Taylor Swift Blasts Tabloid After Helping Couple Announce Pregnancy
Taylor Swift shows more of her Swifties some love when she helped them make a baby announcement. But what was meant to be a sweet gesture turned into Taylor sharing her stance of sexism.
Jesse and Lindsey Rasmussen wanted a little help sharing the news about their new bundle of joy and got Taylor Swift in on the announcement during a meet-and-greet event. In the tweeted snapshot, Taylor held a sign saying "Baby's 1st Concert" while the couple held ultrasound photos of the baby. Not only did they get that special pop star moment, but Taylor also sent the couple a handwritten greeting card for the occasion, which you can see below.
"It wasn't until we got the ultrasound pictures that we thought of having them and the sign that said 'Baby's First Concert.' My wife Lindsey is a kindergarten teacher, so I left all of the creative sign making up to her," Jesse told E! regarding their plans to meet Taylor.
And although they were nervous at first, the couple were surprised that at how warm she was. "We had the sign and the pictures with us sort of hidden just in case we chickened out," he said. "We were both kind of nervous. Then she walked into the room and just started hugging people. That was the cool thing. She didn't just sort of shake your hand and say hi. She comes up and hugs you and thanks you first."
As the news went viral, various news outlets picked it up including OK!. While the UK tabloid shared the news like everyone else, Taylor didn't appreciate the fact that it not only referred to her as "Harry Styles' ex girlfriend" but also implied that the "Blank Space" singer was the one who was pregnant in a now-deleted tweet.
But that wasn't all, she made sure to drive her message home by posting a killer whale meme with with the message, "I came out of the ocean because you need to stop."
While the Rasmussens felt a little bad about what happened to Taylor, Jesse gave her props for how she handled it.
The lesson of this story: Mess with Taylor, and she'll just bite right back.
