Taylor Swift slammed by 'disappointed fans' for 'shameless self-promotion' at blockbuster Eras Tour film premiere after staying silent on Israel terror that has killed 2,400

 

She gushed about the film on Instagram, where she has 274m followers. While Taylor Swift basked in the glare of photographers’ flashes last night at the blockbuster premiere of her Eras Tour film, many of her Jewish fans hoped she may use the moment to speak out about the ongoing terror in Israel. But rather than comment on the attack by Hamas or escalating crisis, Swift – who is comfortable speaking out on US politics – stuck to self-promotion.

She posed with Beyoncé, fawned in front of cameras and lapped up the closed-down Grove shopping center in Los Angeles. On Instagram, Swift boasted: ‘PREMIERE DAY. Andddd I can’t really wrap my head around this but…. Look what you genuinely made me do: Due to unprecedented demand we’re opening up early access showings of The Eras Tour Concert Film on THURSDAY in America and Canada!!’ It left a sour taste for some Swifties.

Terrible timing. Kids are getting raped. Innocent people are dying on both sides. Hamas!! A terrorist organization is slaughtering Israelis…but it’s “launch day”???’ fumed Jewish New York City jeweler Nicole Rose. ‘Echo every word. Really surprised at Taylor Swift,’ Meghan McCain added. ‘Shocked. Mum was the word and then self promo during a time like this when she has SO MANY ISRAELI AND JEWISH FANS. Ugh the disappointment is real,’ Amanda Hirsch, the influencer behind the Not Skinny But Not Fat Instagram account, chimed in.

For days, others have been calling on Swift to use her platform of 274million followers to comment on the crisis or publicize resources. She has stayed silent. Swift’s film documents one of the six sold-out shows Swift performed at the SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California over the summer as part of her ongoing Eras Tour, which kicked off in March and serves as a retrospective of her 17-year career.

It has already amassed a whopping $100million in presale tickets alone and will be available to watch exclusively at AMC Theatres starting Friday, October 13. Missing from the fan-packed action was Swift’s rumored beau Travis Kelce, 34, as the Kansas City Chiefs tight end is scheduled to play the Denver Broncos on Thursday at his team’s home stadium. Other stars in attendance included Flavor Flav, Mariska Hargitay, Jenna Davis and Violet McGraw hit the red carpet.

Ahead of her arrival, Swift shared her excitement and announced that the ‘unprecedented demand’ for tickets has led to an on slot of ‘early access showings’ starting Thursday in the U.S. and Canada.
