Fake News: Jean Poole Productions Did NOT Pull Their Taylor Swift World Tour Promotion

Did a company named "Jean Poole Productions" pull their promotion of Taylor Swift's upcoming world tour? No, that's not true: the company doesn't even exist, it was all made up by a liberal satire page on Facebook looking to troll conservatives and Trump supporters. It is not real.

The story originated from a meme post published on October 9, 2018 by a Facebook page named "America's Last Line Of Defense " (archived here) with following text:


The full text on the meme image in the post read:

Jean Poole Productions has pulled their promotion of Taylor Swift's upcoming world tour!

In a statement, they say, "anti-Americanism is not something we can support"

However there is no company named "Jean Poole Productions" (although it sounds suspiciously like "Gene Pool" when you say it out loud) and the page that initially posted the meme has following description on their "Info" tab:

Nothing on this page is real. It is a collection of the satirical whimsies of liberal trolls masquerading as conservatives. You have been warned.
Use the force and the truth shall reveal itself. Just not here. Ever.
Good Old Fashioned Liberal Troll Provided Fantasy presented as comedy to the left and a social experiment to the right. Please don't hurt the Trumpanzees. they'll be gone in a few years back to the shadows from whence they came and we'll be back to trolling Tea Turds.

Note: there does appear to be a VJ named Jean Poole in Melbourne, Australia but he doesn't have anything to do with this.
