Everyone should know by now that Lorde and Taylor Swift are good friends – and if you mess with one, you’re messing with them both.

DJ/music producer Diplo learned that lesson the hard way on Wednesday, when Lorde stepped in to protect Swift on Twitter after Diplo made a gross observation about Swift’s physique.

“Someone should make a kickstarter to get taylor swift a booty,” Diplo, who’s worked with several of music’s biggest names and is rumored to be dating Katy Perry, tweeted to his more than 1 million followers Wednesday afternoon.
