Taylor Swift Removes Moment Where Scale Says “Fat” From “Anti-Hero” Video
Some fans and viewers have called the moment “fatphobic.”
Taylor Swift's music video for “Anti-Hero” has been edited to remove a scene that originally showed the artist weighing herself with the scale display reading “fat,” a moment that some fans and viewers have called “fatphobic.”
The original video for the lead single of her 10th studio album, “Midnights,” angered some fans, but the artist says that it’s meant to portray her “nightmare scenarios and intrusive thoughts.”
Apple’s version of the video no longer shows the word, and as of Thursday, the YouTube version has also been replaced.
Swift has been open in the past about her experiences with an eating disorder and disordered eating. In the 2020 documentary “Miss Americana,” she admitted to starving herself when she received negative comments about her body.
