Taylor Swift got a massive show of support from fans at her first concert since her feud with music tycoon Scooter Braun went public.
The 29-year-old singer headlined Amazon’s Prime Day concert in New York on Wednesday night for an audience of roughly 2,000 people at the Hammerstein Ballroom.
In the crowd, fans expressed support for the singer by shining their smartphone flashlights through pink paper hearts which read, “Hold this PINK heart against your flashlight the moment Taylor Swift finishes performing her first song. #WeStandWithTaylor.”

Swift’s feud with Braun created a firestorm last week after the singer posted a lengthy blog on Tumblr accusing the manager of bullying her, and lashing out at him for acquiring the record label, Big Machine, which owns her first six albums.
Fans also noticed that while performing her hit “Shake It Off”, Swift put extra emphasis on the line calling out “the liars and dirty, dirty cheats of the world.”
A number of musicians have since spoken out, with many taking sides in the battle between Swift and Braun.
At the Prime Day concert, Swift was joined by co-headliners SZA, Becky G and Dua Lipa, who all performed for the cheering audience. She also invited actors and activists Jane Lynch and Tyler Oakley to the stage.
