Todrick Hall gives an interview about the Taylor Swift backlash

Todrick Hall gave a long interview to Yahoo! about Taylor Swift and some of the things he's been seeing online.

Todrick on the idea that Taylor's video was ripping off Beyoncé:
I’m a humongous Beyoncé fan. I’ve worked with Beyoncé. I’ve choreographed for Beyoncé. And I would never intentionally be a part of art that I felt was ripping off my favorite artist of all time. But I felt like these were two completely different lanes

On refusing to hate white people and the cookout:
So it’s just really difficult for me to understand why it is an issue for people, a legitimate issue, that I have white friends, and that Taylor Swift happens to be one of my many white friends.

Apparently here’s a thing called the “cookout,” which is like your invitation to be a part of the black community. Some people have like deemed themselves the Woke Police, and they decide to strip you online of your invitation to attend the “cookout.” It boggles my mind that people are deciding whether or not I’m down enough, black enough, or woke enough to be “invited.” If I have to hate people and judge people based on their race, sexual orientation, or religion, then sorry, but I’d rather order pizza.
