Antoni Porowski Comes to Taylor Swift's Defense Amid 'The Tortured Poets Department' Criticism

The Grammy winner did face backlash in the wake of 'TTPD' release, one in particular was due to her mentioning Charlie Puth on the title track despite her BFF Selena Gomez's messy relationship with him.

AceShowbiz - Antoni Porowski wasn't having it why people don't like Taylor Swift's newly-released album, "The Tortured Poets Department". The "Queer Eye" star came to the Grammy winner's defense after a news outlet criticized the set.

On Friday, April 19, The New York Times offered its opinion on the piece via Instagram. One part of the caption read, "What @taylorswift reveals on her sprawling and often self-indulgent 11th LP, 'The Tortured Poets Department,' is that this stretch of productivity and commercial success was also a tumultuous time for her, emotionally."

"Over 16 songs (and a second LP), the pop superstar litigates her recent romances," it added. "But the theme, and familiar sonic backdrops, generate diminishing returns, writes Lindsay Zoladz in her review."

The post has caught Antoni's attention. In the comment section, the Canadian TV personality and cook replied, "Oh no what u doing."

Taylor did face backlash in the wake of "TTPD" release. She was slammed by fans of her BFF Selena Gomez for mentioning Charlie Puth on the title track despite Selena's messy relationship with him.

Meanwhile, on "I Hate It Here", Taylor sings about how she and her friends are discontent with living in this current era and wanting to live back in the 1830s. "My friends used to play a game where/ We would pick a decade/ We wished we could live in instead of this/ I'd say the 1830s but without all the racists/ And getting married off for the highest bid," she sings.

Social media users were quick to point out that slavery was still legalized in America in the 1830s. Some critics say that the lyrics minimize the struggles of the time, even with the "without all the racists" caveat.

Other listeners pointed out that the 1830s were best known, historically, for the Indian Removal Act and Trail of Tears, in which around 60,000 Native Americans were forcibly displaced from their homes, with many dying in the process. In Europe, it was also the time of a cholera pandemic that claimed tens of thousands more lives.
