A contest featuring a meet and greet with country singer Taylor Swift had to be canceled after it was compromised and a 39-year-old creepy guy won. The ‘Taylor Swift’s Biggest Fan Contest’ was being run by KISS 108 FM in Boston. Members of 4chan hijacked the competition to help a friend named Charles win.
An anonymous user wrote to the community, “My creepy 39-year-old friend named Charles would like to crush all those girls’ dreams (and then sniff Taylor Swift’s hair cos he’s into that) by winning this instead. Help him crush the dreams of these girls and give him a chance to make a complete ass of himself by blatantly just sniffing her hair with the cameras rolling.”
It didn’t take long for Charles to shoot to the top of the leaderboard. Charles said on his profile, “I’m a 39-year-old man and I love Taylor so much and don’t care that both adults and children mock me for it.”
The radio station opted to pull the plug on the competition after they decided that it had been compromised. The station released the following statement with regard to the contest’s cancellation: “Disappointingly, we have determined that the integrity of the ‘Taylor Swift’s Biggest Fan’ contest has been compromised. In accordance with our contest rules, effective immediately, the contest has been terminated. We apologize to all of our loyal listeners who have participated.”
