Taylor Swift remains hidden on X amidst explicit pics scandal.

January 28, 2024

TLDR: Taylor Swift is no longer searchable on X following the scandal involving AI-generated explicit images of the pop star. Users searching for Swift on X will receive error messages stating “Something went wrong. Try reloading” and “Something went wrong, but don’t fret — it’s not your fault.” The search bug on X occurred shortly after the explicit images of Swift surfaced on the platform, which took nearly 24 hours to be taken down. The scandal prompted the actors’ union SAG-AFTRA to release a statement condemning the attack and calling for legislation to prevent the dissemination of fake explicit images without consent. It is unclear if Swift’s unsearchability on X is connected to the scandal. Both Swift and X CEO Elon Musk have not spoken publicly about the issue.
