A video featuring multiple Grammy-winning artist Taylor Swift holding up a flag on the red carpet, allegedly endorsing former President and 2024 presidential hopeful Donald Trump’s victory in the 2021 election over Joe Biden, has been shared by numerous X (formerly Twitter) users to thousands of followers.
The DFRAC Team conducted an extensive investigation and debunked these claims. They performed a reverse-image search on the viral image and found no evidence to support it. Further verification on Taylor Swift’s social media platforms and the YouTube verified account of @RecordingAcademy revealed that Taylor did not hold up any such flag as depicted in the viral video.
DFRAC’s fact-check confirms that the viral image depicting Taylor Swift holding a pro-Trump flag in relation to the 2021 election is false.
