Police Arrest Man Holding a “Taylor Swift Is With Satan” Sign

Same man also posted death threats on Facebook.

There were some troubling moments for Taylor Swift Saturday (July 6) at her concert at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, where the Steelers play.

A man arrived at the concert with two signs, one reading “Taylor Swift is with Satan,” the other reading, “I luv you,” according to KDKA-TV.

After a little investigation, police found that the same man, Joseph Jackson, 28, also made a death threat on Facebook, posting, “Taylor Swift must perish and die.”

Police said the man became agitated when asked about the Facebook post.

Jackson told arresting officers, “Taylor Swift is Satan and that 6,000 years is six days and death comes on the sixth day, so Taylor Swift is in danger.”

Police then handcuffed him and took him for a mental evaluation.
