The internet has been shaken by the emergence of fake AI-generated images of Taylor Swift, initially shared on the platform formerly known as Twitter and originating from a Telegram group focused on distributing “abusive images of women,” as reported by 404 Media.
These images started circulating online recently, sparking widespread outrage and potentially marking a significant moment in addressing the harmful impact of spreading non-consensual deepfake pornography.
According to reports, at least one member of the Telegram group claimed responsibility for some of the Swift images, suggesting they didn’t know whether to feel flattered or upset by the unauthorized use of their content.
While it remains unclear how many AI tools were utilized to create these images, 404 Media confirmed that some members of the Telegram group utilized Microsoft’s free text-to-image AI generator, Designer.

The images weren’t produced by training an AI model specifically on Taylor Swift’s images but rather by exploiting tools like Designer to bypass safeguards designed to prevent the generation of images featuring celebrities. Members of the group shared strategies for circumventing these safeguards by using alternative keywords to describe the desired content, resulting in the creation of sexualized images.
Although Microsoft hasn’t confirmed that its AI tools were involved, the company is taking measures to strengthen filters on prompts to prevent future misuse.
Some members of the Telegram group appeared amused by the spread of the images, while others cautioned against sharing them outside the group to avoid potential consequences.
Telegram, the platform where the images originated, has yet to respond to requests for comment.
These fake images of Taylor Swift first appeared on X (formerly known as Twitter), where they quickly garnered widespread attention. Some posts have since been removed, but others remain online, with some receiving millions of views before being taken down.
Since the initial spread, a significant number of additional fake images have surfaced, spreading to various platforms including Reddit, Facebook, and Instagram. Despite efforts by platforms like X to ban the sharing of AI-generated images, detecting and removing banned content before it gains traction remains a challenge.
This incident highlights the evolving capabilities of AI image-generation technology and the challenges in combating the spread of non-consensual deepfake pornography. It also underscores the need for stricter regulations and improved moderation on social media platforms to prevent the dissemination of harmful content.
As the situation continues to unfold, it’s crucial for platforms to take proactive measures to address the issue and create a safer online environment for all users.
