Taylor Swift Allegedly Fires Backup Dancer for Sexist Instagram Stories

Tay’s once-close friend was absent from her performance at BBC Radio’s Biggest Weekend on May 26 and the “Delicate” crooner is reportedly “livid” at him for his actions.
“Taylor is livid and seriously disappointed with Toshi’s social media posts,” a source tells Daily Mail. “She has considered him one of her closest friends on the road after recruiting him for her 1989 Tour back in 2014, but she simply cannot endorse this behavior and to do so would be setting a bad example to her fans.”
TS and Toshi used to be really tight, with the celeb donating $50,000 to his baby cousin who who was battling cancer back in 2015.
“Baby Ayden, I’m lucky enough to perform with your uncle Toshi on tour. All of us are praying for you and your mama and sending so much love your way. Love, Taylor,” she wrote on the baby’s GoFundMe page along with the donation.
