If you’re one of the few holdouts who still hasn’t hopped on board the Taylor Swift fan bus, maybe her recent act of selflessness will change your mind.
Taylor Swift donated $50,000 from the proceeds of her song "Welcome to New York" to the New York City public school system.
It’s a kind gesture from the celebrated artist, but as Swift sings in her song "Shake It Off": Haters gonna hate, hate, hate.
Not everyone was impressed with the donation. Some detractors think that Swift should have given more, considering the fact that she reportedly earned over $60 million in 2014.
Taylor Swift giving 50,000 dollars to NYC schools is like me throwing a quarter at a homeless guy— Katie Pisarcik (@KatiePisarcik) February 24, 2015
However, Devora Kaye, a spokeswoman for the Department of Education, issued a statement to MSNBC saying that New York City was "deeply appreciative of this kind of gesture."
