In her most recent Eras Tour concert, Taylor Swift rushed to a fan’s defense against a security guard who kept harassing and shouting at her. The fan Kelly Inglis, who is also a mom-of-one, appears to be a zealous Swiftie which was clearly a little too much for the security guard to handle. However, her idol unexpectedly came to her rescue and made sure she was able to enjoy the concert undisturbed.

The 33-year-old singer stopped her performance a few times to shout into the crowd. While it remains unclear what happened below the stage, it seems that the security guard was aggressive with the fan. The video of the encounter between Taylor Swift, her fan Kelly and the security guard has gone viral on social media. The incident happened during the second night of Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour stop at Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field.

Exploring the Taylor Swift vs Security Guard incident

During Taylor Swift’s concert in Philadelphia, the security guard fiasco took place during her performance of Bad Blood. She interrupted her singing multiple times to address the confrontation. 

While there were many cameras recording, the actual on-ground footage is still not unavailable. However, the video of Taylor Swift shouting at the security guard has garnered millions of views. 

In the video clip circulating on Twitter, Swift can be heard assuring security that the fan is harmless and demanding them to stop their actions. Following her intervention, she promptly resumes singing and dancing.

Eyewitnesses suggest that the fan was too close to a barricade. Some believe that she was taking photos too close to Taylor. Regardless, the singer’s decision to intervene during a live performance has taken people aback. 

Who is the Taylor Swift fan, Kelly Inglis?

Following harassment from the security guard, Kelly Inglis has shared that she has been offered complimentary tickets for the next Taylor Swift show. The Eras Tour show marked Kelly’s 13th time attending the pop star’s concert. She considered it to be her lucky charm since the event fell on May 13, which is known to be the pop star’s lucky number

Kelly said she felt astonished when the singer herself came to her defense. Following the incident, the guard was escorted out of the venue. Later, stadium officials approached Kelly and her sister, offering them free tickets to the upcoming concert on Sunday.

The diehard Swiftie claims she was simply dancing and having fun. However, the security guard started behaving irrationally and yelling at them. He particularly objected to them taking photos near the stage.

Social media users react to the incident

Taylor Swift’s representatives have not provided any comments regarding the incident. Swifties praised the singer for being attentive to her beloved audience. 

However, some netizens believe that performers should not question security matters during a show. Nonetheless, her actions quickly gained attention and support from her international fan base.
