Taylor Swift’s ex-boyfriend Tom Hiddleston makes a subtle reference to his past relationship with the singer

Did Taylor Swift’s ex-boyfriend — we mean Tom Hiddleston — just make a subtle reference to his past relationship with the singer? Some Swifties are raising major eyebrows following Hiddleston’s brief appearance at the Emmy Awards on Monday, January 15.

Hiddleston, 42, presented the award for Outstanding Writing for a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie alongside Loki costar Ke Huy Quan during Monday’s awards ceremony. (The trophy went to Lee Sung Jin for Beef.)

“Good evening, everyone. It’s wonderful to be here. You all look lovely,” Hiddleston told the crowd. Quan added, “Hi everyone, Tom Hiddleston wants all of you to know he loves me very much, right Tom?”

The crowd laughed as Hiddleston responded, “I love you, man.”

Swifites (or at least the ones on Us’ staff) were quick to speculate that the entire exchange was poking fun at Hiddleston’s short-lived romance with Swift, 34, in 2016. During their three-month fling, Hiddleston was photographed wearing an “I [heart] T.S.” tank top during her 4th of July party in Rhode Island.

“The truth is, it was the Fourth of July and a public holiday and we were playing a game and I slipped and hurt my back,” Hiddleston said, explaining the shirt during an interview with GQ from March 2017. “And I wanted to protect the graze from the sun and said, ‘Does anyone have a T-shirt?’ And one of her friends said, ‘I’ve got this’ … And we all laughed about it. It was a joke.”
