Taylor Swift Gets Twitter Death Threats After 'Dissing' Ex at Grammys

Brian Anthony Hernandez

Furious One Direction fans hurled death threats at Taylor Swift on Twitter after her sassy performance of "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" at Sunday's 55th Grammy Awards. The harsh threats continued to roll in well into late Monday.

The angry fans think Swift mocked her ex-boyfriend -- 19-year-old One Direction member and British heartthrob Harry Styles -- during her Grammy set. The 23-year-old rewrote the lyrics to the song and at one point noticeably sang in a fake British accent (watch below).

"So he calls me up and says, 'I still love you'," Swift belted, singing the last four words with the accent. "And I'm like, 'I'm sorry, I’m busy opening up the Grammys.'"
