Did John Mayer send Taylor Swift a nasty birthday message?

The singer has found himself in hot water after tweeting (and deleting) a message for Taylor Swift on her birthday.

T.Swift turned 27 this week and some of Hollywood’s hottest stars took to social media to share the love.
Gigi Hadid doled out the congratulations writing, "So inspired every day by what an incredible friend you are !!!!!!!!" and Camila Cabello wrote, “Here's to an amazing friend and a magical woman.”
But it looks like her ex-boyfriend John Mayer wasn’t feeling party ready.
Instead, the 39-year-old reportedly took to twitter announcing that, "Tuesday, December 13 may be the lamest day of the year, conceptually."
Upon realising the faux pas John swiftly (pun, intended) deleted the tweet.
The Gravity singer later clarified his words, saying it wasn't about Swift.
He wrote, "NOPE. No. Nuh-uh. People I am 39. I am deleting those tweets. Come right at me for doing so. Absolutely no shade," he wrote.
As fans will recall, John dated a then-19-year-old Taylor Swift for just three months. But this time together proved enough inspiration for Taylor who subsequently wrote and released the hit song, Dear John.
The song’s lyrics included, "Dear John, I see it all, now it was wrong / Don't you think 19 is too young to be played by your dark twisted games, when I loved you so?"
The pair dated from November 2009 to February 2010.
Speaking with Rolling Stone two years after the breakup, John said, "I didn't deserve it. I'm pretty good at taking accountability now, and I never did anything to deserve that. It was a really lousy thing for her to do."
He continued, "I never got an email. I never got a phone call."
"I was really caught off-guard, and it really humiliated me at a time when I'd already been dressed down. I mean, how would you feel if, at the lowest you've ever been, someone kicked you even lower?"
