1 minute, 30 seconds Read

The Taylor Swift-Travis Kelce couple has been making headlines for months, creating a buzz in the media. On one hand, Taylor Swift, the wealthy pop star, known for filling stadiums, breaking records, and associating with Hollywood celebrities while still maintaining a simple image. On the other hand, Travis Kelce, the charismatic American football player for the Kansas City Chiefs, is known for his playful persona and “good guy” image.

Their highly publicized romance has been portrayed as so perfect that it could serve as the plot for a romantic comedy. However, skeptics and right-wing personalities have started propagating a conspiracy theory with increasing creativity, suggesting that their relationship and even the upcoming Super Bowl in which Travis Kelce’s team is participating are somehow rigged to benefit the outgoing president. Some have gone as far as predicting a major announcement of support for a presidential candidate from the couple, orchestrated as part of an alleged election interference operation.

The spread of such theories has also led to derogatory remarks directed at Travis Kelce, including labeling him “Mr. Pfizer” due to his promotion of the Covid vaccine produced by the pharmaceutical company. Similarly, Taylor Swift, despite having a large following of fans in the U.S. and around the world, has faced resentment and even hostility from some on the right, especially after publicly endorsing Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election. As a public figure, she has the ability to mobilize and influence young voters, particularly young women.

Additionally, her advocacy for LGBT+ rights and opposition to Supreme Court decisions has sparked rumors and conspiracy theories about her, ranging from being a Pentagon pawn to practicing dark magic during her concerts. These speculations and theories have mirrored the digital age’s ability to give a platform to such claims while revealing the polarization within American society.
