Taylor Swift’s rogue fans have targeted Dua Lipa with death threats. The torrent of abuse was brought up by Dua Lipa during an interview Rolling Stone. She talked about a previous interview in which she had to pick between Taylor Swift and her nemesis, Kanye West. Lipa chose West, telling Rolling Stone that “Taylor is amazing, but I'm such a hip-hop fan that I would probably choose Kanye over anyone”. The result was an onslaught of abuse from Swift’s online fanbase. “They were sending me snake emojis for, like, three days straight” Lipa explained. She also detailed death threats: “They're like, 'I hope you die.' I'm like, 'Yo! I literally didn't say anything’”.
