Justin Bieber may have genuinely just wanted a banana, but fans think he mocked Taylor Swift in the process of grabbing one.

Hailey Bieber (neé Baldwin) filmed her husband on Sunday for a live Instagram video. During the livestream, the “Sorry” singer goofed off in his kitchen, and at one point tried grabbing a banana from a bunch on the counter.

“It’s not the banana I wanted! It’s not the right banana. It has no head,” he shouted, imitating a recent video of Swift struggling to grab a banana after having Lasik surgery.

Hailey, who was behind the camera, laughed at Bieber’s imitation and said, “That was so funny.”

Swift’s mom shared the original video with Jimmy Fallon, who showed the clip during the “Lover” singer’s appearance on Thursday’s episode of NBC’s “The Tonight Show.”

“I can’t even be mad. I’m just impressed that you infiltrated my family,” Swift told Fallon. “I don’t even know how you did that! Nobody has my mom’s number.”

Fans weren’t impressed with Bieber’s impression of the 10-time Grammy winner, and accused him of copying the songstress for “relevance.”

Other fans jumped to Bieber’s defense, saying he was just “joking” and that the backlash was “ridiculous.”

Some fans directed their attention toward Hailey’s involvement in the video.

One twitter user shared a video of someone telling the model to “shut up,” and captioned it, “if i could emphasize a video 1000x over i would xx @haileybieber.”

Hailey, who was tagged in the video post, responded to the fan in a series of tweets.

“I never knew I could make somebody so upset.. truly I’m so sorry you’re THIS upset?! Lord have mercy I hope I’m never this upset about someone I don’t know!!” she wrote.

Hailey went on to say that she thinks it’s “awesome how passionate” the fan is about Swift, but that hating her is just going to “make you miserable.”

The livestream came three months after Swift accused Bieber, along with his manager Scooter Braun and another one of Braun’s clients, Kanye West, of “incessant, manipulative bullying” in a heated Tumblr post.

Her claim was made in response to Braun’s acquisition of the master recordings from her first six albums. He gained control of the catalog through his purchase of Swift’s former label, Big Machine Records.

Bieber apologized at the time, writing, “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.”

However, Bieber also criticized Swift in the post.

“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,” he wrote.

Representatives for Swift, Bieber, and Hailey didn’t immediately respond to Insider’s requests for comment.
