Justin Bieber mocks Taylor Swift by reenacting her post-surgery banana meltdown video, and Hailey Baldwin finds it 'funny'
Bieber took to Instagram Live on Sunday and joking re-enacted Taylor's post-surgery meltdown while gliding around his kitchen on hovershoes.
Taylor Swift's recent anesthetic episode after undergoing Lasik surgery left viewers in splits after she was seen getting mighty upset over a banana. Swift's shenanigans were broadcast by talk show host Jimmy Fallon during Taylor's Tonight Show appearance last Thursday, much to her embarrassment.
Now it seems that fellow singer-songwriter Justin Bieber doesn't want Swift to forget her loopy behavior anytime soon, as he took to Instagram Live on Sunday and joking re-enacted her post-surgery meltdown while gliding around his kitchen on hovershoes. The "Baby" hitmaker is seen in the video imitating Taylor's dazed and deeply concerned voice as he screams, "It's not the banana that I wanted!" adding, "It's not the right banana. It has no head!"
Hailey Bieber, Justin's wife, filmed the video and commented "That was so funny."
While the imitation was meant to be light-hearted and playful, some highly-sensitive fans of Taylor's immediately accused Justin of trying to stir up trouble by throwing shade at the "Love Story" hitmaker. Some fans even pointed to the recent feud between Taylor and Justin after what transpired between her and Justin's friend and manager Scooter Braun. "I mean I’m not surprised at this point but [for real] she just had surgery??? Doing this is so uncalled for," one fan commented on Twitter. "He’s literally just bullying her."
But quite a few other Swifties didn't see anything wrong with Justin's take.
"I legit don’t think they’re trying to make this a big deal, they just saw it and were laughing about it but everyone's freaking out. Like what are they supposed to do not make fun of it? When everyone else is?" another commenter responded. "It was meant to be a funny video, at least they thought it was funny."
Having said that, fans are still having fun with the original video of Taylor's post-surgery episode. What's more it was singer's mother who secretly passed the footage on to Fallon, who surprised her with the same during her Tonight Show appearance.
During the show, Taylor was visibly stunned at how Fallon had managed to obtain the hilarious candid video from her mother.
"I can't even be mad. I'm just impressed that you infiltrated my family," the singer quipped. "I don't even know how you did that! Nobody has my mom's number."
