The Chiefs-Ravens game with Taylor Swift and Jason Kelce is not Patrick Mahomes' dad's favorite.  

The sexual AI-generated Taylor Swift photos on the internet are being condemned by SAG-AFTRA. 

“The sexually explicit, A.I.-generated images depicting Taylor Swift are upsetting, harmful, and deeply concerning,” the union declared Friday, January 26. “Creating and sharing fake images, especially lewd ones, without consent must be illegal. Society can manage these technologies, but we must act now before it's too late.” 

New York Congressman Joe Morelle's Preventing Deepfakes of Intimate Images Act received SAG-AFTRA's support. Organization aims to “stop exploitation of this nature” and prevent it from happening again. The statement concluded, “We support Taylor and women everywhere who are victims of this kind of theft of privacy and right to autonomy. 

By Wednesday, January 24, phony photographs propagated on X. The initial post had 45 million views until Facebook removed it after 17 hours, according to The Verge. X has not commented. Grammy winner Swift has not commented, although sources suggested she may sue. 

Other groups are demanding AI action besides SAG-AFTRA. The White House acknowledged the “alarming” situation. “Of course Congress should take legislative action,” press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre stated Friday (news conference). “That’s how you handle some issues.” 

Many tech businesses have invested in organizational AI. Microsoft's CoPilot competes with OpenAI's Chat GPT. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said Swift's “alarming and terrible” photos require quick action to protect people. 

“I think we all benefit when the online world is a safe world,” 56-year-old Nadella told NBC News' Lester Holt on Friday. I don't think anyone wants a dangerous online world for content creators and consumers. I think we should move quickly on this.” 

SAG-AFTRA's strike last year focused on AI. SAG-AFTRA won most of its AI limits in November 2023 when the studios and guild reached an agreement. One of their main demands was that studios acquire actor permission before exploiting their likeness.
