Taylor Swift Swastika Controversy (Photo)
Squeaky-clean country singer was celebrating Katy Perry’s 25th birthday during a star-studded Willy Wonka-themed party in Hollywood over the weekend when she was photographed with a man with a swastika painted on his shirt.
Partygoers had been told to wear all white and left the party covered in neon paint. A man claiming to be Taylor’s “new boyfriend “posted photos of himself dancing with the singer on b9board.com early Thursday.
“Taylor Swift and I are officially dating,” the still-unidentified poster wrote.
A rep for the “Love Story” hitmaker defended the 19-year-old in a statement this afternoon, telling TMZ.com: “Taylor took pictures with about 100 people that night … she doesn’t know who this guy is and she didn’t realize what was on his shirt.”
Photos of Taylor dancing with Swastika Guy in the background also surfaced after the bash. She tweeted about the party on Sunday, but made no reference to the racist shirt.
“Katyperry knows how to throw a birthday party! I would even go as far as to say it was party-licious. Best EVER. Happy bday, pretty girl!!”
