There are two types of people in this world: those who are on team Taylor Swift and those who are defending Scooter Braun in the wake of his acquisition of the pop star's catalog. Cara Delevingne, a longtime squad member, obviously falls into the first one — and Justin Bieber, who owes much of his career to his manager Braun, does not. So when the "Sorry" singer expressed his support for Braun, Delevingne quickly called out Bieber.
After Bieber shared an Instagram post in praise Braun, and accused Swift of riling up her fans to "bully" Braun, the model jumped into his comments, in support of Swift. Delevingne began by responding to a comment Hailey Bieber left her husband's post that said "Gentleman."
"Gentleman? @haileybieber @justinbieber you must be bored," Delevingne wrote in the comments. "I wish you spent less time sticking up for men and more time trying to understand women and respecting their valid reactions."
She didn't stop there; Delevingne suggested that Bieber's issues are larger than just this Instagram post. "As a married man, you should be lifting women up instead of tearing them down because you are threatened," she added. "I am not sure you actually understand what an apology is. This issue that @taylorswift is talking out is about far more than a picture and you know that. As you said, you haven't spoken to her in years which means you definitely don't understand the situation. I do. Take a step back and try and learn from this. We should all be on the same team. End of story."

Hey Taylor. First of all i would like to apologize for posting that hurtful instagram post, at the time i thought it was funny but looking back it was distasteful and insensitive.. I have to be honest though it was my caption and post that I screenshoted of scooter and Kanye that said “taylor swift what up” he didnt have anything to do with it and it wasnt even a part of the conversation in all actuality he was the person who told me not to joke like that.. Scooter has had your back since the days you graciously let me open up for you.! As the years have passed we haven’t crossed paths and gotten to communicate our differences, hurts or frustrations. So for you to take it to social media and get people to hate on scooter isn’t fair. What were you trying to accomplish by posting that blog? seems to me like it was to get sympathy u also knew that in posting that your fans would go and bully scooter. Anyway, One thing i know is both scooter and i love you. I feel like the only way to resolve conflict is through communication. So banter back and fourth online i dont believe solves anything. I’m sure Scooter and i would love to talk to you and resolve any conflict, pain or or any feelings that need to be addressed. Neither scooter or i have anything negative to say about you we truly want the best for you. I usually don’t rebuttal things like this but when you try and deface someone i loves character thats crossing a line..

Delevingne isn't the only celebrity to take sides in this very public feud between Swift and Braun, which escalated after Swift took to Tumblr to write about her own thoughts on Braun purchasing her catalog, revealing "the incessant, manipulative bullying [she's] received at [Braun's] hands for years."
Katy Perry, Swift's recent on-again friend, left a public comment on a petition for Swift to re-record her whole catalog so she could this time own the rights to her own music. "I stand with Taylor. Stay strong my friend," she wrote, after signing it.

As for those who remain on Braun (and Bieber's) side, that apparently includes Kendall Jenner, Jenna Dewan, Kacey Musgraves and Demi Lovato who all "liked" an Instagram post from Yael Cohen Braun, Braun's wife, that suggested Swift first "passed" on "the opportunity to own [her] masters."
