Taylor Swift intervenes in security situation with fan while performing on stage during Eras tour
Taylor Swift was less than impressed when she saw a fan at one of her shows getting hassled and decided to intervene.
The Lavender Haze singer, 33, was performing at the Lincoln Financial Field in Philidelphia on Saturday as part of her Eras tour when the incident took place.
In a short clip captured by a concert goer that has since gone viral on social media, Swift could be seen taking a pause from her track Bad Blood to give the stadium security a ticking off.
“She’s fine,” Swift is first seen telling security during the number. Then: “She wasn’t doing anything.” She then shouts: “Hey! Stop!” And then again, after the next scheduled use of the word “hey!” in the lyrics, she once again orders security to “stop,” before resuming her singing and choreography.
It’s unclear from the footage what had caused security to get involved, but according to reports the fan in question was being confronted for either being too close to a barricade or was being pulled away for taking photos, which is not prohibited on this tour.
Not sure what happened during Bad Blood but it was enough Taylor needed to get involved… #erastour #taylorswift #tserastourphilly pic.twitter.com/JcJMmi0dOJ

By Sunday morning, the clip had amassed more than three million views on Twitter.
A number of people also weighed in to offer their take on it, with the majority heaping praise on Swift for standing up for her fans.
Others however said it was not Swift’s place to interfere with security who at the end of the day are trying to keep both her and the thousands of people in attendance both happy and safe.
The Standard has contacted a representative for Taylor Swift for comment.
