People Are Dragging Taylor Swift Because She Thinks 2017 Was A Good Year

Diply 15 Dec 2017

Between shattering YouTube records and the triumphant release of *Reputation*, Taylor Swift has been a very busy woman this year.

But since 2017's almost come to end, T-Swizzle decided to reflect on the year in an Instagram post.

However, some people appeared to be less than amused by her words.

Yesterday, Taylor posted a photo of herself on stage at the Jingle Bell Ball in London, England.

"I love you guys so much," said Taylor in the caption, "I couldn’t have asked for a better year, all thanks to you."She also thanked her fans for the recent birthday wishes.

Some users remarked on the fact that Taylor's super rich and that it's obviously been a good year for rich people.

And like, when's the last time it wasn't?

But most of the backlash came because of all the unfortunate events that occurred in 2017.

Some argued that unlike Taylor, the United States as a whole could have definitely asked for a better year.

They brought up both heartbreaking and controversial events, including white supremacist marches, mass shootings, and the repeal of Obamacare.

Evidently, a lot of people didn't have as great a year as Taylor Swift did.

But while some rolled their eyes or claimed Taylor wasn't directly affected by these problems because of her privilege, others congratulated her on a successful year.

Those fans pointed out that Taylor was referring to her personal year.

And that despite what's happening around the world, people shouldn't be criticized for having a positive year themselves.

Which, quite frankly, seems reasonable.
