Royal expert Omid Scobie faces a backlash from Taylor Swift's dedicated fanbase, known as Swifties, over claims made in his latest book, 'Endgame,' suggesting that Swift declined an invitation to perform at King Charles' coronation in May.
However, fans swiftly debunked the assertion, highlighting Swift's ongoing Eras Tour on the specified date.
Scobie alleged that Taylor Swift turned down an invitation to perform at the coronation, but fans pointed out that she had a scheduled concert in Nashville on the same night, making the claim implausible.
Angry Swifties took to social media to call out the apparent misinformation.
One fan noted, "Look at this utterly shameless lying. Taylor Swift was in the middle of her Eras Tour - I was at the Nashville show the night of the Coronation."
Another criticized Scobie's credibility, stating, "Calling Omid Scobie a Royal Expert is laughable and a bit of a stretch. He is more Harry and Meghan's mouthpiece, and it was proven in court."
Swifties also highlighted Scobie's omission of Taylor Swift declining Meghan Markle's podcast request in his book.
When questioned about the accuracy of his claims, Scobie mentioned that other artists also turned down coronation invites, but this response did little to appease Swifties.
The fanbase, known for fiercely defending Taylor Swift, swarmed the publisher's social media platforms, demanding corrections and questioning Scobie's credibility.
One fan warned that the author had stirred the wrath of the formidable Swifties, stating, "He really doesn't want to start with Taylor. He thought the Royal Family was tough. He hasn't seen what enraged Swifties can do."
