Taylor Swift Tossed Hundreds Of Unopened Fanmail Letters In The Trash?!

taylor swift unopened fan mail nashville dumpster

Uh oh! Sounds like Taylor Swift might’ve just found herself in some deep Trouble… trouble, trouble!

Over the weekend, a woman discovered HUNDREDS of unopened letters addressed to Swifty in a Nashville dumpster!

The unread pile of fanmail was found by Nashville resident, Kylee Francescan, who stated:

"I was like, ‘That's weird.’ There were like hundreds of letters in there to Taylor Swift and I'm like, ‘Oh my gosh!' I didn't know if they were stolen [or] discarded, so I threw them in a box. And I'm like, ‘Somebody needs to let Taylor know.'"

So just what could’ve happened??? Taylor couldn’t possibly have had her team throw away messages from her loyal and devoted fans, could she?!

Well, it seems that although the mail was addressed to Taylor Swift Entertainment, it somehow got from the P.O. box to the dumpster!

Reportedly, Taylor’s team DOES check the P.O. box pretty regularly, and once they were made aware of the situation, her record company said they were unsure as to why the letters ended up in the trash!

Taylor’s spokesperson, Paula Erickson, said:

"Taylor gets thousands of fan letters everyday and they are delivered to her management office. After the letters are opened and read, they are recycled. The only explanation for any letters being unopened would be that a small batch of mail that was supposed to be delivered to Taylor was accidentally put with letters headed for the recycling center.”

Paula then went on to say that they would “immediately pick up the mail” and that they’re glad the matter was brought to their attention!

Phew! We’re sure hundreds of Swifties can sleep soundly tonight knowing that their letters weren’t just tossed in the trash!

At least, we REALLY hope that wasn’t the case!

    While this may have been an error on the part of one of 'her people', the artist is ultimately responsible for what happens around them. It's not really surprising - Taylor Swift's handlers have always been about 'quantity' over 'quality'. Get as many fans as you can and take their money, but don't treat them decently. They are going to explain this away as an oversight, mistake, blah blah blah …

    Bullshit. No one reads thousands of fan letters daily. Obv they throw them out.



  3. 3

    And she lied to Vanity Fair. Shouldn't mess with those who buy ink by the barrel!

    Sounds like she needs to fire her assistant and get one who isn't too lazy to open the mail.

    Anyone who thinks artists read their fan mail personally is delusional. I actually had a job reading and sorting fan mail for a country artist in high school. It's pretty common around here, my other friends who worked for different management agencies and I would sit around with our plastic mail bins and sort mail on Friday or Saturday nights. (I live just outside of Nashville). We opened them and definitely threw most of them away.

    I don't know why I find this funny. Hopefully the woman who didn't find them open her mail.



  7. 7

    White trash

    No way. They were addressed to Hendersonville and ended up in an Elementary School dumpster in Brentwood…in my neighborhood. These weren't thrown away accidentally at a recycling facility, they were DUMPED at an elementary school purposely. Who knows how many times a box of letters has been dumped there…this is just the first box that was detected…I can bet it won't happen again! This were purposely discarded, thinking otherwise is just naive.

    OMG…I Wrote To Her….Asking For Dating Advice…LOL

    well… even if these letters were put "mistaken" they would've reached their destination center which would be the recycling center not a random dumpster in Nashville.

    Actually its not bulshit. They does read them . And they send people response.

  12. free says – reply to this


    12

    So the proper way to deal with these fan letters is to first get them out of their envelopes and then 'recycle' them?



  13. 13

    What celebrity is gonna bother to read every one of those fan letters anyways?



  14. 14

    And why are people fans of her stupid white asian self who just sings songs about her ex's?????
    Only a dumb white moron.

    But it was all a mistake! A terrible, terrible mistake.

    Of course Taylor did not throw them away but whoever was hired to open and respond to the fan mail got lazy and decided to dump them . Someone is going to be fired Im sure. We all know that a star of her magnitude could not possibly read her mail so someone is hired to do it. Im sure this happens more than we will ever know

    Re: Snow Glow – How did she lie to Vanity Fair ?I dont think so.



  20. 20

    Not a big deal. Now if it was Santa, well then that would be HORRIBLE!!!!!!!!!

  21. Dan85 says – reply to this


    21

    I dont believe that anyone would open thousands of letters a day. There is no way. If they do dispose of them, they should at least be shredded.

