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.

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.

That may be you stupid ignorant racist...but the Nazi's made it a hateful symbol which we all reconize as The Nazi Party....4 million jew were killed and if this is any way to honor them..thens its as pathetic as this idiot hiding behind George Jeffersons name....But at the same time if it was a noose on his shirt every black person would be crying racism. So why can't the jewish people.

I am saddened by all the people who think that this is "nothing" and doesn't mean anything. What is wrong with you people?
How do you think Hitler got started? How do you think he ended up with the power he had?
Because too many people sloughed off his rants and his prejudices as "nothing" and "meaningless"! Before they knew it, Hitler was in control and began to kill those who spoke against him. Then he began to proceed with his "racial cleansing". Think about that.
Too many of our young today have no clue what these things mean and stand for. We need to educate them before it's too late.
And before you scoff at me and tell me I'm blowing this out of proportion, hear this:
Those who do not remember the past are doomed to repeat it.

Like I said on the other post:

Please leave her alone! She is just young and naive! Don't start this crap with her already!

She will learn as she grows up. We all have things to learn, including her. I did a bunch of dumb ass crap when I was 19 in the name of fun! Let’s give her a break. Not that I like Nazis, but I’m sure she probably didn’t pay any attention to that stupid, dumb, hateful, demonic sign on that boy’s shirt. The idiot that is wearing it probably don’t even know what that sign stands for!

Taylor, don't do this again, honey! Learn from it and move on! Fame Sucks! Doesn’t it?


God bless you as you grow into a woman, Taylor.

Obama is a Socialist!    

Has anyone else noticed that Taylor has "JH" written on her dress?

Since she is standing with a swastika, I am guessing it stands for "Jew Hater"

OK For those of you who keep saying that the swastika is a "good" symbol. You're only partly right.
It has been perverted and regardless of what it HAD been, it matters what it is NOW and how it appears to the western world.
It ORIGINALLY stood for good and was a symbol of good luck. But we in the western world all know now what it stands for.
Please remember that. Anyone in the western world who appears with that on their shirt is at best a tasteless jerk, at worst a slimy racist.
