When Taylor Swift announced that Papa John’s and Chegg were sponsoring a contest on Facebook for any school to win $10,000 for their music department and a performance from her, the fuckery makers at 4Chan and Reddit trolled her hard by voting for The Horace Mann School for the Deaf in Allston, Massachusetts. The Horace Mann School got thousands upon thousands of votes and it was looking like the kids were going to feel their ears tingle and sting as Taylor Swift yodeled out her signature Kennedy mating call in the lunch room. The headmaster of the school said at the time that his students love music and he hopes they win the contest. Well, guess what? They were disqualified!
Boston.com says that Taylor, Papa John’s and Chegg all decided to take Horace Mann out of the running because of the way the school got their votes. But the Illuminati didn’t send Taylor Swift a “welcome to the dark side” gift basket for making deaf children cry, because she donated $10,000 of her own money to The Horace Mann School. Cover Girl, American Greetings and the contest’s two sponsors also donated $10,000 each, so the school is getting a total of $50,000. Each student will also get tickets to Taylor’s show the next time she performs near their town.
The internet’s trolling pays off again. Everybody wins. Taylor wins, because she looks like a damn saint. And the kids really win, because their school got $50,000, they don’t have to sit through a Taylor Swift show in their cafeteria and they got tickets they can sell on Craigslist.
