Katy Perry's boyfriend inspires fundraising account for Taylor Swift's bum after body shaming her

2014-11-13 10:40

Los Angeles - Katy Perry's boyfriend, Diplo, has inspired a fundraising account for Taylor Swift's bottom.

The 36-year-old DJ appeared to start an online feud with the Shake It Off singer, 24, after he posted several demeaning and body shaming tweets aimed at her.

On Wednesday under the username BABY DADDY, Diplo wrote: "Someone should make a kickstarter to get taylor swift a booty (sic)"

He later added: "body shaming myself right now (sic)

"are taylor swift fans called the swift boat veterans? (sic)"

Diplo then tweeted a link to a Fundly account - started by a fan called Eric Spivak - which has called itself 'Get Taylor Swift A Booty'.

The description of the campaign claims to be supporting the young singer, although it is deeply sarcastic.

It said: "Taylor Swift Still Needs Your Help! Any true supporter of TSWIFT would definitely not pass up this opportunity to improve her posterior! Spread The Word If You Believe In Magic! (sic)"

At the time of writing, the Fundly account has raised $45 out of its goal of $3 500, a total of 17 supporters have donated to the cause.

Diplo's rumoured girlfriend Katy Perry has previously fought with Taylor on Twitter, after she was accused of stealing a dancer from Taylor's music tour.

In September, the 30-year-old Roar singer tweeted: "Watch out for the Regina George in sheep's clothing... (sic)"
