The “Shake it Off” singer called the drama, “a mass public shaming." She said, "Millions of people saying you are quote-unquote canceled, is a very isolating experience. I don’t think there are that many people who can actually understand what it’s like to have millions of people hate you very loudly.”

Taylor confessed that she realized she needed to restructure her life at that point. “I knew immediately I needed to make music about it because I knew it was the only way I could survive it," she explained. "It was the only way I could preserve my mental health and also tell the story of what it’s like to go through something so humiliating.”
