‘Small artist’ claims Taylor Swift plagiarized her idea for Era's tour set

Anne Marie Tendler spoke about the singer's tour set

An artist has taken to social media to claim that Taylor Swift plagiarized her creative ideas for the Era's tour set.

In a now-deleted TikTok video, the artist, Anna Marie Tendler, alleged that the American singer-songwriter's aesthetic looked 'strikingly' like some of her work.

The 'small artist' revealed that she doesn't know how to handle the supposed plagiarism going forwards.

See what she had to say here:

Tendler, who is also John Mulaney's ex-wife, took to TikTok to share with her followers how she felt about the 'Bad Blood' singer's set design.

She starts off the short video showing crowd-filmed footage from Swift's Era's tour in which the singer can be seen in an orange dress as she tidies away a kitchen table.

"Taylor, my girl," the artist begins.


Extending her response, Tendler adds: "People who designed Taylor's tour: this tolerated setup looks strikingly like one of my photographs in tone and in aesthetics."

She continued: "It doesn't totally feel like parallel thinking to me."

"I'm a small artist, independent artist who's trying to make money and live off of my artwork," she told viewers.

Tendler then ended the response video admitting: "I don't know what to do about this, and maybe somebody can help me."


While the video has since been deleted from the platform, many have already caught light of it and didn't hold back their reactions to the claim.

The clip resurfaced on Reddit yesterday (18 March) and hundreds of die-hard Swifties have since weighed in on the matter.

One wrote: "That was a hard watch ngl."

"I felt so much cringey second hand embarrassment for her," a second wrote.

And a third added: "As soon as she said 'ehhhhhhhhh' I clicked out."

"This is such a reach," a fourth stated, with a fifth adding: "It’s such a common concept it’s literally so cringe for her to say this."

However, one Reddit user pointed out that the whole thing may not be totally as it seems.


They explained: "Apparently Anna’s video was supposed to be a joke but v obviously did not land lol," attaching a screenshot of the artist's comment.

Tendler's comment read: "Hi! This was meant to be a joke.

"Most of my videos are jokes or satire! When I realised it wasn't landing as a joke i deleted it."

"Didn't mean offence [sic]," the artist concluded.

UNILAD has reached out to both a rep from Taylor Swift's team and Anna Marie Tendler.
