Ask Taylor Swift to Say #NupToTheCup

It seems Taylor Swift is either completely unaware of the cruel reality of horse racing or she has put money before compassion by agreeing to perform at the 2019 Melbourne Cup.
This is an event where at least 6 horses have been KILLED over the past 6 years. With such huge success already, she could easily afford to not only say NO, but use the opportunity to help the horses by speaking up against animal cruelty.
The day is becoming widely regarded as a national disgrace, with #NupToTheCup last year trending all day on Twitter.
One horse is killed on Australian racetracks every three days. Thousands who are fortunate enough to survive being beaten with a whip and pushed well beyond their limits on the track are slaughtered when no longer profitable. Many don't even make it to the track, killed as foals for simply not having the desired attributes.
Taylor Swift is endorsing animal abuse by performing at this event where horses are being killed for gambling profits and entertainment. If she cares at all about other animals the way she appears to care about cats, she will cancel her show and use her voice to make a strong statement that animal abuse is unacceptable and say #NupToTheCup.
