This morning Calvin Harris fired off a number of angry tweets in the wake of Taylor Swift’s revelation that she’d written his hit song, This Is What You Came For. First congratulating his ex for her lyrical writing ability, he then claimed he’d written the music and arranged the track, and that she was trying to ‘tear [him] down for something to do’. And this isn’t the first time Calvin has stirred up controversy on Twitter.

Here’s a list of the times the 32-year-old DJ has used Twitter to throw shade at other artists.

1. Calvin vs. Rita Ora

Calvin fell into hot water in 2014 after tweeting, ‘To address speculation – myself and Rita ended our relationship some time ago. She is a beautiful, talented woman & I wish her all the best.’


To an outsider, this appears to be a civilised way to publicly address a break-up; however, that’s probably only the case if you’ve actually broken up with the person.

Yup, Rita found out that she and Calvin were over at the same time as his Twitter followers. Ouch.
