Taylor Swift made headlines over the weekend, but it wasn’t for her singing. During a concert in Philadelphia on Saturday, a moment involving Swift and a fan went viral. While performing her hit song “Bad Blood,” Swift paused to address a situation between a concertgoer and a security guard. The incident was captured on video and quickly spread on social media, garnering millions of views.
In the video, Swift can be heard shouting into the crowd, expressing her frustration and concern for the fan. She reassured the audience by saying, “She’s fine” and added, “She wasn’t doing anything.” Swift then shouted, “Hey, stop” multiple times, clearly advocating for the fan’s well-being.
The videos circulating on social media did not provide a clear context for the incident, leaving viewers curious about what had occurred. However, it was later revealed that the fan involved was Kelly Inglis, an elementary school teacher and mother from Maryland, according to CBS News Baltimore. Inglis took to TikTok to share her side of the story through a video posted on her friend’s account.
In the TikTok video, Inglis mentioned that the security guard had been harassing her and her group throughout the night. She explained that whenever they engaged in any activity or enjoyed themselves, the guard would closely monitor their actions and express disapproval. Inglis further disclosed that the guard was eventually escorted out, and as a resolution, her group was offered tickets to the following night’s concert.
The stadium where the event took place acknowledged the incident and assured that it was addressed and resolved internally. The specific details of the resolution were not disclosed, but it indicated that steps were taken to address the situation and prevent similar occurrences in the future.
Following the incident, Inglis took to her own TikTok account to express her heartfelt gratitude to Taylor Swift for standing up for her during the previous night’s concert. Inglis, who identified herself as a dedicated fan of Swift since her teenage years, shared how much it meant to her that Swift intervened and supported her. She expressed her deep appreciation and emphasized that the gesture meant a great deal to her.
Inglis also mentioned that the concert she attended on Saturday marked her thirteenth Taylor Swift concert, highlighting her long-standing admiration for the singer and the significance of the incident. Swift’s Eras Tour, her first tour in five years, began in March and has been highly anticipated by fans around the world.
As the tour continues, Swift’s unwavering support for her fans and her willingness to address and rectify potential issues demonstrate her commitment to creating a safe and enjoyable concert experience for everyone in attendance.
