Online Platform X Takes Action Against Graphic Deepfake Content Featuring Taylor Swift to Safeguard Users and Maintain Content Integrity

As of Sunday night, attempts to search for “Taylor Swift” on the platform yield an error message stating, “Something went wrong. Try reloading.” Joe Benarroch, head of business operations at X, confirmed the temporary measure, emphasizing the platform’s commitment to user safety.

“This is a temporary action and done with an abundance of caution as we prioritize safety on this issue,” stated Benarroch in response to the explicit deepfake incident.

Last week, Reality Defend, a group specializing in deepfake detection, reported the widespread dissemination of AI-generated explicit material featuring Swift, reaching millions of users before certain content was taken down. The majority of these deepfakes were identified on X, with some instances found on Meta-owned Facebook and other social media platforms.

The incident has reignited discussions about the risks associated with AI-generated content and prompted calls from federal lawmakers for social media platforms to strengthen their enforcement against deepfakes. The White House expressed concern over the circulation of such content, emphasizing the role of social media companies in preventing the spread of misinformation and non-consensual intimate imagery.

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella advocated for additional “guardrails” on AI in response to the deepfake incident involving Taylor Swift. President Biden, recognizing the potential risks of AI, signed an executive order in October aimed at addressing safety and privacy concerns associated with the rapidly advancing technology.
