Talking about safe spaces on the internet, TikTok is probably where everyone would go! Here, no idea is an idea, no script is the best script, and no talent is probably your biggest talent! No celebrity is too alien or too old to join, the platform is open for all. However, in the last few hours, we learned that there’s one exception: John Mayer!
John Mayer learned the hard way that TikTok is probably not safe for him!
On March 1st, the musician made his debut on the video-making platform, believing that it would be a perfect place to promote his music and bizarre antics (and rightly so, because the platform was originally created for the same purpose). But little did he know that Taylor Swift fans had their keyboards and comments ready to give him the most unprecedented welcome he never would have imagined!

Mayer appeared to be an absolute boomer in his first TikTok video, where he was seen struggling with the application. “Can someone tell me how to flip the camera?” he asked his followers before finally being able to fix it. The comments on his video were mostly from outrageous Swifties, rebuking and writing lyrics from Taylor Swift’s 2010 Speak Now track “Dear John,” which was believed to be written about him.
Mayer and Swift were rumored to have briefly dated in 2009, and obviously, it didn’t end well. Swift’s song “Dear John” details a devastating experience of a relationship with an emotionally manipulative man named John. “John don’t you think 19 was too young?” wrote a fan on his video, referencing the song.
“You’re not safe here John,” replied another fan. “We will never forget what you did to our girl Taylor,” wrote another.
By now, we all know that no fandom is as vicious, dedicated, and sometimes toxic as Taylor Swift’s. Seriously, these people can even kill for their idol! Once you unleash the unforgiving rage of Taylor Swift fans, only God can save your from their wrath.
Here’s how Swifties roasted the hell outta John Mayer on his TikTok debut:

After getting absolutely thrashed by the Swifties, Mayer uploaded another video of himself whilst reading the comments of those criticizing him alongside a caption, “POV: You’re berating me and I am hearing you out.”

The singer then uploaded a final video in what seems to be another response to the angered Taylor Swift fans, in which he is playing and singing a song “That was a weird day. That was a real weird day.” The caption of the video reads, “Good night new friends! More fun tomorrow.”
Umm… friends? We really doubt that!
The latest incident further proves that Swifties can go absolutely nuts when it comes to defending their favorite girl. Mayer, on the other hand, has had a really tumultuous history with all the popular women he has ever dated. People often slut-shame Taylor for exploring and switching her love affairs, but nobody bats an eyelid when it comes to her exes, who probably dated more women than Taylor dated men.
Hypocrisy at its finest!
After all this, you had better stick with the gram, Dear John. TikTok isn’t a safe place for you!
