Taylor Swift - Taylor Swift Victim Of Competition Prank

Taylor Swift has fallen victim to another online prank after jokers swayed a web vote to help a 39-year-old man win a competition to meet the singer.

The Love Story hitmaker hosted a web contest with Massachusetts radio station Kiss 108 Fm offering one lucky fan the chance to meet their idol.

However, the competition was axed after users of 4chan.org and Reddit.com teamed up to sway the voting in favour of a 39-year-old entrant named only as Charles Z, described as a "creepy 39 year old (who) would like to crush all those little girls (sic) dreams".

A statement from radio station bosses reads, "Disappointingly, we have determined that the integrity of the Taylor Swift's Biggest Fan contest has been compromised. In accordance with our contest rules, effective immediately, the contest has been terminated. We apologise to all of our loyal listeners who have participated."

Swift was previously targeted in a similar scheme when pranksters tried to rig a competition offering a performance from the star at a school. The contest's rules were rejigged after jokers swayed the votes in favour of sending her to sing for deaf students.
