Taylor Swift’s fans received some shocking news when it was revealed that a bundle of letters addressed to the Grammy Award winner were found in a dumpster.
According to WKRN, the unopened letters were found in a dumpster at Granberry School in Nashville. Kylee Francescan, a local resident, found the unopened letters. She explains, “I was like, ‘That's weird.’ There were like hundreds of letters in there to Taylor Swift and I'm like, ‘Oh my gosh!' I didn't know if they were stolen [or] discarded, so I threw them in a box. And I'm like, ‘Somebody needs to let Taylor know.'”
Francescan says she alerted News 2, as she thought the “Red” singer would want to know that many of her fans letters were not getting to her.
“It did bother me [because] I know how much her fans mean to her," she adds.
Following the news of the discarded letters, Paula Erikson, a rep for Swift’s team, responded to the report. "Taylor gets thousands of fan letters everyday and they are delivered to her management office. After the letters are opened and read, they are recycled.”
"The only explanation for any letters being unopened would be that a small batch of mail that was supposed to be delivered to Taylor was accidentally put with letters headed for the recycling center,” Erickson continued. “We sincerely appreciate Channel 2 bringing this to our attention, and we plan to immediately pick up the mail."
Swift has not commented on the discarded fan mail. She is currently prepping to kick off her Red tour which begins tonight. Swift tweeted, “The 22 video premieres AND the Red Tour starts on Wednesday! Yes, that's the 13th. Yes, that's on purpose.”
