Taylor Swift fans are furious that X-rated, AI-generated images of the singer are making the rounds online. 

These pornographic images all feature Kansas City Chiefs themes, referencing Swift’s current boyfriend, NFL player Travis Kelce. The photos are called “deepfakes” and use artificial intelligence (AI) technology to create unauthorized images of Swift’s likeness.

This is not the first time Swift has been the target of people using her likeness without permission, but the images are causing a stir among fans due to the graphic nature of the imagery.

These AI images were first posted on the AI celebrity porn website Celeb Jihad on January 15, per Newsweek. They were shared on X so often this week that “Taylor Swift AI” began trending. Fans expressed their outrage over the incident and encouraged each other to keep reporting the posts, which were coming from several different accounts.

Some images were removed, but others remained accessible on Thursday, prompting fans to demand stricter laws and harsher punishments for using a person’s image without their permission.

“How is this not considered sexual assault??” one comment said. “We are talking about the body/face of a woman being used for something she probably would never allow/feel comfortable how are there no regulations laws preventing this.”


“Who ever (sic) is making those Taylor swift (sic) AI pictures you are a disgusting person,” another account added. 

Other users fretted that these images of Swift are only the beginning.

“I’m not going to share that Taylor Swift AI sickening ‘sexy’ post. But know that all it takes is one button click for any of us or our friends, family or children to be used in that way without our consent. Fight AI now before it’s too late,” one user shared.

“With the Taylor Swift Ai pics I think it’s clear that we need some kinda legislation or something against this sh**. It’s easy to tell it’s Ai right now because it’s mainly used for ridiculous sh**, but it’s just gonna get harder and harder to tell with time. F***ing bleak,” another X user added. 

The use of AI has been a hot-button issue for several years and was at the center of the Hollywood strikes last year. Celebrities are frequently targeted for AI videos and images, usually for the creation of fake ads or other promotions.
