Social media quickly attacked Taylor for lauding 2017 as a great year when it has been racked with political tension.


Loyal fans leapt to the "Gorgeous" singer's defense – pointing out that she had several incredible accomplishments this year.

Taylor's record-breaking album – "reputation" – was a massive critical and commercial success, earning rave reviews and selling over 1.6 million copies in just one month of release. "reputation" is hailed as the best-selling album of 2017.

The pop star also scored two Grammy nominations and took home Song of the Year at the CMA Awards for "Better Man" – the No. 1 country song she penned for Little Big Town.

Look what you made her do. Congrats on an epic 2017, Taylor!
