Taylor Swift reportedly fired one of her most popular backup dancers that she’s worked with since 2014.
The dancer, Toshi, was absent during her performance at BBC Radio’s Biggest Weekend in England recently. A source told the Daily Mail, “Taylor is livid and seriously disappointed with Toshi’s social media posts. She has considered him one of her closest friends on the road after recruiting him for her 1989 tour back in 2014. But she simply cannot endorse this behavior and to do so would be setting a bad example to her fans.”
In one of his Instagram Stories, he screenshot an article about Australia’s national women’s soccer team losing 7-0 to an under 15s boys’ side. He put a sticker underneath that read “Back to the Kitchen”. He continued to post more offensive content.
Many of Taylor’s fans caught screengrabs of Toshi’s Stories and posted them online. He has since switched his previously public account, ToshiAdventures, to private.
