Taylor Swift opened the 2018 American Music Awards with her song “I Did Something Bad,” and got bleeped for cursing.

On Tuesday, the 28-year-old appeared on stage at Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theatre to perform the track from her 2017 album “reputation.” In the song, Swift says: “If a man talks s—, then I owe him nothing / I don’t regret it one bit, ’cause he had it coming.”

During the live show, ABC bleeped the expletive and fans took to Twitter to share their reactions.

Some praised the performance and applauded the singer for belting out the lyrics.

Others pointed that this is the first time Swift has been bleeped on TV, and said they never thought it would happen to the “Bad Blood” artist.

Even though s— is considered an explicit word, Twitter users wondered why it was blocked. Additional fans weren’t pleased with the removed word.
