Taylor Swift photos on social media are fake. Some fans resist. 

NEW YORK (AP) — Online pornographic deepfake photos of Taylor Swift are making the singer the most well-known casualty. 

Of a problem that internet companies and anti-abuse organizations have been unable to effectively address. 

This week, phony photos of Swift that were violent and sexually explicit started to go viral on the social media site X. 

Her devoted "Swifties" fan following swiftly rose to the occasion, mounting a counteroffensive ,

on the now-defunct Twitter and flooding the feed with more favorable photos of the pop sensation with the hashtag #ProtectTaylorSwift. 

A few claimed to be reporting accounts that disseminated deepfakes. 

The organization Reality Defender, which detects deepfakes, claimed to have tracked a ton of nonconsensual pornography that features Swift, especially on X.

A few photos also appeared on Facebook, which is owned by Meta, and other social media sites.
