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.

It was a White Party,TO WEAR WHITE CLOTHES to ATTEND, KATY had paint at the party so guests could paint the White Clothes on each other and make them colorful,some guest painted the hate sign on this guy at the party ,he did not arrive at the party in it,then he asked Taylor for a photo-op thats all,,,,,How much MONEY has this guy made selling this photo of Taylor and the Hate Sign,It was a set up that this Guy did to make money selling a controversal picture,he could have posed with alot of stars that night,hidin the sign till the picture was taken for the photo-op,MAYBE hes looking for a REALITY SHOW

TMZ, you are lame. LOL. Do you REALLY think you can try and make Taylor a bad person? Nice try. Taylor won't tell someone "No, I won't take a picture with you". That's not how she is. She's too much of a sweetheart to tell someone she's not going to take a picture with them. If a fan wants a picture, she'll take it with them. You'll never get "dirt" on Taylor cause she doesn't have any to give you! Again, nice try. But very lame. Taylor isn't wearing the shirt, the other guy is. So you can't blame Taylor for taking a pic with him. It's not like she's actually wearing the shirt. Get a life.

How do you not know what this is?? Oh yeah maybe she thought it was a plus sign??? Why should she care. All she cares about is making money and pretty clothes. What a dumb b*tch.

The swastika is sacred to the Navajo.

As a German I must say, shouldn't the question be what that guy was thinking painting a swastika on his t-shirt?

Nazi-Symbols are no dress up for Halloween, show some respect dammit!

You ought to teach your kids that stuff at home if they don't learn it in school! YIKES

ok...seriously..you are NOT gonna bring Taylor down like y'all have done with the other teen scene stars. Taylor is a down to earth, sincere young lady and really deserves kudos for that. Did you learn nothing from the Kanye fiasco? sheesh!

THISISIT again MJ breaks records    

OIC..But how does she explain dancing with the dude. I saw many other pics on another site yesterday and she had ample time to see what was on his shirt.

Maybe if TMZ wasn't so transfixed by rich celebs getting jacked they would have seen all the pics yesterday.
