Taylor Swift's Swastika Scandal

Taylor Swift may have gained sympathy from the public when Kanye West upstaged her at MTV’s Video Music Awards last month, but her latest scandal won't earn much pity. Swift was in attendance when Katy Perry’s 25th birthday party went from an all-white, Willy Wonka-themed affair to full-blown painting fest on Friday—and ended up arm-in-arm with a man who had painted a swastika across his chest. Thanks to 15 paint-toting Oompa Loompas, Perry's guests painted the town red—and blue and green and yellow and pink—and “went crazy” turning their bright white attire into multi-colored messes, reports The Mirror. During the melee, the country sweetheart managed to pose with an attendee with a bright red Nazi swastika splashed across his white T-shirt. Though the man's arm is around a smiling Swift’s waist in the photo, her rep says he was just one of 100 people she took pictures with that night. “She doesn't know who this guy is and she didn’t realize what was on his shirt,” the rep claims. Now would be a good time for Kanye to step back in.
