>>420 He's taken quite a few steps back from his original tweet, making sure not to implicate Tay Tay.
I realise he has to be diplomatic for the sake of his films' promotion but his excuse that the creatives are entirely responsible for plagiarising isn't really valid. While the 'original' idea and content is formulated by the ad agency, TS and her team approved it. I don't believe TS had never seen the original viral video but I'll give her the shady benefit of the doubt that she may not have known they were copying without permission.
I'd even wager that the original video was included in style notes for the shoot.
