Taylor Swift To The Rescue: Pop Sensation Defends Baltimore County Fan From Overzealous Security Guard
BALTIMORE COUNTY - Famous pop singer Taylor Swift appeared to have some bad blood with a security guard during a recent show in Philadelphia. She stood up for one of her fan's wildest dreams when security personnel invaded their "blank" personal space.
WJZ reports that the fan, Kelly Inglis, is a Baltimore County mom who teaches at an elementary school in Timonium.
Swift was in the middle of performing her 2014 hit "Bad Blood" when she noticed a security guard harassing a fan.
"He just kept telling us not to touch the rail, and anytime we did anything, he was on top of us," Inglis told WJZ. "We're dancing and having fun, and he didn't like it, and Taylor noticed. "
In social media videos of the incident, Swift can be heard saying, "She's fine" and "She wasn't doing anything," before finally yelling, "Hey, stop" twice.
Inglis told her story in a TikTok posted on her friend Caitlin Gabell's account.
"Basically, the guard had been harassing our group all night just to, like, he kept telling us not to touch the rail, and every time we did anything, he was like on top of us," she said in the TikTok posted Sunday. "We're dancing, we're having fun, and he didn't like it. And Taylor noticed that I was having fun and that he didn't like it, and she didn't like it. And then he got escorted out, and they offered us free tickets!"
The two women returned for Swift's second Philly show. Afterward, Inglis posted a heartwarming TikTok praising Swift for sticking up for her.
"The fact that you did that for me last night and you stood up for me meant so so so so much," she said. "And like, you did that for me and your fans, and if there's anything I know about you, you just want your fans to go to the show and have fun, and that's all we were doing."
Taylor Swift's Eras Tour continues in Massachusetts next weekend.
