The "Heart Attack" singer posted a message on her Instagram Story, which began, "I have dealt with bad people in this industry and Scooter is not one of them. He's a good man."
"Personally," she continued, "I'm grateful he came into my life when he did. Please stop 'dragging' people or bullying them. There's enough hate in this world as it is."
Perhaps predicting Swift's fans would not approve of her first message, she posted a second one that began, "Y'all can come after me all you want but I'm always gonna stay loyal to my team."
She then added, "I value loyalty more than most people in this world and if my name is gonna be brought into conversations I'm gonna stand up for myself and the ones on my team."
