Swift Jet Tracking Controversy

Swift's Jet Tracking Dispute: Legal Clash with Student Over Privacy Concerns and Celebrity Monitoring


Legal Action Against Student Tracker:

Taylor Swift's legal team issues a cease-and-desist letter to Jack Sweeney, a 21-year-old student who tracks celebrities' private jet usage, including Swift's, on social media. The letter accuses Sweeney of "stalking and harassing behavior."

Contested Tracking Methods:

Sweeney, using publicly available information from the Federal Aviation Administration, disputes Swift's team's claims, asserting that it's not an invasion of privacy but a tracking of public figures.


Safety Concerns and Stalking Claims:

Swift's team cites safety concerns, emphasizing that Sweeney's location information contributes to stalking. The cease-and-desist letter warns of pursuing legal remedies if Sweeney doesn't cease his activities.

PR Management or Bullying?

Sweeney's attorney argues that Swift's team's claims are unfounded, portraying them as attempts to manage negative public relations and intimidate his client to quash bad coverage.


Ongoing Scrutiny Over Private Jet Usage:

Swift, previously criticized for her private jet emissions, faces continued scrutiny over her jet usage. The legal action adds to the ongoing discussion about celebrities' environmental impact.


Sweeney's Tracking History and Opposition:

Sweeney tracks various celebrities' private jets, facing opposition in the past, including being banned by Elon Musk for posting the Tesla CEO's "assassination coordinates."


Swift's Response and Carbon Offset:

Swift's spokesperson highlights that Swift purchased more than double the carbon credits needed to offset her travel, including the tour. Swift's team suggests a connection between Sweeney's posts and potential stalking incidents.


Shift in Tracking Strategy:

Sweeney's real-time Swift-tracking account is no longer active, but he has created a new account that tracks the singer's jet on a 24-hour delay.
