Michael J. Fox has reached out to Taylor Swift following statements made that he would not want his son Sam to date her.
As we previously reported, Golden Globe hostesses Tina Fey and Amy Poehler poked fun at Swift for her numerous suitors, including her recent breakup with One Direction singer Harry Styles. “You know what Taylor Swift, stay away from Michael J. Fox’s son,” Fey quipped.
The situation was brought up again during an interview with Vulture when Fox was asked if he would be okay if Sam were to date the “I Knew You Were Trouble” starlet to which he replied, “No. No ... Just back off. I don’t keep up with it all," he explained. “But Taylor Swift writes songs about everybody she goes out with, right?...What a way to build a career."
Now it seems the actor felt he was a little harsh on the 23-year-old singer, Toronto Sun reports that Fox has since reached out to Swift as confirmed via a tweet.
“Hey everybody, Michael J. Fox got in touch with me today and we are good. Thank you for having my back,” she wrote.
