The internet is already unhinging its jaw on Taylor Swift‘s new music video — and the damn thing hasn’t even come out yet!
On Friday, the pop star shared a clip for her Look What You Made Me Do video, teasing quick shots that showcase her new good-girl-gone-snake rebranding.
Naturally, Twitter is already picking apart the visuals, and one still in particular has triggered cries of appropriation!
The shot of Tay dressed in a black leotard flanked by dancers sparked instant comparisons to Beyoncé‘s Formation video — and people are not here for the pop star’s discount Lemonade.
Critics called out Swift for ripping off the Southern Gothic visuals Bey used in her visual album — which, for the record has been accused of being lifted from another artist — and soon, the internet was flooded with Beyoncé lyrics altered to fit Taylor’s white girl-ness.
Some users, however, had even more noteworthy takeaway from the visual:
“Ok, what’s the theme for this video?”
Taylor Swift: “…segregation.”
“Excuse me, what?”
