While we may never know whether Taylor Swift really said "shut the f--k up" at the MTV Video Music Awards during ex Harry Styles' appearance, there's still no shortage of reaction from the members of One Direction

The blond beauty took the stage Sunday at Brooklyn's Barclays Center to accept the award for Best Female Video for "I Knew You Were Trouble," giving a not-so-subtle shout-out to "who I wrote this song about 'cause you know who you are and now I have this award."

The camera then cut to Styles, who smirked as he chewed his gum in the audience.

Of course, media outlets asked the 1D boybanders for their reaction to the Taylor Swift incident at the NYC premiere for This Is Us Monday night.

And lucky for us, their answers are almost as entertaining as Miley Cyrus' performance. 

"When she said those things about Niall, we were very, very pissed off," Liam Payne joked to Vulture.

Natch, Niall Horan couldn't help but chime in, "I was so upset that she would go writing songs about me after all we've been through," he added.

"Hashtag get over it," Payne playfully quipped in reply.

Despite the boys' silly comebacks, Liam did admit that he found the "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" singer's stint a little unnecessary.

"I just thought it was a bit not needed," he told Us Weekly. "I mean, you just won an award, it's like, concentrate on yourself!"

Fortunately, Styles seemed entirely unfazed by the alleged diss, taking Taylor's comments in stride.

"It's all right, she likes a joke," he told Extra when asked about Swift's acceptance speech. "I like a joke as much as the next guy, so it's all good."

Despite the back and forth between the twosome, the former couple was snapped posing for a pic with a group of pals at an MTV VMA afterparty just hours after Taylor seemingly threw some shade at Harry.

Hmmm. Perhaps these two are on better terms than we thought?

Maybe we should just #getoverit.
