John Mayer, 43, tells ex Taylor Swift's fans 'I'm hearing you out' after they 'berate' him as 'old man' on TikTok

JOHN Mayer told his ex Taylor Swift's fans "I'm hearing you out" after they were quick to bash him on TikTok following the pair's failed relationship.

The former couple were speculated to have dated between 2009 and 2010, with one of Taylor's hit songs rumored to be about John.

It all kicked off after John, 43, joined the popular social media platform by sharing a clip asking fans, "can someone tell me how to flip the camera?" before finally succeeding.

However, there weren't many happy commenters as some were quick to call out the singer for how things went down with him and Taylor.

One person wrote: "We will never forget what you did to our girl Taylor," while another added, "fun fact: Taylor isn't as old as you were when you guys dated."

The latter is a reference to lyrics from Taylor's 2010 song Dear John, which includes the lines, “don’t you think nineteen’s too young” and “you’re an expert at sorry and keeping the lines blurry.”

At the time, Taylor – who recently canceled her 2021 Lover Fest tour – was 19 and John was in his early 30s.

More people reference the song as one person wrote, "opinions on the age of 19?" while one chimed in, "omg isn't this that old guy Taylor Swift wrote a song about?"

Instead of shrugging off the comments, John posted a second video in which he is seen simply nodding his head with the captioned, "POV: you’re berating me and I’m hearing you out.”

The songwriter was not done there as he posted yet again, this time singing "that was a weird day," and adding, "goodnight new friends…more fun tomorrow."

While Taylor released Dear John after their apparent relationship, John didn't keep it tight-lipped, telling Rolling Stone in 2012 that the song "really humiliated" him, adding that it was "cheap songwriting."

It's been a rough couple of weeks for John, who last month admitted to "crying five times" while watching the "mistreatment" of Britney Spears in the new documentary, Framing Britney Spears.

However, fans again came after him for his own “toxic” treatment of women in Hollywood… particularly his long list of exes.

One tweeted: “If the Britney doc pissed you off at how America treated her, I highly recommend Jessica Simpson’s memoir. Warning: you will end up hating John Mayer."

Another added: “He admitted to writing a hit song about Jennifer Love Hewitt's body, said foul things about Jessica Simpson, Taylor, kisses and tells & f***ed half of Hollywood?

"IF, this is true it's only bc it touched a nerve of regret & remorse. He probably tried to hook up w/ Britney, too."

John dated Jessica Simpson from 2006 to 2007 and has said a series of “troubling” comments about her.

He has also publicly discussed his past romances with Jennifer Aniston, Katy Perry, Jennifer Love Hewitt among others.
