Taylor Swift is known for her long list of ex-boyfriends, and while some have come and gone like a breeze in the wind, there were also some who refused to get out of the relationship without spewing some dirt about the "Wildest Dreams" singer. Calvin Harris is clearly one of Taylor Swift's ex-boyfriend who made headlines not only because of the breakup but also because of the time when he seemed to snap a few days after the breakup. To make things more serious, he took his rant to social media, where anyone who has access to the internet can see what the 33-year old DJ was talking about.
