Taylor Swift breaks from song onstage to YELL at ‘security guard’ in audience seemingly for treatment of fan: ‘She wasn’t doing anything!’
- Taylor was in the midst of a performance of her hit Bad Blood at the Lincoln Financial Field stadium when she got distracted by the goings-on in the crowd
- She shouted at a security guard during her set, apparently defending one of her fans in the crowd while performing in Philadelphia
Taylor Swift repeatedly broke away from the song she was singing onstage on Saturday to yell at a security guard in the audience.
The 33-year-old pop star is whirling through her Eras Tour, which is currently in Philadelphia for three shows over Mother’s Day weekend.
In footage that went viral online, Taylor was in the midst of a performance of her hit Bad Blood at the Lincoln Financial Field stadium when she got distracted by the goings-on in the crowd.
Based on what she was shouting, it appeared as though her outburst was provoked by the way a security guard was treating a female fan.
She pulled away from the lyrics twice to bellow: ‘Hey, stop!’ over the edge of the stage, adding at one point: ‘She wasn’t doing anything!’
Twitter saw it first, but not sure what happened on the floor at #Philly #N2 where Taylor had to intervene. #tserastour #tserastourphilly #taylorswift
Intervention: Taylor Swift repeatedly broke away from the song she was singing onstage Saturday to seemingly yell at a security guard in the audience
‘She wasn’t doing anything!’: Based on what she was shouting, it appeared as though her outburst was provoked by the way a security guard was treating a female fan
One witness, who claimed that security on her side were also being aggressive, said: ‘Taylor was yelling at a security guard because they fully kept putting their hands on us to physically push us off of the barricade instead of just telling us to move.
‘We weren’t throwing anything, we weren’t screaming anything insane, she was fully coming over to dance and sing with us and it resulted in security being extremely aggressive for no reason.’
The witness told DailyMail.com that the ordeal which made Taylor break from her singing happened on the other side of the stage from where they were – but the security were acting similar ‘on both sides.’
‘Every time Taylor came over to us they would scream at us to get away,’ they said.
Briana Layfield, who caught the moment on camera and was standing near the guard who was shouted at, wrote online: ‘Hey Taylor Swift, THANK YOU from all of us on the floor for putting that security guard in his place.
‘He was a PITA (pain in the a**) the whole night and the fact that this happened during Bad Blood makes it even better.’
She said: ‘One security guy in particular was nitpicky the entire night. If your toes touched the metal barricade you got screamed at. Total overkill.’
According to the witnesses, the security guard then got ushered away himself by other guards.
The incident sent fans into a tizzy on Twitter, where one exclaimed: ‘I could watch this over and over. Taylor defending fans makes me so happy!!’
Another fan, whose Twitter bio included the phrase: ‘seeing taylor may 12 & 14,’ wrote: ‘security was really strict about keeping aisles clear during the show yesterday so i wouldn’t be surprised if she was yelling at security.’
Still another confessed: ‘i literally got scared when I was witnessing it on a random grainy 144p livestream on tiktok like what was happening.’

‘I would hate to be the security guy that got in trouble with her,’ quipped one, to which another Twitter user chimed in: ‘immediately fired for sure.’
Another wrote: ‘someone said she was yelling at a security for being too aggressive with a fan? the “stop, she wasn’t doing anything” makes sense then. if that’s true I think it is SO SWEET of her to be this attentive and defensive over the fans.’
And another said: ‘Oh that security guard messed up big time. Like REALLY messed up. she had to go back and really yell into her microphone for them to stop.
‘Do you know how much you have to mess up for taylor swift to do that in the middle of a song.’
Taylor’s stint in Philadelphia previously hit the headlines Friday night when she brought her rumored boyfriend Matty Healy onstage to open the concert.
Matty, a bad boy English rocker who used to be addicted to heroin, took the mic dressed in a skeleton suit and accompanied himself on the guitar.
At another point in the show, an eagle-eyed fan caught a glimpse of Matty in the crowd and took a brief video that was then posted to Twitter.

