Taylor Swift鈥檚 breakup from Calvin Harris has been playing out over social media 鈥 we鈥檙e talkin鈥 unfollowing, deleting pics, refollowing and sizzling shirtless selfies聽鈥 as both try to ride the continued waves as well as move on (particularly Taylor, who鈥檚 been enjoying very public dates with her new bae, Tom Hiddleston). That all changed when聽Calvin decided to do more than just post pics. Speaking out by responding directly to Tay鈥檚 fans, he claimed, among other things, that she not only 鈥渃ontrolled the media鈥 around their split, but that now he鈥檚 鈥渇ree.鈥 Yowza!

Both Calvin and Taylor鈥檚 fans alike have been sending him messages regarding the recent breakup, but for the first time, Calvin waded into his mentions to reply to a few (although the responses have now been deleted). When one person pointed out that peeps might show him a bit more sympathy if he had spoken out, he decided to defend himself by explaining that 鈥淸Taylor] controlled the media and this situation, I had no idea what was going on. So that kind of makes it a lot worse from my perspective.鈥 Ouch.

When another person claimed that Calvin is merely 鈥渏ealous of Taylor now because she鈥檚 moved on and found a new boyfriend鈥︹ the newly single DJ responded with, 鈥渘ot jealous sir, FREE.鈥 Oof.

Although it sounds like there are still a few post-relationship rough patches to get past, when asked, 鈥溾hy hate Taylor?鈥 Calvin answered with a definitive, 鈥淚 don鈥檛 at all.鈥

Here鈥檚 to hoping Calvin finds someone new to make him as happy as Taylor seems with Tom.
