Leaders of an Allston school for children who are deaf and hard of hearing are looking to turn an insensitive Internet prank into something positive.
Young pop-sensation Taylor Swift recently announced that she will perform a live concert at whichever school in the country receives the most online votes through a promotional campaign.
As reported by the blog Gawker, online pranksters tried this week to make fun of Swift by voting, and recruiting others to vote, for her to perform at the Horace Mann School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing in Allston.
But, despite what the web pranksters might have believed, people who are deaf enjoy music.
And, the school’s headmaster, Jeremiah Ford, said he would be thrilled to have Swift perform at the school, should they win the voting.
