Update: Taylor Swift to Donate Concert Tix to Deaf School

In a story we’ve been following, TODAYonline reports that Taylor Swift, after an Internet hoax promised a concert at Horace Mann School for the Deaf, has offered to give the school over 12,000 dollars worth of tickets.

The cruel joke was intended to mock both Swift and the Deaf population – the idea being that Deaf kids can’t enjoy music. The principal of the school however, stated unequivocally that his students welcomed Swift, and were disappointed when the school was disqualified from the contest.

We applaud Taylor Swift on her decision to try and get some of these kids in to see her show.
