Taylor Swift Embraces the Swastika

10/29/2009 1:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

UPDATE: Swift's rep just put together this swift explanation for TMZ, "Taylor took pictures with about 100 people that night ... she doesn't know who this guy is and she didn't realize what was on his shirt."

What the heil was Taylor Swift thinking?

Taylor Swift Embraces the Swastika

During Katy Perry's birthday party in West Hollywood last weekend, 19-year-old Swift put her arm around a guy wearing a Nazi swastika -- a symbol of hate, murder and evil -- and smiled for a photograph.

There are rumblings that the "JH" on Swift's shirt stands for "Jew Hater" -- but it seems more likely it stands for Julianne Hough due to the fact that Hough had a "TS" painted on her outfit ... most likely for Taylor Swift.

Why is no one talking about stupid "model boy"

Taylor wasn't wearing the shirt.

AJ Endlish is the one who should never get another gig in his life.

This was stupid of Swift. She'd have to be blind to miss that huge swastika. You can't even call what that racist was wearing a costume. Like it or not you're judged by the company you keep. Racists like that guy with her should be shunned not have taken pictures with.

First of all, a swastika is not a symbol of hate, it has been used as one but does not make every single swastika printed a meaning of hate, OK?

Flavor Flav and his group used to rap about a breeding black into the white race. "black man, white woman=black baby; black woman, white man=black baby" and I still have to look at that scrawny rat on my tv guide channel every night. Leave the girl alone. She could tatoo a hate symbol on her forehead and it's still noone's business but her own. People want to break her down for making a black dummy (Konyatuti, whatever) look like the moron he is. Rock on, white girl.

Please, people, there a lot of things right now to be concerned about. This was a bunch of "young" people at a party. Yes I know that it can be a BIG deal but in this case I think it was just some kids out having fun. She did nothing wrong. If you have a problem with it then talk about the person wearing it and leave her alone. People like to point out things about other people and forget to take a good look at their own lives and some of the things they have and are doing.

I am sorry, Taylor Swift, that you are now a victim of the idiots that make a big deal over nothing.

Come on, people, I am sure that if you were a celebrity taking hundreds of photos with hundreds of people in one night, you would not be looking at what is on their shirts.

TMZ the lowest of the low. So lame you can't even get a show at a good time. You gotta be on at like what..1 am EST...You guys are losers ok. Look If Taylor had refused this guy you'd be over her. So either way this would have turned out bad for her. She doesn't hate Jews come on. Just cause she takes a picture with one doesn't mean she is one...

I totally agree with poster number 14. and have proof in a museaum here in Hutchinson Ks. It meant rebirth and has been taken out of context by Hitler. Ok and don't fry me so is the confederiate flag. It doesn't represent slavery just a group of people who did not want other people taxing and telling them how to live. Northerns had slaves too.

Come on you guys. Taylor did nothing wrong. She just simply posed beside a guy, and I doubt she paid attention to his shirt. As for her letters on her shirt. If she showed up to the party with Julianne, who had TS on her shirt, I'm pretty sure, JH stood for her initials. They were trying to be cute. Its not fair that she should be looked at and criticized when she wasn't the one wearing Swastika. As a woman in her age range, the first thing I'm not going to think is, 'Ah I'm not taking a pic with you because you're wearing Swastika.' She was only simply being friendly and social at this party.

PS--NO ONE CARES WHAT A SWASTIKA MEANS IN ASIA OR WHEREVER. THIS PIC WAS TAKEN ON AMERICAN SOIL, AND IN AMERICA IT IS A SYMBOL OF HATE AND NEONAZISM. STOP DEFENDING HER BECAUSE SHE'S A CUTE WHITE GIRL AND YOU LIKE HER SONGS, WAKE UP AND SMELL THE FECES!!!!
