TAYLOR GARNERS 545 MILLION STREAMS

The Red singer has also secured herself the third-largest streaming week for an album, accumulating over 545 million streams in its first seven days after release. While some would argue that people don’t buy albums the way that they used to, Taylor’s fans would clearly disagree.

Hollywood Unlocked did however mention that this album has not been without drama.

“The former country singer did receive a lot of backlash after releasing the music video for her song, ‘Anti-Hero,’ which initially included a scene where Swift stands on a weighing scale as she watched the scale move upwards to the word ‘fat,’ “

As per Hollywood Unlocked.

Social media users pleaded with Taylor to edit the video.

Some even called the scene “triggering” and said that she was “fat-shaming” her fans who may struggle with eating disorders.

“The following day, Apple Music and YouTube both redacted the video and replaced it with an edited version that had taken out the “offensive” word,” said the publication.

‘I AM GLAD SHE DID THIS’

Tweeps immediately saw the change and applauded Taylor for listening to their suggestion.

“I’m glad Taylor Swift removed the shot of the scale reading ‘fat.’ Yes, it’s about her eating disorder and body dysmorphia, but they’re both rooted in fatphobia. She has a greater responsibility to her audience not to be fatphobic in recovery because she knows how toxic that is!,” said @molliekatie.

“Taylor changed her ‘Anti-Hero’ music video on apple music and it doesn’t directly show the word [fat] on the scale. so glad she listened to criticism,” said @iwantyourbelly.

Other tweeps felt that Taylor should not have been forced to remove the ‘fat’ reading in her video as it spoke to some of her fans as well.
