Fact check: Taylor Swift, Travis Kelce and the Super Bowl

There are countless conspiracy theories circulating online about US singer Taylor Swift. Since her relationship with Travis Kelce became public, many of these have been related to the NFL. DW fact checked three of them.

When the Kansas City Chiefs take to the field to defend their Super Bowl title against the San Francisco 49ers in Las Vegas on Sunday, pop megastar Taylor Swift is planning to be in the stands to cheer on her partner, Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce.

Since it became known that the two are a couple, there has been plenty of hype about Swift and her visits to Chiefs’ games. She’s expected at Sunday’s championship, but could be battling jet lag as she’s set to perform in Tokyo on Saturday night.

Their very public love affair has led some to make some rather dubious claims.

The short video clip posted on the social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter, which was viewed around 1 million times, has obviously been manipulated. We found the original video on TikTok using a reverse image search. It was posted in March 2023 and shows what the T-shirt really says: “Who is Taylor Swift anyway? Ew.”

Thousands of Swifties, as fans of the pop icon call themselves, already knew this because they had seen her wearing the T-shirt on stage during the Eras Tour, Swift’s sixth concert tour. Swift wears the T-shirt during “22,” a song about a night of partying. At one point, a voice from the background interjects: “Who is Taylor Swift anyway? Ew.”

However, the fake referring to the outcome of the AFC championship game may also seem plausible, as the Chiefs had little trouble with the Ravens in their 17-10 win. Couldn’t Swift have in fact worn a T-shirt with different wording at one of her concerts?

In addition to the original video, the fact that the timing doesn’t add up is another argument against this possibility. Swift put her concert tour on pause following a stop in South America at the end of November. It was only this week that she resumed her tour with concerts in Japan. However, the AFC championship game was played on January 28 and the video was posted on February 4.
