Taylor Swift has some of the most loyal fans, and they will protect her at all costs.
Swifties have come across an old video of Taylor on ‘The Ellen Show’ from 2013. The video shows Ellen DeGeneres asking the “Shake It Off” singer some very personal questions about her romantic life.
The interview between Ellen and Taylor resurfaced on TikTok, and now Swifties are outraged after seeing just how uncomfortable Taylor was made to feel.
During the interview, the talk-show host can be seen badgering the singer about rumors that she and Zac Efron were dating. At one point even calls him her “boyfriend”, to which Taylor continuously attempts to shut the rumors down.
Mind you, Taylor and Zak never dated.
See The Original Video.
Taylor is no stranger to intrusive and sexist comments made about her past dating life.
It seems now more than ever; fans want get revenge on behalf of their favorite celebrity and call out unacceptable behavior no matter how long ago the behavior took place.
Taylor does her best to shut down Ellen’s continued badgering, and at one point she even said, “I haven’t talked to him in a while, ‘cause we didn’t date.”
A relentless Ellen replies, “Yes you did! Why do you deny it?”
To which Tay shot back, “’Cause we didn’t!”

At one point, Ellen hands Taylor a bell and asks her to ring it if she did, in fact, date any of the men that appear on the screen behind them.
She eventually had enough and appeared as though she was on the verge of tears.
Taylor plead with Ellen to ‘stop it.’
“Do you know how mad this makes me feel? Stop it, stop it, STOP,” she said.
The interview has gone viral all thanks to TikToker Nya Johnson, who is known for her series “Someone Who Deserves An Apology”, to which she shed light on just how brutal this interview was for Taylor.

She captioned the video, “Do u think Ellen thrives off of making guest uncomfortable?”
Many fans got to talking in the comments section of the TikTok. One fan wrote, “You can tell they didn’t have that in preinterview. Poor taylor :/”
Another commented, “Why do they always do this to women. Like our on accomplishments are whom we’ve dated. It’s so sad.”
In 2020, Ellen was accused of facilitating a toxic work environment on the set of her show. She has since announced that she will be ending her show in 2022 after season 19 wraps.
