We all know that 2016 has been a rough one for losing beloved performers, and now an Australian graffiti artist has paid “tribute” to Taylor Swift. Don’t panic Tay Tay isn’t dead, but according to lushsux, the singer was “murdered” (as they say in the social media sphere) during her recent feud with Kim Kardashian.
To catch you up, Kim (a.k.a. Mrs. Kanye West) lit social media on fire on Sunday night when she released video of a phone call in which Swift gave her consent to West to use her name in a song lyric.
Prior to Kardashian’s reveal, Swift repeatedly denied consultation with West took place, but Kim called her out — prompting lushsux to “pay his respects” to Swift with a mural. However, if you look closely, the artist seems to have misspelled Swift’s name.
The Daily Mail points out that the last name scrawled on the mural looks more like “Smith” than “Swift,” which could be a spur-of-the-moment typo or an attempt to avoid litigation. lushsux told Melbourne newspaper The Age that “defamation lawsuits are quite costly.”
And according to his Instagram account, he may be about to find that out for himself.
