Swift has denied she gave the "Power" rapper permission. 

Taking to Twitter Monday, video director Jopseph Kahn, who helmed the music videos for “Blank Space” and “Wildiest Dreams,” actually compares Swift to O.J. Simpson’s slain ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson.

 

It didn't take long for Kahn to be lit up on Twitter.

"Is this a joke? This is disgusting," wrote one person.

“Nicole Simpson lost her life. Taylor is having a bad day cause she lied and got caught. Boo hoo,” wrote another.

Another wrote: “How does the murder of nicole brown compare in ANY way to Kim defending her husband by telling the truth about a fraud & a liar? “

Social media has been in overdrive since the bombshell secret recording leaked by Kim Kardashian, showing her husband, Kanye West, asking Swift if she approved of the lyrics to his song “Famous.”

In the Snapchat video Kardashian post, record producer Rick Rubin was next to her husband when he told Swift over the phone: "To all my Southside n***** that know me best, I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex."

Swift said: "I know, I mean it's like a compliment, kind of."

The line that appears on the final version of the song is “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Why? I made that bitch famous.”

The “Bad Blood” singer had previously denounced the lyrics as “offensive and derogatory.” She still insists she was never told the complete lyrics that featured “bitch” at the end.

"Where in the video of Kanye telling me he was going to call me 'that bitch' in his song? It doesn't exist because it never happened,” she wrote on Instagram early Monday morning.

The “I Knew You Were Trouble” singer’s persona is also coming under intense scrutiny on social media.

“Taylor is so good at playing a victim,” tweeted on person.

“The beginning of the end of #taylorswift's career,” wrote another.
