US Politicians Push for Deepfake Laws After Taylor Swift Images Circulate Online

US lawmakers are calling for new rules to make creating fake images, known as deepfakes, illegal, especially after explicit ones of Taylor Swift went viral.

Rep. Joe Morelle condemned the spread of the images, and social media platforms like X are working to remove them.

Deepfakes use fancy tech to manipulate videos, and their use has skyrocketed in recent years. While some states are taking action, there are no national laws against them in the US yet.

Lawmakers stress the harm these fake images can cause, especially to women. Swift’s team might take legal action against the site that posted the images.

This incident highlights growing concerns about fake content, especially during important events like elections.
