Taylor Swift Manages to Irk Philadelphia Fans
If you were lucky enough to score tickets to one of Taylor Swift's Philadelphia at Lincoln Financial Field, you had a lot to be happy about. By all accounts, the shows were awesome.
From the opening of Miss Americana & the Heartbreak Prince to the end of Karma, fans were on their feet screaming and sing along to every song during this stop of Taylor Swift's Eras tour.
On Saturday night, Taylor Swift even got the chance to play hero while performing her hit Bad Blood, standing up for a fan who was having issues with security.
So, what could have possibly happened to irk Philadelphia fans? It happened during her Friday night performance. Taylor was chatting about her song Gold Rush, and clarifying what she was singing about when she sings about her "Eagles t-shirt hanging from my door."
Was she singing about the rock and roll great Eagles, or the NFL Eagles? She stated that it was about the NFL team, and then said, "I'm from Philly, of course it's the team."
The hometown crowd loves when performers give their city a shout-out. However, this is Philadelphia. We all know the stories about Philly fans. So, what's the problem?
Taylor isn't technically from Philly. She's lived in Reading and Wyomissing, both in Berks County. It's a stretch to even refer to that as a suburb of Philly.
Fans have flooded the internet with some pretty nasty comments.
