The Reputation singer is raising eyebrows about a recent revelation that happened to concert goers during one of her stops on tour.
The Rolling Stones reports that on May 18th, during her show at the Rose Bowl in California, The stadium had monitors with rehearsal footage playing at the security entrance. As all fans were mesmerized by the footage of the pop icon, they were also having their faces scanned.
"A facial-recognition camera inside the display was taking their photos. " reported by Steve Knopper from the rolling stones."The images were being transferred to a Nashville “command post,” where they were cross-referenced with a database of hundreds of the pop star’s known stalkers".
Creepy, but can you really blame her???
Taylor Swift has been the victim of Stalkers in recent past. As the Independent reports, 22 year old Roger Alvarado, broke into Taylor Swift's townehome in NYC, took a shower and took a nap. He was just sentenced to 6 months in jail, under the chargers of 'stalking, burglary, criminal mischief and trespassing'. That also wasn't his first time targeting Swift. In fact, earlier this year he was arrested for attempting to break down her door with a shovel.
Due to privacy concerns the legality of all of this is still in question on whether Swift and concert venues can actually perform this service.
As of 6:41 a.m. on December 13th, 2018 Taylor Swifts Reps have yet to comment on this concern.
Whitney and I both attended Taylor Swift's Reputation Tour at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, MO. I do not remember seeing any non traditional camera software besides the standard security system.
What do you think of this situation?
Do you feel Taylor Swift and the stadium are justified in this approach to security?
Do you feel as though it is a breach of privacy?
Are you somewhere in between?
