Twitter has rushed to singer Taylor Swift's defense after an odd social media share over her reproductive egg-count recently sparked anger from fans.
It all started when a far-right Canadian Youtuber known for “his promotion of scientific racism and eugenics," according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, wrote, “I can’t believe Taylor Swift is about to turn 30 — she still looks so young."
But that isn't all he said about the 29-year-old star. He continued, "It’s strange to think that 90% of her eggs are already gone — 97% by the time she turns 40 — so I hope she thinks about having kids before it’s too late! She’d be a fun mom," reported InStyle.
Understandably, the Twitter factions and fans of the You Need To Calm Down hit-maker rioted in the comments. "Congratulations, this is the worst thing I've ever seen," one user replied furiously.

Others pointed out that the man, 53-year-old Stefan Molyneux, has a high percentage of hair reduction. "It’s strange to think that 97% of his hair is already gone - he only had 90% when he turned 50- so I hope he thinks about having a hair transplant before it’s too late," a Twitter user mused.

It’d be nice to see him with some hair

The tweets coming to Swift's defense just kept rolling in. One user on the social media platform countered, "<looks at hugely successful creative artist and businesswoman> “Such a shame this barely sentient walking womb hasn’t whelped offspring, at age 30 she’s over twice the nubile age.”

"Just incredible to me how naïve I was 30 seconds ago when I thought this was the creepiest thing I'd see about eggs today," another wrote.
Seems like the egg count joke about Swift didn't impress many on Twitter.
