Taylor Swifts new app “The Swift Life” has become a breeding ground for homophobic Donald Trump supporters, a new report claims.
The app, which was launched just two days ago, is supposed to be a forum where Swift’s fans can come together and gush over the Reputation singer by sharing updates and unlocking “Tay Emojis.”
However, fans have started to use the app to discuss politics after one user voiced their support for Donald Trump. A fan named Britt posted, “Republicans and Trump supporters have just as much right to be here as everyone. There are people who voted for him or may vote Republican but didn’t vote for him. They may not agree with his beliefs but at least he supports our troops.”

Her post sparked some conversation, where another user responded, “I just don’t accept gays, lesbians and bisexuals.”
Britt continued to defend her position. She wrote: “I felt like my husband who is in the military is safer under Trump’s leadership than Hillary’s as she’s done some things I don’t agree with when it comes to the safety of our troops… at the end of the day it came down to what I felt was best. There are people who voted for reasons other than Trump being a bigoted, sexist homophobe.”
As the controversial posts about Trump went viral on other social media outlets, Trump-loving Swift fans began tweeting in defense of their choice to support the president, citing free speech.
“I downloaded Tay’s app and before you start criticizing me I’m a trump supporter,” one fan wrote on Twitter. “I don’t see why people talk politics in there???? Like helloooooo let’s talk about our fav. We should support Taylor and I’m so disappointed she didn’t have one million downloads a minute.”
