Taylor Swift has never come right out and said who her song “All Too Well” — a fan favorite that many consider to be among the best songs she’s ever written — is about.
However, it’s a generally accepted fact among Swifties that the track documents Taylor’s relationship with Jake Gyllenhaal, which lasted for a few months in the fall of 2010. And, as the actor’s just learned, Swifties never forget.
However, the comments section was soon flooded with Swifties quoting the lyrics to “All Too Well” — in particular, the line that goes, “You used to be a little kid with glasses in a twin-sized bed.”
Another fan wrote, “Give taylor swift her scarf back” — a reference to the “All Too Well” lyrics “Left my scarf there at your sister’s house/And you’ve still got it/In your drawer, even now” and “But you keep my old scarf/From that very first week/’Cause it reminds you of innocence/And it smells like me.”
Another wrote, “PS: Where’s the scarf?”
But if Jake is distressed over the takeover of his Instagram by people dredging up a brief relationship that ended nine years ago — and according to Taylor, didn’t end on the best of terms — well…he should’ve known better.
“u posted this pic and thought that the swifties would do nothing???? mistake,” wrote a fan.
