UPDATE: Calvin Harris' tweet appears to be inauthentic after all. "I'm not in favour of photoshopping fake tweets and then running them on your news outlet daily mail etc that's really f--ked up," he tweeted


Why'd you have to make things so complicated, Calvin Harris?

The DJ and music producer may have spoken a little too soon when he spotted a discussion amongst Avril Lavigne and Taylor Swift fans. Before we get to his words, however, we should probably fill you in on what sparked the defensive tweet.

One loyal admirer of Lavigne tweeted to the singer alleging that Swift liked a Tumblr post comparing her meet and greets with the "Complicated" singer's interaction with fans backstage.

"Comparison is judging and judging a person does not define who they are," Lavigne wrote in response. "It defines who you are. We all love our fans." 

She wasn't done yet! Lavigne included a collage of photos featuring a variety of meet and greets with the caption, "So let's keep it all about the love and stay positive."  

We can all agree on that, right? Oh wait! Harris has something to say.

"[Taylor] didn't judge you. She doesn't judge anyone," the "Summer" crooner reportedly wrote on Twitter before quickly deleting the message. "She was only having fun with her fans, not trying to compare herself to you."

And while some may recognize the tweet being sent out Monday night just before midnight, we've learned Harris was across the globe where there was a significant time difference.

This isn't the first time Harris has come to his leading lady's defense on social media. Earlier this month, Zayn Malik spliced together a quote from Swift and a quote from Miley Cyrus regarding the music industry. The account attempted to call out T. Swift for her for-profit stance about streaming service while bolstering Cyrus' anti-money attitude.

Let's just say Harris didn't appreciate the subtle jab at his girlfriend.

"You've made your money? Cool…f--k the 99% of musicians who depend on these services to survive right? Yeah f--k em," Harris tweeted. "If u don't get what it means when a successful artist uses their celebrity to benefit every other musician and songwriter in the industry stay out my f--kin mentions pls."

While Harris ultimately wished the former One Direction member "best of luck," it's clear Swift's knight in shining armor can't help but step in. Whether his timing is right or not, we'll let you decide!
