Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn broke up: Here's how the Swifties are reacting

It's the kind of heartbreak time could never mend. Sad news, Swifties! If you haven't heard, Taylor Swift and her boyfriend of six years, Joe Alwyn, have reportedly split.

This comes as a shock to fans—as the couple has been together for nearly seven years (and five T.S. albums). Swifties everywhere are mourning Tay's split from her "London Boy." We've rounded up the most relatable weekend reactions...

The first stage of grief *is* denial, which seems to be the case for most fans since learning of the breakup. From memes to lyrical references, the news circulating on Twitter has been met with mixed reactions. 

Some fans are trying to combat the rumors, while others are tearfully accepting the relationship's fate. Others have turned to humor to cope. 

We're also reminiscing on the songs that have come from Taylor and Joe's "Love Story" (some of her finest, we dare say).  

Meanwhile, on TikTok, more Swifties are losing their minds over the separation; one user even declared that their split "hurts more than any breakup I've had" with "Cornelia Street" (a song known to be about Joe) playing in the background.

Some have jokingly declared to join Taylor in single solidarity (preparing to enter the next era as equals, perhaps?). #relatable

In the end, we wish them both the best after the split. Breakups are tough (even for the queen of the music industry). But one thing's for sure: Even if they're no longer together, the songs Taylor wrote about (and with) Joe (aka William Bowery, RIP) will always be cherished.
