Twitter Trolls Jake Gyllenhaal & Call It ‘Redemption’ As Red (Taylor’s Version) Releases

Taylor Swift had previously indicated that Red (Taylor’s Version) will be released on November 19, but it will be released a week earlier; causing Swifties to erupt with delight on the Internet.

The singer’s former partner Jake Gyllenhaal has been the subject of rumours that the re-recorded version of the album is about him. The fans went crazy because they thought a few songs would make fun of the Hollywood star.

Despite the fact that the 31-year-old singer has been chastised for composing sad and heartbreaking songs about her ex-boyfriends; she continued to express her thoughts on the re-recorded version. In 2010, the ‘Blank Space’ singer dated Gyllenhaal for a short time.

Swift also released a song called ‘All Too Well’ in 2012, which Swifties believe is about Gyllenhaal. “And I, left my scarf there at your sister’s house/ And you’ve still got it in your drawer even now,” Swift sang in the song. As the release of Red (Taylor’s Version) approached social media users mercilessly mocked Gyllenhaal.

Taylor Swift said on Instagram that she will release a short film for the song, All Too Well; which will reportedly shed light on her connection with the ‘Zodiac’ star. I Bet You Think About Me, a track on the album, also appears to be a hit at the actor.

Swift’s earlier chart-topping singles from the original Red, like ‘We Are Never Getting Back Together’ and ‘I Knew You Were Trouble,’ are still seen as a dig at Gyllenhaal. The singer stated a few months ago on Twitter that the re-recorded version of the album would have 30 tracks; instead of the original’s 16.

Swifties flocked to Twitter to troll Gyllenhaal as the new album was being streamed. “Jake Gyllenhaal is my favorite actor but tonight and these next few days he is NOT!!!!! NO MORE JAKE GYLLENHAAL!!!”, said one fan as another chimed in, “This is for redemption against jake gyllenhaal non showering stinky a**.” One user tweeted, “Jake Gyllenhaal ahould be scared for his life rn.”
