After confirming that Swift did co-write the track, Harris accused his ex’s team of trying to make him look bad. He then tweeted: “I figure if you're happy in your new relationship you should focus on that instead of trying to tear your ex bf down for something to do. I know you're off tour and you need someone new to try and bury like Katy ETC but I'm not that guy, sorry. I won't allow it.”