  22. heartofdixie67 says – reply to this


    22

    She should at the very least use the fan mail as a fuel source and heat her home !!!



  23. 23

    Re: shelby – She lied about purchasing a home in Hyannis Port, near her then boyfriend. She thought if she wasn't spotted at the house, and it wasn't in her name, she could get away with saying she didn't purchase it, but she did. Not a really big deal to admit, but she LIED.

  24. hmm ok says – reply to this


    24

    So they dump the "recycled letters" in a dumpster. Okkk…



  25. 25

    Where in the law does it say that just because someone has fans, she/he HAS to read their fan mail?? If Anyone would be doing that, they'd never have a carreer or life for that matter, they'd just be reading fan mail 24/7. So she (more likely her team) chucked a few letters (that should've been shredded before tossed, Taylor, if you're reading this, let me know if you need someone new to manage your below-average team of dunces to handle things like this in the future), big deal.

    26

    dang it ….. I was wondering why my request for some Taylor pubics was unanswered . I was sure looking forward to receiving a big box of Swifty fur .. gonna sniff it all night long, yeaaaaaaaa baby



  27. 27

    This is not unusual in most fandoms. What makes it "special" in Taylor's case is because she is the one always talking about how much she loves her fans, and how much all their letters mean to her, and she is the one who said she "tries to read as many as possible." Taylor herself has promoted this fiction of a special connection to her fans.

    So when we find them unopened and dumped, you know that is the normal procedure. The collect the fan mail and dump it. That PO Box is the give away. "Fan mail" goes to one letter box, and "real mail" goes to another address. I don't expect celebrities to read the thousands of fan letters they get. But I hate it when a fake like Taylor gushes about her fans and pretends she has this "connection" with them and then does something like this in a sneaky way.



  28. 28

    She obviously isnt perfect but who the hell has the time to read all them letters? must be a ton of fan stuff that literally gets dumped by every big celebrity.

  29. James says – reply to this

    Comon' yall! You wouldn't read them all either. Its great they are sent and I am sure she appreciates them…but it's just too dang much to read. They all start sounding the same anyways…get a life and just appreciate the music.

    And? A lot of them don't bother t read over 1,000 letters they get I am sure weekly.

    Ya'll are forgetting the most important aspect here… and that is how MUCH the Post Office has made for that mail. So our rates will soon come down !! LOL

    32

    It's insane to throw unread fan mail away. I've had some incredible lyrics given to me by people who love and believe in me enough to "drop me a line". Here, this just popped into my head and I thought it would fit you. There.. "Drop me a line" coming to a country song in 8 months.

    33

    Damn! I sent her a proposal to marry me and I'm sure she would have taken me up on it since I'm only 15 years old!



  34. 34

    Re: hvegas – Wow that is kind of rude, at least do the job you were paid to do, and if you cannot send them a personal letter then try to develop a form letter that can be somewhat personalized.

  35. sal says – reply to this


    35

    They had what's coming to them, what idiot would send fan mail knowing that a celebrity or his/her does not have the time to read those thousands of letter. Besides, what do they write about? How much they adore the celebrity? What a waste of trees.

    How far is it from Hendersonville where the fan mail is delivered to an elementary school dumpster in Brentwood? Pretty far! And discovered the day before the Red Tour kicks off? And the young woman takes them to the television station instead of to the address on the envelope? I'm smelling a rat from another recording label. . . .

  41. Emily says – reply to this


    41

    sweetie, clearly you havent worked in Hollywood…the "artist" of any kind cannot humanly control every little act on a daily basis from "her people" Im sure this saddens her as she tries her best to please her fans on a daily basis. Mistakes happen and people learn no matter who you are!

    I use to work with Taylor Swift on one of her products and she is a B****. She literally stomped on the ground like a 6 year old because she didn't want to do something and then pumped up the charm when she went out to her fans…this whole good-girl act will wear off soon



  48. 48

    Re: Sherilyn – You're an idiot. Just because you employ someone does not mean you can control their actions, and it definitely doesn't mean you should be responsible for their actions. Let's say you employed me, then i decided to lose my temper at a customer and hit them. Using your logic, you would be responsible. When it's pretty far-fetched. You had ZERO control over me or my actions.

    I don't care. I just don't care. How much to I just don't care? taylor goat/frog swift videos don't care.



  50. 50

    Odd that they were discarded in a random dumpster. But of course, there's no way you can expect her to read the mail. In grade school we had to write letters to people we admired and only very very few kids in my class got a response (usually a "thank you" with an autographed photo).



