The singer accepted her award for Best Female Video for the song “I Knew You Were Trouble,” and after thanking fans for the award, she also called out One Direction singer Harry Styles saying, "I also want to thank the person who inspired this song, who knows exactly who he is.”
Of course, MTV cameras cut straight to Harry Styles, who was sitting with his One Direction buddies, looking guilty, a bit amused, and of course surprised by Taylor Swift calling him out on live TV.
Taylor’s fans immediately began tweeting love for the singer, while One Directioners shared their disgust by her words.
Some loved it, others hated it, but everyone’s jaw dropped on the floor when Swift made her sassy speech.
Taylor Swift and Harry Styles dated briefly before ending their relationship in a messy break up, which, of course, Swift wrote about in songs. Meanwhile, Styles’ has stayed mostly quiet on the relationship.
