Scooter Braun, a record executive whose company has acquired Big Machine records which owns all of Swift’s recordings apart from her latest album, Lover has finally broken his silence on Swift's accusations. Swift posted on her social media that she was stopped to perform her back catalogue at the American Music Awards and on a Netflix special.
Scooter posted on Facebook an open letter to Taylor Swift, he said that he did it because he can no longer stand the death threats against him and his family by Taylor Swift's rabid fans. He even shared a screen cap of one of the threats he got.
"Since your public statement last week there have been numerous death threats directed at my family. This morning I spoke out publicly for the first time saying I wouldn’t participate in a social media war. However I came home tonight to find my wife had received a phone call threatening the safety of our children as well as other threats seen above. I won’t go in to the details of this past week. I have been at a loss. Thinking of my wife and children, my team and their families, I have gone through a range of emotions on how to deal with this. I write this now only after a deep breathe and much reflection. I am certain there is no situation ever worth jeopardizing anyone’s safety."

He also said that he is very disappointed on her silence “after being notified by your attorney 4 days ago of these ongoing threats,” he notes, “I’m still hopeful we can fix this.” He also said that he was “shocked and disheartened to hear” that his acquisition of Big Machine “caused you so much pain.” He also said that he have already made several attempts to speak with Taylor to “rectify the situation” but says Taylor would not speak to him, noting, “It almost feels as if you have no interest in ever resolving the conflict.”
He concluded that “Many have told me that a meeting will never happen as this is not about truth or resolution but instead a narrative for you. I am hopeful that is not the case. .I continue to wish you the best and hope we can resolve this.”