  51. 51

    But I don't know why she doesn't have someone who can at least open them and see if there's anything she'd be interested in reading. She treats her team like shit though, I know someone who worked for her and quit.

    I'd love to toss her into the trash and put the lid on it.May her 15 minutes be over soon for this whiner

    I'm calling Horse Crap on this one. Sept 23, 2010 Swift performed with Lionel Ritchie, Emmylou Harris, Vince Gill, and Kris Kristofferson at an All for the Hall benefit concert in LA. I was working security and after the concert we found fan mail in the garbage in her dressing that fans had mailed to the venue and were left for her to read.

    56

    What is up with all of you Taylor Swift haters out there? This week she gets personally blamed for throwing fan letters away. A couple of weeks ago she got personally blamed for a snafu regarding a canceled concert. Do you honestly think she handles every aspect of business? Like most businesses, she hires employees. I can't believe how jealous and petty some people are that they hate this girl so much. Get a life!

    Once these artists hit the bigtime they only care about your money. At least act you love all your fans even the creepy ones and don't throw any fanmail away.

    Taylor is just a bunch of crap she is a total phony and needs to learn to GROW UP she loves to hurt people with her music and sound like shes perfect she breaks people with what she does and with the fan mail it is important for a person ANY person to be careful with what they are doing because when someone finds out the people you love will know and they will go behind your back and hurt you and in Taylor's case her fans wont care anymore because of he lies to the public and her simple statements in her songs like in her song 22 " making fun of our exes" is just a simple way of saying " i don't care about your feelings and i will do whatever crap i want " in my personal opinion i think she is just a bunch of bullshit and needs to fuckkin GROW UP!!!!!!

    You do realise the fan mail didn't even go to taylor. She obviously didn't throw them out she doesn't have time to. They get kept in her management office. Whether they threw it out idk but she definitely did not

    Taylor has now thrown away little kids letters and she is such a fake, whore and what next. She is being sued also. I cannot stand this girl.

  62. Oops says – reply to this


    62

    Who really thinks that she is reading all of those letters? I don't. I think she trashed them or one of her "people" (the one responsible for skimming and responding) just tossed them.

    66

    First off all, the address in the fan mails are not actually is the address of her condo in Nashville, so I think it's been send to wrong addresses in the US, that's why she didn't read it, but accusing her of something bad is very wrong, she's a busy person, so get a life and stop accusing her of lie's

    Omg that is so disaponting ! I love Taylor and she throws away all her fans fan mail ! If i was famous i would read every single one and reply to them :) Im SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Mad !

    Re: Snow Glow – She absolutely admitted to purchasing the house, stating that one of the Kennedy's had given her a heads up that it was a great property to purchase, fix up, and resell… which is exactly what she did, making a cool $1 million. Get your facts straight.



  69. 69

    At least pay someone to open all that mail to make it look like you care about the fans that made you rich.



  70. 70

    So, one of the people she pays to read her fan mail decided they would fucking lose their mind is they had to read one more fan letter that sounds like EVERY OTHER fucking fan letter and they dumped them. They still wanted the paycheck, just didn't want to do their job. Slimy, but kinda understandable

  71. Sam says – reply to this


    71

    She couldn't possibly read them all… And she does reply to people and is amazing to her fans! She has a puzzle my friends and I made hanging in her house!! She does her best! She invited fans for dinner at her house! how many famous people do that??? So she got rid of a few letters! It's the idiot who found thems fault… Who goes through garbage! She's the one upsetting fans because she wanted 2 seconds of fame by being the one that found them! Honestly people just love to bring people down when they are sucessful and now it has become "cool " to hate on Taylor when she isn't actually doing anything wrong! Get over it!

  72. Sharkie says – reply to this


    72

    Do you guys honestly think ANY celebrity reads their fan mail? No. Taylor probably has a secretary that reads the fan mail, because Taylor is a very busy person, and unless there's an extra special letter the secretary thinks Taylor should see, most of them are read and recycled. Most likely, the secretary got lazy and didn't want to read the mail, so he/she dumped it.

    Taylor would NEVER ever ever do that(we r never getting back together) even if she did( which she didn't) I think that a fan or someone would notice quicker I hate when people are mean and rude to Taylor because this is a lie! And that pic at the top? For heavens sake editing! Plz leave her alone already! Geez
