As you could probably imagine, Swifties everywhere feel passionately that Taylor Swift should be entitled to all of her master recordings. And while, in a perfect world, everything she’d worked so hard on would belong to her, that’s unfortunately not the case — or at least not right now. Still, tons of people have come to her defense — and not just fans! Cara Delevingne and Todrick Hall defended Taylor by writing posts on social media, while other celebrities, including Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus, Lana Del Rey, Adele, Nicki Minaj, Camila Cabello and several others showed their support by unfollowing Scooter.
For those asking, I left Scooter Braun a long time ago…I am saddened by this news, but not shocked. He is an evil person who’s only concern is his wealth and feeding his disgusting ego. I believe he is homophobic & I know from his own mouth that he is not a Swift fan.

But still, Scooter has a lot of support as well. His wife, Yael Braun, took to Instagram herself to write a scathing rebuttal in defense of her husband. And Justin Bieber, Demi Lovato, and several others took to social media as well to defend the manager.

Hey Taylor. First of all i would like to apologize for posting that hurtful instagram post, at the time i thought it was funny but looking back it was distasteful and insensitive.. I have to be honest though it was my caption and post that I screenshoted of scooter and Kanye that said “taylor swift what up” he didnt have anything to do with it and it wasnt even a part of the conversation in all actuality he was the person who told me not to joke like that.. Scooter has had your back since the days you graciously let me open up for you.! As the years have passed we haven’t crossed paths and gotten to communicate our differences, hurts or frustrations. So for you to take it to social media and get people to hate on scooter isn’t fair. What were you trying to accomplish by posting that blog? seems to me like it was to get sympathy u also knew that in posting that your fans would go and bully scooter. Anyway, One thing i know is both scooter and i love you. I feel like the only way to resolve conflict is through communication. So banter back and fourth online i dont believe solves anything. I’m sure Scooter and i would love to talk to you and resolve any conflict, pain or or any feelings that need to be addressed. Neither scooter or i have anything negative to say about you we truly want the best for you. I usually don’t rebuttal things like this but when you try and deface someone i loves character thats crossing a line..
Clearly, this isn’t as cut and dry and either parties made it out to be, and after hearing both sides, lots of people don’t know how to feel. Well, what do you think? Was it wrong for Borchetta and Braun to cut a deal? Should Swift have been granted full ownership of her master recordings? Let us know in the comments below, or tweet us @soundigest!
