Taylor Swift recently teamed up with Boston’s Kiss FM for a contest to find her “biggest fan”. The prize? A meet and greet with the singer herself. Only problem is, the whole thing had to be shut down when 4Chan hijacked it and some 39-year-old weirdo won.
Earlier this month, some 4Chan user popped up, claiming that he wanted to make his “creepy” friend’s dream of meeting TaySwift come true. See the below original posting (via Gawker):
Of course, the thought of trolling kids and having some freak meet Taylor (thereby trolling her, too?) was of utmost importance to 4Chan users, and that campaign soon spread to Reddit and before you knew it, Charles was in first place. No one knows if Charles is even real, but either way, Kiss FM has decided not to take any chances and put a stop to the competition, stating on their website:
Disappointingly, we have determined that the integrity of the “Taylor Swift’s Biggest Fan” contest has been compromised. In accordance with our contest rules, effective immediately, the contest has been terminated. We apologize to all of our loyal listeners who have participated.
Huh, fair enough. People always have to ruin nice things. Taylor Swift may have a sense of humour, but there’s nothing funny about being one-on-one with a possible sex offender.
