Singer-songwriter Oliver Tree has called out The Kid Laroi‘s director for ripping off Oliver’s music video “A**hole” with Lil Yachty.
According to Rolling Stone, Tree received messages from fans and people in the music industry, letting him know that The Kid Laroi’s “Thousand Miles” video, which came out last month, copied the video for his collab “A**hole.”
Apparently, those who know Tree were asking if he had helped direct Laroi’s video.
On April 28th, Tree posted a side-by-side TikTok video of his 2021 video next to The Kid Laroi’s to point out the similarities. See above.
In the caption for the social media post, Tree wrote, “They steal that many shots and thought I wouldn’t notice?”
He also told Rolling Stone, “The exact same frame, the exact same ambulance, the exact same thing. It just seemed a little bit odd that even the framing is exactly the same.”
Oliver Tree doesn’t blame Laroi, though. He points the finger at the video’s director Christian Breslauer, who Tree says actually follows him on Instagram.
Tree also claims that the copying isn’t a coincidence.
