Thanks to some internet pranksters, Taylor Swift is in the midst of getting the Pitbull treatment in an online poll. Swift has teamed up up with Papa John’s so that fans (read: anyone on the internet) can vote to send the country star to perform at any school campus in the nation. The school with the most votes right now? The Horace Mann School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing in Massachusetts.
See, the internet trolls will tell you it’s “hilarious,” because those students won’t be able to hear Taylor’s “terrible” music. It’s one thing to punk Pitbull and send him to a remote outpost in Alaska, but this is just a jerk move that makes a very lame Taylor Swift joke at the expense of deaf students who actually can enjoy musical performances (via bass vibrations, the spectacle, etc).
Voting is still open through September 23, so the outcome isn’t locked up yet, but you know what? We hope Horace Mann wins, because the school would get the performance and a $10,000 grant for its music department.
