Taylor Swift Reportedly Fires Backup Dancer In Response To Sexist Instagram Posts
"She simply cannot endorse this behaviour and to do so would be setting a bad example to her fans."
Taylor Swift has reportedly dismissed one of her back-up dancers after he posted a series of offensive and sexist messages on social-media.
The singer noticeably didn’t involve longtime friend Toshi during her performance at BBC Radio’s Biggest Weekend on Sunday, which comes days after fans criticised the derogotary material posted on his Instagram feed.

The messages included a screenshot of a MailOnline article about Australia’s national women’s football team losing to an under 15’s all boys side. He is said to have captioned the shot: “Back to the kitchen.”
Another upload reportedly featured an image of a cloth, a bottle of Choloform, a black van and a shot of some deserted woods alongside the comment: “Every girls weakness.”
“[Taylor] has considered him one of her closest friends on the road after recruiting him for her 1989 tour back in 2014," a source told Daily Mail. "But she simply cannot endorse this behaviour and to do so would be setting a bad example to her fans."
Back in September 2015, Taylor donated $50,000 to help Toshi’s poorly nephew Ayden Brown – who died in Novemeber 2017 at the age of three.
At the time, she wrote on his GoFundMe page: “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.”
The dancer’s Instagram account - which has 76.9k followers - has since been switched to private mode.
