Lorde took to Instagram yesterday to post a photo of herself on tour in Norway, captioned, “In Oslo looking like a president’s wife or some shit.”
Later, in a since-deleted comment on that post, Oliver wrote, “Your funny babe you your well j [sic],” which has some Lorde fans pretty damn confused.
Oliver’s comment was called out for a couple of reasons — including his terrible spelling — and some fans even accused him of “creeping” on 20-year-old Lorde…
Jamie Oliver creeping on Lorde is like a horrible British remake of an American teen film involving a jock and an outcast falling in love.

…while some brushed it off as nothing more than a cheeky greeting from the ‘Naked Chef’:

Luckily, most fans have had fun with the whole situation, to the benefit of the internet:

Oh and while we’re here, check out this supremely cooked tweet from back in 2013:

Lorde fans also got vocal on Twitter earlier this month, after Seal dissed the singer’s recent single ‘Green Light’.
So yeah, don’t mess with ’em.
