If you’re confused by the term “Taylor Swift‘s Banana Video,” it’s okay. Recently, she was a guest on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Fallon surprised Swift with an embarrassingly hilarious video that was submitted to the show by her mom: Swift attempting to eat a banana after having eye surgery. She was on a lot of medication and even began to cry over the banana!
Swift is wearing a huge pair of eye goggles and tries to pick out the right banana to eat. She starts crying when she grabs the “wrong” banana and then tries to eat it anyway in bed.
Apparently, Swift didn’t know her mom gave this video to Fallo. Her reaction to the video made it that much better: “Oh my god, that’s on television, wait. [My mom] was kind enough to drive me there but cruel enough to film it and give it to you? I had these goggles on, which were really high-fashion, but then they had to tape it to my head. But I was crying, I think over a banana. Oh my god.”
It’s clear that Justin Bieber saw the clip and found it amusing as well. He recreates the scene while being live on his wife, Hailey Bieber’s, Instagram. In the snippet, Justin can be heard screaming “It’s not the banana that I wanted, it’s not the right banana, it has no head,” while Hailey adds, “That was so funny.”
It seems like Bieber was trying to be funny and playful, but Swifties disagree. Fans believe that Biber was mocking Swift accuse him of being a “bully,” “hypocrite,” and even a “rat.”
He IS a jerk and what he did is bullying… Honestly I don't get how he has any fans

@justinbieber is one of the biggest hypocrite of all time. He always says things like "Just love" and then he mocks Taylor out of nowhere. So annoying. He's really obsessed with Taylor. @scooterbraun talk to your client pls. Tell him to stop mocking people.

don’t mock her, don’t quote her, don’t mention her name, don’t look at her, don’t breathe in her direction.

It’s still not clear what Bieber’s true intentions were. Are Swifties overreacting to a harmless joke or is Bieber overstepping when he shouldn’t?
