LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Taylor Swift has once again become the talk of social media as Disney Plus secured the rights to her 'Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour' movie for a whopping $75 million. The substantial sum paid by Disney Plus to stream the concert film left internet users astounded.

Beauty brands like L'Oreal and Dove are capitalizing on this trend by investing in Super Bowl commercials, despite the $7 million price tag, to reach a broader demographic, highlighting how brands are leveraging Swift's influence.

However, amid the praise, trolls haven't held back from targeting Swift and her partner, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce. Recently, they criticized Kelce and Swift after the tight end addressed questions about the parking issue involving the singer's jet on the day of the Super Bowl.
