Taylor Swift may have a long list of famous exes at this point 鈥 Joe Jonas, Jake Gyllenhaal, Calvin Harris and Tom Hiddleston, just to name a few 鈥 but lately, some of her former flames have been popping up for one particular reason: to throw shade at Taylor. Ouch. Just a week after Harry Styles鈥 post was declared the most memorable Twitter shade of 2016, John Mayer decided to get a little nasty just in time for Swift鈥檚 birthday.

Taylor Swift and John Mayer

While Taylor鈥檚 famous #girlsquad was busy sending her adoring messages for her 27th birthday, John wasn鈥檛 really feeling the love鈥 at all. Sending out a post via Twitter, John may have deleted the tweet right after, but as we well know, screenshots live on forever.

鈥淭uesday, December 13 may be the lamest day of the year, conceptually.鈥 Oof. The tweet quickly disappeared and John attempted to explain that it was not in fact about Taylor, saying, 鈥淣OPE. No. Nuh-uh. People I am 39. I am deleting those tweets. Come right at me for doing so. Absolutely no shade.鈥 He then deleted THAT tweet. Yeesh.

First, it certainly seems like John was totally throwing shade at Taylor. Secondly, perhaps Mayer should give his tweets a second thought before hitting send so that he doesn鈥檛 have to go on a deleting spree right afterwards. Just sayin鈥.

Do you think John Mayer was throwing shade at Taylor Swift with his tweet? Tweet us @BritandCo!
