Taylor Swift Just Deleted (Almost) Everything From Her Social Media Accounts
Is this her breakup song to the internet?
Taylor Swift has gone silent.
On Friday, the pop star’s fans were shocked to see she had removed nearly everything from her social media platforms. Her 102+ million Instagram followers saw a literal "Blank Space," with zero posts on her once-active page. And her 85.4 million Twitter followers can only see tweets from 2008-2009. Facebook has a similar story, with the latest post time-stamped in December 2015.
It’s unclear why the 27-year-old singer deleted nearly every trace of her social media presence, but many are speculating that a new music release is imminent. One fan site recognized that today marks the three-year anniversary of her hit song, "Shake It Off."
But beyond these guesses, Swift fans were simply unable to accept the news—and had a lot of feelings to share about it.
“Tell us what is happening or I’ll call the police," one Twitter user said.
“Ladies and gentlemen, Taylor Swift has broke the Internet," said another, complete with a GIF of Swift flipping her hair.
The wipe comes just four days after Swift’s victory in court. According to People, Swift was awarded a symbolic $1 in a case against a former radio host David Mueller, who allegedly assaulted Swift at a meet-and-greet at Denver's Pepsi Center in June 2013.
"I want to thank Judge William J. Martinez and the jury for their careful consideration, my attorneys Doug Baldridge, Danielle Foley, Jay Schaudies and Katie Wright for fighting for me and anyone who feels silenced by a sexual assault, and especially anyone who offered their support throughout this four-year ordeal and two-year long trial process," Swift said in a statement obtained by People.
"I acknowledge the privilege that I benefit from in life, in society and in my ability to shoulder the enormous cost of defending myself in a trial like this. My hope is to help those whose voices should also be heard. Therefore, I will be making donations in the near future to multiple organizations that help sexual assault victims defend themselves."
