After Ana’s death, Taylor took to Instagram to express her sorrow over the tragic incident. She wrote, “I can’t believe I’m writing these words, but it is with a shattered heart that I announce we lost a fan earlier tonight before my show. I am devastated beyond words. The little information I have reveals she was incredibly beautiful and tragically young. Overwhelmed by grief, I won’t be able to address this from the stage. I want to say now that I feel this loss deeply, and my broken heart goes out to her family and friends. This is the last thing I ever thought would happen when we decided to bring this tour to Brazil.”
