Taylor Swift has reportedly dismissed her backing dancer Toshi over offensive and derogatory social media posts.
Her long-time dancer and ‘close friend’ was absent from her performance at BBC Radio’s Biggest Weekend during Sunday’s headline performance, following a reported ‘bust-up’ between the pair.
Taylor, 28, was understood to be ‘livid’ after the dancer posted sexist memes on Instagram Stories, which were screengrabbed by her fans and shared online before he turned his Instagram account to private.
A source said on Wednesday: Taylor is livid and seriously disappointed with Toshi’s social media posts.
‘She has considered him one of her closest friends on the road after recruiting him for her 1989 tour back in 2014.’
The source continued: ‘But she simply cannot endorse this behaviour and to do so would be setting a bad example to her fans.’
A representative for Taylor Swift has been contacted by MailOnline for comment.
