Taylor Swift… dividing the Internet since 2006
Chegg and Papa Jones once organized a contest for US schools. The most popular school at the end of the contest would have had Taylor Swift perform for them. 4Channers once again got together and ensured that Horace Mann School won the competition – with over 5 times the votes of the other schools.
While the above doesn’t seem fishy at all, it all made sense when it was found that Horace Mann is a school for the deaf. Event organizers had to remove the school from the contest, but the school got $50k in donations with $10k coming from Swift alone, giving this story its happy ending.
