Taylor Swift dropped a new single from her upcoming album Friday and the jokes came flooding in after a screenshot that appeared to be a scene from her new music video appeared online.
Just take a look. Here we have Swift surrounded by men of varying shades. With the browner ones on the left, and the whiter ones on the right. God only knows what’s going on in this video. But look at YouTuber Toddrick Hall getting that check.
Once the photo hit social media, Black Twitter had a field day:

Some people also noted that Swift’s album is being released on the day Kanye West’s mother died. Coincidence or nah?
