Joseph Kahn, the man who directed Taylor Swift’s “Wildest Dreams” music video, is speaking out after a scathing NPR piece blasted the video, which is set in Africa, for using white actors. 

Kahn took to Twitter to point out that producer Jill Hardin, who worked on the video, “is a (super hot) black woman FYI.”

Kahn, who appeared on stage alongside Swift at Sunday’s VMAs, has also worked with many African-American artists, such as 50 Cent, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and DMX.

On Twitter, he seemingly reflected on the NPR article titled “Taylor Swift Is Dreaming Of A Very White Africa,” which has gone viral.

The NPR story blasts Swift and the portrayal of Africa in “Wildest Dreams.” 

“We are shocked to think that in 2015, Taylor Swift, her record label and her video production group would think it was OK to film a video that presents a glamorous version of the white colonial fantasy of Africa.” 

The article spurred a Twitter conversation about the video’s depiction of Africa.

Swift has yet to respond to the controversy. 

The video debuted ahead of Sunday’s VMAs and has garnered more than 14 million views on Vimeo.
