Taylor Swift's 'LWYMMD' Video Director Says She's Battling Double Standards as a Woman

Taylor Swift‘s “Look What You Made Me Do” music video director Joseph Kahn is speaking out about the gender double standards she faces in the industry.

“If I plan something as a man I’m a ‘genius,’” he tweeted on Wednesday (Aug. 30). “If Taylor as a woman plans something she is ‘manipulative.’”

“Double standards,” he added in her defense. “This is wrong.”

Following his tweet, Joseph retweeted a Guardian article stating that Taylor is battling misogyny.

The record-breaking “LWYMD” video has received tons of attention for its references to Taylor‘s career, as well as possible nods to Calvin Harris, Tom Hiddleston, Katy Perry, Kanye West, and Kim Kardashian. Joseph recently responded to video’s Beyonce comparisons as well.

Joseph has also directed Taylor‘s music videos for “Blank Space,” ”Bad Blood,” and “Wildest Dreams.”
