Taylor Swift is currently sliding into her fans’ DMs and giving them cash to help them through the current COVID-19 crisis. Screenshots from fans who’d been offered the dosh began appearing on Twitter yesterday.
Fans shared screenshots of their DMs with Taylor Swift. She seemingly hit up fans who’d posted about struggling with the current crisis financially and offered them each a cool $ 3000USD.
In true stan fashion most of them seem more excited about the pop star using their first name than the cash — relatable.

Taylor Swift isn’t the only celeb to offer fans assistance through the current situation. Britney Spears recently posted to Instagram encouraging fans who needed help to DM her and ask for assistance. “Whether it’s food or getting your child diapers or whatever it is, DM me and I will help you out,” Spears said.
Ariana Grande is also doing her bit. Posting a story on Instagram, Grande shared the relief organisations she’s supporting.
“While we are social distancing and doing the best we can to protect one another, my heart hurts for the small businesses, individuals and families affected by all of this,” she said.
“I am supporting the organizations below and if you are able to, you should too.”
