Nothing goes better with Taylor Swift’s new album than a little snitch. At least, that’s what the FBI’s Washington Field wants you to think, based on a file last tweet I took out the organization.
Taking signals at the right time Speak now (Taylor version), The FBI shared a photo on Monday that appears to mock Miss Swift’s latest release, featuring a fake track listing in shades of purple reminiscent of the album art. But these so-called “tracks” have some interesting titles: “Terrorism (FBI Version)”, “Cybercrime (FBI Version),” and “Weapons of Mass Destruction (FBI Version)”, to name a few. inventory.
“Justice is better than revenge. You may not be Superman, but you can help the #FBI protect the country,” the caption asking readers to “speak now” if they had information about a crime before it was closed was grafted with the organization’s contact information.
This is the latest example of Swiftisms penetrating into the legal realm, a trend that likely began in January when Sens. Amy Klobuchar and Mike Lee worked agonizingly over some of her words in their testimony at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Ticketmaster. Since then, Glendale, Arizona has been temporarily renamed “Swift City”; Swift briefly served as mayor of Tampa; Brazilian lawmakers proposed what they called the “Taylor Swift Law” in response to the scandalous ticket skinning.
See the FBI’s tweet below.
Meanwhile, Swift recently expanded her epic “The Eras Tour” with new international dates that extend through 2024 (get tickets here).
