4chan rigs another Taylor Swift contest. [Event]

So, Kiss 108fm recently posted a poll in which users could submit a story and win the chance to meet Taylor Swift. Pic related:


4chan found out and one user decided to vote in his “creepy 39 year old friend” who allegedly wants to sniff Swift’s hair. Charming stuff from a charming website.



Users got voting, and sure enough Charles ended up making first place.



Poll is still yet to officially close, but there was plenty of attention on /b/ earlier today, and on the 4chan subreddit.

Update: The contest has been terminated, despite all of the votes being legitimate. I guess Kiss.fm discriminates based on the physical appearance of their contestants.

“Disappointingly, we have determined that the integrity of the Taylor Swift’s Biggest Fan contest has been compromised. In accordance with our contest rules, effective immediately, the contest has been terminated. We apologize to all of our loyal listeners who have participated.”

I’m new to this forum, and so some of my links didn’t post properly. Apparently I can’t delete the above post either. I kind of went all out with this post. A combination of exam procrastination and OCD. Opp.
