Sexually explicit AI-generated images of Taylor Swift have been circulating on X (formerly Twitter) for the past day, the latest example of the spread of AI-generated fake pornography and the challenge of stopping it from spreading.

One of the most prominent examples on was given. The post was live on the platform for about 17 hours before it was removed.

But as users began discussing the viral post, the photos began to spread and were reposted on other accounts. Many still remain up, and Since then there has been a flood of new graphic fakes. In some areas, the term “Taylor Swift AI” appeared as a trending topic, promoting the images to a wider audience.

Swift fans are spamming the platform to cover up obvious fakes

Swift’s fan base has criticized X for allowing many of the posts to remain live as long as possible. In response, fans have flooded the hashtags used to disseminate images with messages that promote real clips of Swift’s performance to hide the obvious fakes.

This incident speaks to the real challenge of preventing deepfake porn and AI-generated images of real people. Some AI image generators have restrictions that prevent nude, pornographic and photorealistic images of celebrities from being produced, but many others do not explicitly provide such a service. The responsibility for preventing fake images from spreading often falls on social platforms — something that can be difficult to do in the best of circumstances and even harder for a company like X that has hobbled its moderation capabilities.

The company is currently being investigated by the European Union in relation to claims that it is being used to “spread illegal content and disinformation” and allegedly promoted misinformation about the Israel–Hamas war on the platform. After this, inquiries are being made about its crisis protocol.
