A Taylor Swift fan attempted to sell their used disposable contacts that had supposedly seen Swift's Era Tour for $10,000 on Depop, prompting disgust and occasional admiration from other Swifties. The seller later clarified that it was a joke, but some fans wished they had thought of the same approach.
In another display of fandom that crossed the line, some fans held up photos of Swift's late grandmother during her Nashville stop of the tour, causing controversy on social media. Despite this, some fans called out Swifties for their parasocial tendencies and lack of respect for her privacy. Swift has also been fueling rumors of a romance with The 1975 singer Matty Healy during the tour.
