Taylor Swift fans demand singer show support for Palestine

Evan Rosen | New York Daily News

Taylor Swift is under mounting pressure from fans to show her support for Palestine, with the hashtag #SwiftiesforPalestine becoming the fourth-most-trending topic on X Wednesday afternoon.

Many supporters of the musician ramped up their calls for action online in recent days, following a deadly airstrike Sunday, which reportedly killed 45 Palestinians in Rafah.

One post, which tagged the singer, said, “Your silence has been deafening and in times like these you should speak up!!”

The post, which had earned 44,000 likes by midday Thursday, also contained a formal letter addressed to Swift, urging her to speak out on the “current humanitarian crisis” in Palestine.

Another widely shared fan post called on those attending Swift’s concerts in Madrid to bring signage to try to get the pop star’s attention.
