware she would be referred to as "that bitch" in the rap.
Celebs including Selena Gomez, Chloë Grace Moretz, Ruby Rose, Demi Lovato and Khloé Kardashian chimed in on the feud on social media, but Kahn was unapologetic about his scathing tweets criticizing the TV star. "Heads up: I give no f–ks and never will. Thanks. Continue," he tweeted on Monday after pointing out that West didn't mention the line "I made that bitch famous" on the call with Swift.
"People always ask me how to be famous," he continued. "My answer is simple. Have your dad defend murder of a woman. Release sex tape. That’s it. Good luck."
But he didn't stop after mentioning Kardashian's infamous 2003 tape, and added one last thought: "The irony of one of the most untalented women in the world attacking one of the most talented."
