Singer-songwriter Taylor Swift was not doing presumptive President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.’s campaign hand sign when she made a “V” hand gesture during her speech at the New York University commencement ceremony last May 18, contrary to what a YouTube video insinuated.

YouTube channel DDS Watch uploaded a video on May 19 implying that Swift expressed support for Marcos.

A full video of Swift’s speech from CBS New York’s YouTube channel shows the pop star making the V sign with her both hands at the 1:27 mark in reference to her hit song “22” and not in support of Marcos.

Swift was the guest speaker at this year’s NYU graduation, where she also received an honorary doctorate of fine arts.

FactRakers is a Philippines-based fact-checking initiative of journalism majors at the University of the Philippines-Diliman working under the supervision of Associate Professor Yvonne T. Chua of the University of the Philippines’ Journalism Department. Associate Professor Ma. Diosa Labiste, also of the Journalism Department, serves as editorial consultant.

The name of the initiative, coined from the words “fact” and “raker,” is inspired by the term “muckrakers,” first used in the early 1900s by American president Theodore Roosevelt to express his annoyance at progressive, reform-minded journalists at the time.
