Author Anne Lamott learned not to mess with Swifties over the weekend after an offhand comment on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, sparked intense criticism online.

As the backlash mounted overnight and into Saturday morning, Lamott deleted the original post and even issued an apology writing, “Very sorry for snarky Taylor Swift comment. I probably got more angry response to this than for anything I’ve tweeted in the ten years I’ve been here,” adding, “Note to self: try to do better.”
