Taylor Swift superfan is mercilessly ridiculed online after suffering a hysterical BREAKDOWN outside of an Eras tour concert – claiming the singer’s music ‘saved her life’

A hysterical Swiftie has been ridiculed online after having a meltdown during Taylor Swift’s Eras tour in Sydney.

Madison Blackband, 20, was sitting outside Accor Stadium with two of her friends on Sunday night when she heard the singer perform Folklore hit Exile as a surprise number in the setlist.

Immediately upon hearing the first few chords of the ballad, the Brisbane model burst into tears and wailed at the top of her lungs before falling into her friend’s arms.

Her two friends seemed to awkwardly stifle laughter for a few moments as they comforted the inconsolable blonde.

Blackband shared a video of the emotional incident on TikTok, writing: “My reaction to Taylor singing Exile (aka the song that saved my life).”

The clip was then reposted on X, formerly Twitter, where it was met with a scathing response.

“The way both friends look at each other like ‘NOT laughing’ is f***ing to me,” one person wrote.

“You will never see me film this and show it to the world,” another added.

“The mental illness is not the crying, which is fake, but the filming of the fake crying,” someone else theorized. ‘The theatrical and narcissistic ownership of a song that someone wrote without you in mind.’

Despite the backlash, a number of Swifties took to social media to defend Blackband’s emotional display.

“You’re all so mean. Like, have some fucking EMPATHY, my god,” someone raged.

‘Why are you guys so annoying about this in the comments? She clearly said the song has helped her in the past,” wrote another.

“She’s overwhelmed. It can be sad and it can be happy… it’s not your place to see someone’s emotions as not okay, especially with (Taylor).”

Blackband itself also responded to the backlash in a message to

‘I literally agree that it’s funny, so dramatic and that I need to go to a psychiatric ward. No normal person reacts to something like that, but why would I be so REALLY mean?’ she posted.

In a statement to Ny Breaking, Blackband explained her decision to film her dramatic reaction for social media.

“The song has such a deep meaning to me and I appreciate the story it tells. “A lot of fans had recorded their reactions to the acoustic part of the show, so we thought we would do the same,” she said.

‘Being outside, it was a little difficult for me to hear what song was being played during the second half of the acoustic set. “I noticed one of my friends start saying the words ‘Exile’ and I was suddenly overwhelmed with emotion,” she continued.

‘At first I was upset that I wasn’t in the stadium to see it… but being surrounded by my friends who knew how important ‘Exile’ was to me meant a lot. I’m glad they were with me.’

Blackband then insisted that her two friends were not ashamed of her, despite cruel comments online saying otherwise.

‘Contrary to what many comments on the video say, my friends did not judge me. They also feel very passionate about Taylor’s music,” she said.

“Although my response has been labeled ‘exaggerated’ and ‘dramatic’, it was unplanned and was not a fake response just for ‘opinions.’ In fact, I have laughed along with many of the memes created from the video, and I am not upset or embarrassed by any of the comments that have been made.”

The star’s loyal fans, known as Swifties, have developed a reputation for their emotional antics, including hysterical public meltdowns and uncontrollable crying.

During a performance at The Grove in Los Angeles last October to promote her concert film Eras, a handful of Swift fans were moved to tears as soon as they saw the singer in person.

The Cruel Summer singer walked through a barricade filled to the brim with her supporters, taking time to chat with many of them, hugging them and even taking selfies with some.

Many fans became overwhelmed with emotion, bursting into tears or covering their mouths in awe as Taylor greeted them.

Others remained calm, but burst into sobs as soon as she walked away.
