Swastika Guy to Taylor: I'm Sorry!

10/29/2009 4:27 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Taylor & AJThe guy at the core of the Taylor Swift swastika scandal claims it's possible the singer did not see the Nazi symbol on his chest when he pulled her in for a photo the other night.

The shirt-bearer, AJ English, tells TMZ he didn't know Taylor before Katy Perry's party last weekend -- and he's sorry for dragging her into the chaos.

As for why he had a swastika on his shirt in the first place -- English says it started out as an "X" but was "perverted" as the night went on, adding he's "not a racist" and doesn't support the Nazi agenda.

So, he's just an idiot that made a very tasteless joke on his shirt. But good for him for taking the heat away from Taylor Swift who was probably dead-tired from taking pictures and possibly did not even see his shirt. It seems that it was a draw stuff on your clothes party.

So, he's the idiot. Blame him. But these people are young. Tell 'em why its not funny, hope they listen and move on.

EXCUSE ME??
Is she BLIND????
As for it starting out as an "X", why did he allow it to become and remain a swastika in the first place? Does this guy think we're all stupid? Easy enough to change it from that to something else. Get real!

The Swastika symbol has been used for thousands of years already in almost all human civilizations as a sign for good luck, protection, as a materialisation of life and the changing seasons of the year.

English is full of crap. The swastika didn't start off as a "X". It's pretty obvious in the pics that all of parts of the swastika were paint on at the same time. The paint nor the strokes are different as they would be if more was added the original X.

Swift is more than likely just stupid enough not to know what the symbol is.

For Christ's sake. Have none of you been to a party with drinking involved? Things f'n happen. If you read responsible news stories on this party you will find that it had to be shut down by authorities because cake throwing got out of hand. His story is totally believable.
