Taylor Swift 'considering legal action' over AI deepfake nudes

An insider has claimed Taylor Swift's team is 'considering legal action' over the recent AI deepfake nudes of the singer

Taylor Swift is said to be 'considering legal action' after she became the latest victim of deepfake pornography.

A voice or video deepfake is a non-consensual media created via Artificial Intelligence (AI) using a text prompt.

According to a recent report, around 500,000 were shared across social media last year, and it’s claimed that deepfake crime is on the rise.

And with that on the rise, more and more celebrities seem to be getting dragged into this controversial world.

Swift became the latest victim after a user created sexualised AI-generated photographs of her at a Kansas City Chiefs game.

These NFL-inspired fabricated porn pictures have been shared across various websites.

On Monday (January 22), the latter allegedly took down an X (formerly Twitter) post sharing the fake images because it violated the social media platform's guidelines.

According to Newsweek, another user posted the AI-generated images to their social media account and wrote: "My Taylor post went viral and now everyone is posting it."

In a separate update, he allegedly typed: "Bro, what have I done? They might pass new laws because of my Taylor Swift post. "

"If Netflix did a documentary about AI pics they'd put me in it as a villain. It's never been so over."

The outlet reports that this user's tweets have since been protected, and only those who follow him may see further updates.

Many Swifties flocked to X to defend the 'Bad Blood' singer and call for immediate action to be taken.

"The Taylor Swift AI images are insane. Actually terrifying that they exist," one user typed.

A second wrote: "If the Taylor Swift AI photos come up on your feed and you care about protecting women AT ALL - please report the post. If you don’t grasp the depravity - seek a therapist."

While a third called the images 'disgusting', adding: "Please PROTECT TAYLOR SWIFT."

Well, it appears legal action may be on the cards, according to a source close to Swift.

"Whether or not legal action will be taken is being decided, but there is one thing that is clear: These fake, AI-generated images are abusive, offensive, exploitative and done without Taylor’s consent and/or knowledge," an insider told the Daily Mail on Thursday.

"The Twitter account that posted them does not exist anymore. It is shocking that the social media platform even let them be up to begin with."

The report states that Swift's family and friends are also 'furious'.

“Legislation needs to be passed to prevent this, and laws must be enacted,” the insider added.

Swift is yet to publicly address the deepfake.

UNILAD has reached out to her representatives for comment.
