Taylor Swift song played by California deputy fails to censor video

A California sheriff’s deputy has attracted national attention after video shows he played a Taylor Swift song on his phone in a failed attempt to trigger censorship of an activist’s video. Instead the footage was successfully published and went viral.

On Tuesday morning in Oakland, Calif, James Burch and several activists went to the Alameda County courthouse and recorded a confrontation with a deputy, according to The Washington Post. As they recorded, the deputy reached into his pocket for his phone and started playing Taylor Swift’s 2014 hit single “Blank Space,” according to a YouTube video uploaded by Anti Police-Terror Project. 

The video shows a confrontation between Burch and the officer over the placement of a banner. 

Burch asked the deputy, “are we having a dance party right now?” The deputy said no and continued to blast the music, the video shows.