Standing near Matty in the audience was Taylor’s longtime pal Blake Lively, as well as another woman who appeared to be Sabrina Carpenter.
Matty’s appearance at Taylor’s show comes one day after they were caught ‘kissing’ and holding hands while on a romantic date in New York City on Thursday, May 11.
They were reportedly enjoying a double date at the celeb hot spot Casa Cipriani with Taylor’s songwriting collaborator Jack Antonoff and his fiancée Margaret Qualley.
Taylor is said to be on the rebound after the collapse of her romance with the smoldering British actor Joe Alwyn, whom she dated for six years.
Healy has been supporting the Anti-Hero singer at recent stops on her Eras Tour, which kicked off in March.
For their Thursday night date in the city, Swift looked elegant in a yellow sundress and wore her blonde hair in a low bun.
She was spotted strolling into the venue with a glass of wine in one hand while the other was seemingly interlocked with Healy’s.
The pop rocker looked effortlessly cool in all black and with a pair of sunglasses on his head of curly brown hair.
Page Six’s insider said that Swift, Healy, Antanoff and Qualley were all attending a banquette at the high-end hotel.

The outing comes days after Healy was spotted clapping and gyrating while attending the most recent gig in Taylor’s Eras Tour.
As per video captured by a Swift fan, the musician was dancing to her 2014 hit Shake It Off at the Nissan Stadium in Nashville.
Other ‘Swifties’ went wild as they spotted him wearing a T-shirt featuring the cover of her 1989 album, which he had been seen sporting in previous years.
Earlier this week, DailyMail.com exclusively obtained the first photos of Swift and Healy together in wake of the romance rumors.
The rumored couple were pictured arriving to Taylor’s condo at 12:30AM on Sunday morning following her Eras concert in Nashville, Tennessee.
They sat beside each other in the back of their chauffeured vehicle, where Matty was still wearing the same bracelet he sported earlier that evening while attending her concert alongside members of Taylor’s girl squad, Gigi Hadid and Lily Aldridge.
It was first reported last week that Matty and Taylor had planned to debut their romance by her bringing him up on stage to perform several songs at her Nashville shows.
Matty did perform during Saturday’s show with Taylor’s opening act but remained in the audience during the Mean singer’s stage time.
Who is Taylor Swift’s rumored new boyfriend Matty Healy?
Matty Healy is the lead singer of British band The 1975, who, as well as having battled heroin addiction, was expelled from school for fighting, smokes fat joints in interviews and is generally better known for sex and drugs than rock and roll.
Healy has a unique take on being famous, having grown up the child of famous — now divorced — parents.
His father Tim Healy is best known for his role in Auf Wiedersehen, Pet and his mother Denise Welch was famous when he was growing up for her role in Soldier Soldier.
She even had a (brief) singing career, releasing a single which nearly made the top 20. In 1997, she was cast in Coronation Street and the family moved from Northumberland to Manchester.
By this point, Welch was suffering from depression, and medicating with alcohol and drugs, although she has been clean for some time.
Healy met his The 1975 bandmates – Adam Hann, Ross MacDonald, and George Daniel – at Wilmslow High School in Cheshire, where they were all ‘misfits’.

They used to rehearse at Healy’s house — which was teeming with famous people, including Ringo Starr, Mark Knopfler, Rick Wakeman and AC/DC’s Brian Johnson (who happens to be his godfather).
He told an interviewer: ‘I’d be playing on a guitar in the house, not knowing it was the one from [Dire Straits’] Romeo And Juliet.’
One night, after hearing him play, prog rock legend Rick Wakeman pulled him to one side and told him he had ‘it’.
His father Tim told him once: ‘Music is in your bones. You’re the reincarnation of John Lennon. It’s in you.’
Despite the backing of his parents, the band struggled to get signed by a label.
Healy even toyed with an acting career, making a cameo in the BBC school drama Waterloo Road, in which his mother also starred.
The band released four EPs before releasing their debut self-titled album The 1975 in 2013, which topped the UK Albums Chart.
Following this success, they released four subsequent albums, have won four Brit awards and played Glastonbury three times.
He missed his mother’s wedding to artist Lincoln Townley in 2013 because the band were supporting the Rolling Stones on tour.

By the time he was 25, he was talking about having had a small heroin habit and a larger cocaine one before he was famous, and claimed that they have been overcome.
But in the summer of 2017, the rest of the band staged an intervention, and told him to go to rehab for booze, heroin and opiate use.
He flew to Barbados and spent eight weeks in rehab, which included equine therapy.
He said of his horse mentor: ‘I wanted to impress it more than any human being I’ve ever met. There were so many qualities I envied in this horse. And he had great hair.’
More recently, he has been living in West London and having a much quieter life. He has tried yoga, and swimming, and has been trying to get on top of the frequent migraines he suffers.
But, having fallen for the world’s most visible female pop star, that has all changed in the blink of an eye. The question is, to quote one of Taylor’s songs, are they Ready For It? Or will it be a swift ending?
