Once again, this A+ list singer truly goes to the ends of the earth to keep her world sanitized as only she sees fit to distribute it to the masses.
Any time anything derogatory or critical or not in her plan to present to the public makes her way out she sends out her legal team.
She really is petty.
Taylor Swift Threatens Lawsuit Against Critic, ACLU Issues Challenge
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is challenging lawsuit threats made by Taylor Swift and her lawyer against a Northern California blogger.
On Sept. 5, Meghan Herning, an editor for the website PopFront, posted an article titled “Swiftly to the alt-right: Taylor subtly gets the lower case kkk in formation,” which called for Swift to publicly denounce white supremacy after many white supremacists and members of the alt-right have co-opted her music as messages of support for their cause. The article is critical of Swift, reading that “silence in the face of injustice means support for the oppressor.”
Herning received a letter from Swift’s lawyer on Oct. 25 demanding that PopFront issue a retraction and take the story down by Oct. 24, a day before the letter is dated. The letter also privately declared the singer’s denouncement of the white supremacist movement, but demanded that Herning not publish it under copyright protection.
The ACLU has since published the letter, claiming in a letter of their own that copyright law does not apply because “this is not a commercial use, and there is no market for this letter, in part because it is tied to the facts of this specific case.”
The letter takes subtle jabs at some of Swift’s lyrics, saying that “criticism is never pleasant, but a celebrity has to shake it off, even if the critique may damage her reputation,” and that “applying these fundamental constitutional principles to your four ‘hideous falsehoods’ shows that not even in your wildest dreams can they constitute defamation.” – Read more
