John Mayer asks Taylor Swift fan 'do you really hope that I die?' after hate message
John Mayer does exude a calm vibe and he dealt with a rather disturbing message he received on Instagram with the same coolness. Taylor Swift's exes are shaking in their boots, at least that is what Swifties have assumed as she re-recorded and re-released her fourth studio album 'Red', which initially dropped in 2012, on November 12. It was a fan-favorite then and gauging by social media reactions, Swift continues to reign supreme by putting out the album yet again. Songs like 'All Too Well' and 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together' hint at her romance with Jake Gyllenhaal that didn't last beyond three months. Gyllenhall became meme material post the re-release and Swifties' next target seems to be John Mayer who responded to a fan who hoped he dies.
For the uninitiated, Swift is re-recording and re-releasing all of her music because every album she recorded before 2019 belongs to Scooter Braun. She had signed a deal with Big Machine Records in 2005 where she agreed to surrender the rights to the masters of her first six albums to the label. When Taylor left the label in 2018, she offered to buy back her music from the label and Braun prohibited her to do so. Swift said she was prohibited from performing her songs on television as that would mean re-recording them which she wasn't allowed to do before 2021.

John Mayer and Taylor Swift dated for a couple of months between 2009 and 2010 when she was 19 and he was 32. Swift's third studio album 'Speak Now' features a song titled 'Dear John' the lyrics for which hint at her relationship with the 'Wildfire' singer. Like Gyllenhaal, Mayer too is being mocked on social media by Swifties. "John Mayer better prepare himself cause he is still a douche today," a fan wrote about him. "I like him when he plays blues guitar and keeps his mouth shut. I’m sure everyone prefers him that way. Anyway, just a reminder to never date John Mayer," tweeted another.
One of Swift's fans took it a step further and sent Mayer a direct message on Instagram, to which he chose to reply much to the surprise of the sender who ruled out the possibility that he'd ever read it. The fan turns out to be TikToker - @hoeforlouaylor - who sent Mayer a hate text to which he responded. She then shared the note on her account which was viewed some 11,000 times before she made it private.

"F**k yourself you ugly b*tch I hope you choke on something," she wrote to Mayer. She signed off with a heart emoji and sent a follow up DM which read, "answer me you b*tch." Much to her surprise, Mayer did respond. "I've been getting so many messages like these the past couple days," he allegedly claimed. "I'm not upset, I just tend to have a curious mind and feel compelled to ask. Do you really hope that I die?" The note's authenticity is not verified by us.
Mayer further told hoeforlouaylor that he picked her message randomly and he wouldn't mind it if she were to screenshot the message and share it over social media. The TikToker then posted another video showing the voice note she sent Mayer, apologizing for the previous messages. "My friend literally dared me to do that," she's heard saying in the recording.
"She's a Taylor fan and so am I. It was a dare. I'm sorry. I did not expect you to see," she wrote. She revealed the real reason for sending the apology in the overlay on this video which read, "wasn't trying to get sued." Mayer assured her it was fine before asking, "so it's a fun thing people are doing without taking into account that I might see it and be affected by it?" The TikToker replied no one was expecting him to open these messages. "It's 100 percent okay. Go forth and live happy and healthy!" he wrote in his final message to her.
