Taylor Swift Fans Are Sending Death Threats To ‘folklore’ Reviewers Who Didn’t Give It A 10/10

With Taylor Swift surprise-releasing her eighth album folklore last week, Swifties are mostly celebrating having 16 new tracks to overanalyse and play on repeat. But a vocal group of stans are currently attacking music journalists online for daring to say the album is anything less than the peak of music.

In reaction to Pitchfork senior editor Jill Mapes giving the album a 8/10 review, she has targeted by stans both on and offline with death threats. Some have suggested that Pitchfork hire ‘actual’ indie music critics to review a Taylor Swift album.

 

Some have gone further, with a series of ‘hexing’ tweets with satanic images of Swift.

 

Quote

Anyone who comes after the Dark Queen, Taylor Swift, dies alone and will be burned forever,” reads one tweet in Ethiopian language Amharic. “You will be filled with your dark fears and demons. You will never be happy and sleep well again.”

Quote

Mapes has also been directly targeted by stans both on and offline with death threats. As she shared on her now-private Twitter account, she’s received late-night threatening phone calls to her mobile, as well as tweets implying fans know her address.

Quote

Meanwhile, stans are also very angry at the New York Times for having pop critic Jon Caramanica, who has covered Swift’s career for a decade now, review folklore, clearly “indie alternative”.

Quote

“Your credibility is freefalling after this,” writes one, sounding like an articulate Trump. “Please, consider apologizing for this mistake and retiring the article. Thank you.”

Are late-night threatening phone calls a joke now?

Imagine the outrage if Taylor was the one receiving late night threatening phone calls.

They’re kind of gross ngl. Was going through some of their accounts earlier and Taylor fans seem to be really hurting inside in their personal life. 
one who got brigaded for telling a reviewer to kill herself instantly got on the defensive saying she was only kidding and it was abuse to keep calling her out about it. :deadbanana2:

absolutely disgusting. These rats need to leave the victim alone, this harassment is unacceptable. Imagine getting that triggered over a review, what a joke. They must suffer consequences

Pathetic :toofunny3: Twitter needs to take accountability  for curbing this kind of behaviour. Whether they are serious or not, these rabid stans know they'll get a rise out of their victims especially when there's hundreds, maybe thousands doing this within a short space of time.

 

I love the album but Taylor more than any other MPG is guilty of weaponising her fanbase to further her agenda hence their delusions of grandeur and bullying machinations.

That doesn't make it okay and in any case Taylor is the only entitled MPG that enables vitriolic bullying.

Imagine pretending that every fanbase harasses innocent people and gets this upset over 8.0 and 6.0 reviews :isudumblmao:

 

Regardless, stan Twitter is the worst of the worst overall
