Tbf, he does make a VERY good point.

Taylor Swift's epic return is nothing short of iconic. She dropped 'Look What You Made Me Do' straight outta nowhere, romped it up to the number one spot on the Vodafone Big Top 40 and released the most fierce, sassiest music video known to man.

But her latest has garnered some negative reactions from several of her fans, and the 'LWYMMD' video director is NOT here for it.

Following comments that her return was insincere, Joseph Kahn - who has collaborated with Tay on multiple occasions, on the videos for 'Bad Blood', 'Blank Space' and 'Wildest Dreams' - defended the apparent sexism in this case.

On Twitter, Joseph called out the double standards, saying "If I plan something as a man I'm a "genius."

If Taylor as a woman plans something she is "manipulative"," continued Joseph. Taylor's 85.5 million followers then sided with the director, defending her.

This comes after Joseph was accused of copying Beyoncé's work in the video for 'Look What You Made Me Do', after many similarities between that and the video for 'Lemonade' were made.

See for yourself - was Taylor being "manipulative" in the video for 'LWYMMD'?
