Nothing against the girl, but Taylor Swift gets on my last nerve. So when I heard that Eminem's 16-year-old daughter Hailie Scott Mathers was talking smack about the singer on Twitter for hooking up with that kid from One Direction, I was like: Awww yeah! 'Bout time somebody with street cred called out Taylor Pretty Pretty Princess Swift for being such a self-important snore. But then I found out what Mathers was actually saying about Swift, and I was like: Ohhh, that ain't cool.
Here's what Mathers tweeted about Swift and the kid from One Direction ("HARRY STYLES, Mom!" says my 11-year-old daughter):
"Dear @taylorswift13, please stop whoring around with every guy you see. We all know you're only doing it so you can make another album."
Damn, why'd you have to go there, Hailie?
"Whoring" around?! I can't really fault the girl for not knowing better, considering she's 16 years old and I'm fairly certain (as Eminem's daughter) she grew up hearing the word "whore" with some regularity, but Mathers needs to learn that girls don't call girls whores. It's like an unspoken pact kind of thing, one all women should be in on it even if they're not (yet). There are too many men out there who are more than willing to whip out that most degrading of insults -- the last thing we need is slut-shaming from our sisters-in-arms. Solidarity, ladies!!
Although it seems Mathers might have learned her lesson already. After an army of angry Taylor & Harry 4EVER fans tweeted an army of angry responses, Mathers issued the followoing Twitter apology:
"Wow. I didnt mean for people to react to my tweet in the way that they have it was just a bit of fun! Sorry @taylorswift13 for my immaturity."
"I believe I'm entitled to my own opinion, but that got out of control. I don't understand why there are 'news' articles written about it!"
Just for the record, Taylor Swift still gets on my last nerve. But I still wouldn't call her a whore.
Do you think it was okay for Hailie Mathers to call Taylor Swift a whore?

I don't think it's appropriate to say, but Taylor has been going through guys very quickly these days.
