Was Blake Lively “Throwing Shade” at Taylor Swift?

Blake Lively recently posted this photo on Instagram, which gathered much attention from Taylor Swift fans because of the “Bad Blood” reference:

Tay-Tay’s “Bad Blood” music video featured her army of celebrity and model friends, prompting Blake to compare the video to her star-studded photo shoot with singer John Legend. The said pictorial featured Blake and John together with celebrities Naomi Watts, Julianne Moore, Eva Longoria, and even model Karlie Kloss (who was also in Taylor’s “Bad Blood” music video), among others.

However, some fans thought that Blake was poking fun at Tay-Tay’s girl squad video. As a response, Blake posted a photo of her relatives with Taylor.

Blake’s caption further clarified that she never intended any bad blood toward the pop singer:

“Umm whoever thought I was throwin shade clearly doesn’t know I have a “Taylor Swift Please Be My Wife Voo Doo Doll” #obsessed Look how rad she is here making my niece Heather feel like a rock star. Love my Canadian family almost as much as I love Taylor Lively. I mean Swift. Ok, FIIINE we can hyphenate our last names. Xo Blake Swift-Lively 4eva”
