Taylor Swift fans are outraged after seeing a pic of an infant lying on the ground during one of the singer’s Eras Tour concerts in Paris.

Twitter user @jacnights13 shared a photo of a baby appearing to be asleep on a purple coat in the standing room section of Swift’s show at the La Défense Arena.

An unidentified person could be seen standing over the baby in the snap, but it’s unclear whether they were the little one’s parent or guardian.

“Not to be one of those people but I would genuinely call security if I saw a baby in the pit because it is NOT safe there,” the user captioned the photo.

 

The tweet has since been deleted.

The fan –– who attended the Friday show in Paris –– later clarified that the photo was not theirs.

The photo quickly went viral and fans replied with their shock over the “upsetting” picture.

“as a mum of a baby that’s about this size, I couldn’t imagine being them into a concert at all. I understand sitters are hard to find, so if you really needed to bring them, you shouldn’t be in the pit. you should have a carrier for them, and the baby needs ear protection,” someone tweeted.

“how could they even think that bringing a baby in these kind of events is a good idea with,” another person asked.

“can’t imagine how stressful it must have been for the baby to be in that environment,” someone wrote.“wtf … wouldn’t a baby find it overwhelming too, it looks like they may have ear protectors on but even so it wld still be loud, chaotic, lots of movement & flashing lights etc :/ I don’t see the point in taking a baby to a concert tbh they are not gonna even know what’s going on,” another user shared.

“Literally if there was an emergency and everyone had to rush to exit that baby would get stepped on or injured. It’s literally so upsetting to me I can’t even,” a person wrote.

Reps for Swift and the La Défense Arena did not immediately respond to Page Six’s requests for comment.

The arena’s website made a guide just for Swift’s concerts in Paris from May 9 to May 12 and included clarifications like bag regulations and prohibited items, but it didn’t say anything about rules with children.

Another section of the website states that the arena “doesn’t recommend bringing children under the age of 4, even if accompanied, particularly due to the high volume.”

The Cruel Summer songstress, 34, kicked off her Eras Tour in Paris on May 9 after taking a few months off and releasing her new album, The Tortured Poets Department.

Swift has since reworked both her outfits and setlist to include songs from the chart-topping album.
