- Tickets are still available for screenings of "The Eras Tour" in Israel.
Fans of superstar singer Taylor Swift can now see "Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour" film in theaters worldwide, but recent social media posts suggest that’s not so if they live in Israel.
"Taylor Swift pulls Eras film screenings in Israel," reads the text in a video shared Nov. 6 on Instagram. In the video, a woman says people were sharing what appeared to be screenshots of Swift’s website showing a message that said, "All screenings for this country are postponed until further notice."
This post was flagged as part of Meta’s efforts to combat false news and misinformation on its News Feed. (Read more about our partnership with Meta, which owns Facebook and Instagram.)
When PolitiFact visited Swift’s website for the movie Nov. 8, tickets were available for the movie in Israel.
TMZ reported Nov. 6 that a "technical issue" that day meant "people who were going to Taylor’s official website for the ‘Eras’ movie could not pull up Israeli locations at all." The celebrity news website said the delay was caused by a "third-party company" and that "even while tickets in Israel were temporarily not available to the public on TS’s site, we confirmed you could still go to individual Israeli theater chains/sites and purchase tickets there."
That same day, The Jerusalem Post reported that fans in Jerusalem had attended a Nov. 4 screening of "The Eras Tour."
So far, Swift hasn’t taken a stance on the Israel-Hamas war, despite pressure from people on both sides.
We rate claims that she pulled her movie from Israel False.
