Ciara clapped back at a man in the comments on Instagram who criticized her for officiating a wedding between two men in Taylor Swift’s ‘You Need To Calm Down’ music video.
Someone in the comments on one of Ciara‘s Instagram posts took it upon himself to chastise the singer for appearing in Taylor Swift‘s new music video, in which she officiates a wedding between two men. Ciara shared the clip from “You Need To Calm Down” on Instagram, which shows her jumping up and down and cheering after pronouncing Jesse Tyler Ferguson and his husband Justin Mikita husband and husband.
The commenter, said, “Ciara. you shouldn’t be doing this. We respect u too much, Being at a gay wedding is one thing and joining them together is even more a greater sin. We love you but this is wrong.” She wrote in response to his comment, “Firstly, Christians don’t judge. Secondly #YouNeedToCalmDown.”
“You Need To Calm Down” is about LGBTQ acceptance and slamming homophobes. The music video is absolutely star-studded, featuring a plethora of queer celebrities: Ellen DeGeneres, the Queer Eye cast, RuPaul, Billy Porter, Laverne Cox, Hayley Kiyoko, Adam Lambert, Adam Rippon, and so many more.
Taylor faced her own criticism before the music video dropped. There was a rumor going around that she and Katy were going to kiss in it, so she took to Tumblr to set the record straight: “Guys. That is ABSOLUTELY false,” she wrote. “To be an ally is to understand the difference between advocating and baiting. Anyone trying to twist this positivity into something it isn’t needs to clam down. It costs zero dollars to not step on our gowns.”
Oh, and did we mwnetion that Katy Perry was there. Looks like the cold war is finally over. Katy appeared near the end of the video at a dance party, where she was wearing her infamous hamburger dress from the 2019 Met Gala.
