I really hope taylor swift would post about supporting palestine and not “neutral” or “peace on both sides”. please @taylorswift13 do something you’re literally the biggest person on earth right now and your voice matters so much.— M Fachriza Arifin (@fachrizaalghani) October 31, 2023

@CommunityNotes @elonmusk Eran was the security liaison for the Stadium that Taylor performed at and not her personal bodyguard.
