Fan sells dried contact lenses that have ‘seen Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour’ for over P500-K

How far will you go to prove you're a true-blue Swiftie? If you think it calls for spending almost half a million pesos on someone else's used contact lenses, then this could be your lucky day.

A Taylor Swift fan has been making rounds online for selling a pair of dried-up contact lenses that "have seen taylor swift eras tour" for a staggering amount of $10,000 or P558,000.

The hard and clearly unusable contact lenses were posted by the fan on the clothing e-commerce platform Depop on Wednesday, May 10, and described them as "used" yet in "excellent" condition.

Shortly after the bizarre listing began circulating online, several Tay Tay fans took to Twitter to express how "disgusting," "weird," and "embarrassing" it actually is.

Meanwhile, some people stressed how the fandom seems to have become too obsessive about the singer-songwriter.

One Twitter user said, "Celebrity worship gone too far!" while another one wrote, "Started from the bottom now we a little bit below the bottom somehow." 

"Swifties are so unhinged. I love us so much," another fan chided.

Some took the matter with sarcasm, saying, "Let me go sell my eyeglasses" and "Do they come with eyes?" Another user wrote, "Does it include the whole setlist's recording?"

But then there were some who lauded the seller for putting them out on the market.

"Oh you would do it too if you saw the Eras tour," one fan wrote while another one said, "We love a women entrepreneur!"

Amid all the clout it was getting, the seller eventually took the listing down and said she wasn't actually selling the used contact lenses.

"LMAO IT WAS A JOKE," the seller clarified on her profile page.

Taylor announced that she would be having her sixth concert tour, titled "Eras," on Good Morning America and her social media accounts on Nov. 1 of last year. Her first in five years, Taylor's Eras tour features a three-hour setlist spanning 44 songs from four of her albums: Love, Folklore, Evenmore, and Midnights.

The tour will run across 20 cities in the United States and has kicked off with a two-night concert in Glendale, Arizona last March 17-18. It is set to conclude on Aug. 9 in Inglewood, California.
