He clarified his reputation statement and said, "I started thinking to myself, there’s probably a lot of people who would be like, ‘I want nothing to do with that guy.’” John got a "bad reputation" after his brief relationship with Taylor. The heat he received increased when he began dating Katy Perry, whom Taylor has a never-ending feud with.
