Amy Schumer’s Calvin Harris Tweet Perfectly Highlights How Out Of Hand The Hiddleswift Obsession Has Gotten
The romantic getaway in Rome! Kissing pictures on the beach! The "I <3 T.S." tank top! Ever since news broke that Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston are dating, it's been all anyone can talk about. And in many ways, the couple is seemingly playing into the hype with all of the aforementioned tactics. Adding some extra drama, Calvin Harris, aka Swift's most recent ex, is seemingly not OK with the new relationship. There are reports that Harris is releasing a song about Swift allegedly cheating on him — think an EDM version of Lemonade. (Bustle has reached out to reps for Harris and Swift about the claims, but has not yet heard back.) But before you roll your eyes at all of this, allow Amy Schumer to provide some comedic relief. Schumer's latest tweet about Hiddleswift and Harris sums up the absurdity perfectly.
On Thursday, Mashable tweeted an article and wrote, "Calvin Harris will release a song about Taylor Swift and infidelity on Friday." In response, Schumer not so bluntly wrote, "well what the f*ck are we supposed to do till then?" In posting that sarcastic message, she highlights how overhyped this love triangle has become. It's as if the world stops and nothing else matters until Friday when Harris' song is potentially released and the drama surrounding Hiddleswift escalates.
I've always appreciated Schumer's honesty, but even more so now. The way people are reacting to Swift and Hiddleston's relationship, you'd think they were actually part of the relationship themselves. Yet their romance literally has no direct impact on any of our lives. Meanwhile, all the Harris-related drama is rather petty. (For reference, check out this handy chart contrasting Harris and Swift's post-breakup behavior.) I'm guilty of feeding into the hype too, but Schumer's tweet certainly makes me take a step back and really think about why people (myself included) care so much about their relationship.
Schumer's post is hands-down the best response to this whole debacle. The runner-up, of course, is Ryan Reynolds' silent expression of confusion, sadness, and uncertainty from Swift's 4th of July party. In case you missed it, I'm referring to the photo below where he gazes into the distance, as Swift and Hiddleston kiss beside him.
See what I mean? Reynolds' eyes speak for him. And if I'm interpreting that look correctly, they're saying, "When will this madness end?" As much as his expression makes me chuckle, it's no match for Schumer's signature sass. She totally wins.
