It didn‘t take long for the internet to start buzzing after Olivia Wilde shared a photo on social media of two celebrities, Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce.
Critics swiftly took to the comments, questioning the director‘s judgment in posting a seemingly innocent photo of the two performers. In Wilde‘s post, she noted the "surreal-ness" of the pair being together. To some, this was seen as an endorsement of Swift‘s new single, which features Kelce.
The discontent came in from many angles, with some drawing attention to the fact that Swift has previously been accused of appropriating Black culture. Others noted that a professional athlete such as Kelce should have a higher moral standard than to be involved with someone like Swift.
No matter what the reaction was, it triggered a lively debate online with people on both sides of the issue. Some simply annoyed at what they saw as Wilde‘s tone-deafness on the issue, while others thought that she was just trying to spread some positivity and joy in the midst of a difficult year.
Regardless, the director has since taken down the photo and has yet to comment on the matter. Until then, it‘s likely that the discussion will continue.
