Happy Speak Now release day, Swifties.

While many Taylor Swift fans are living for this day to re-listen to all of their favorite songs re-recorded from Speak Now…I can’t say John Mayer is feeling the same way.

The album is infamous for containing songs like “Dear John,” which illuded to the short-lived relationship between Swift and Mayer when she was 19 and he was 32.

Taylor Swift has been open about the fact that all of these album re-releases are not for fans to publicly attack the men she used to be with but rather to regain the rights to the albums and reshare the beloved music with her fans.

She even said on stage before singing “Dear John:”

“I’m not putting this album out so you can go on the internet and defend me against someone you think I wrote a song about 14 million years ago.”

John Mayer, however, is not so confident that he will escape the hate of die-hard Taylor Swift fans.

Let’s not forget what happened to Jake Gyllenhaal’s social media annihilation when his Instagram post got 47,000 comments.

Last night just hours before the re-release, John Mayer shared a collection of Instagram photos from his show with Dead & Company at Folsom Field in Boulder, Colorado. The final image of the carousel is drones spelling out “Please Be Kind.”

A pre-courser to remind fans not to cyber bully him?

While the effort was there on both John and Taylor’s end to minimize the public bashing of what has happened in the past… it failed.

His Instagram post was QUICKLY flooded with comments from the Swifties, leaving no room for mercy.

“It’s over for you, John Mayonnaise. Speak never”

“Dear John, speak never.”

“Funny, your cover is purple. You’re shunned from that color; speak never, John.”

“Come on now, John; you are practically begging for these hate comments.”

“Now go stand in the corner and think about what you did.”

“What are Swifties gonna do when the clock strikes midnight, and nothing happens to John.”

“Hope you’re having a great day John Clayton Mayer (she was 19).”

“She ate you up and left zero crumbs.”

“She was 19. you were 32. THE MATH AINT MATHIN JOHNNY.”

“Are there Taylor swift easter eggs in this caption?”

“I don’t like you!”

Honestly, I am surprised that Mayer thought he was going to escape this, given the attack he got on Twitter when “Would’ve, Could’ve, Should’ve “ dropped.

At least John Mayer and Jake Gyllenhaal can band together and form a little support group.

I don’t think any ex-boyfriend of Swift’s will ever be off the hook, so the support group can grow as fires are started.
