Taylor Swift the victim of latest Facebook contest prank

Taylor Swift has become the latest victim of mischief makers who sent rapper Pitbull to a remote Walmart store in Kodiak, Alaska.

Pitbull agreed to visit the most popular Walmart in a recent Papa John's-sponsored Facebook vote-in contest, prompting pranksters to pick the most remote store they could find.


But the game rapper didn't disappoint and jetted off to Alaska for the meet and greet in July (12).


And now the jokers are trying to send Swift to perform at a school for deaf children.


As part of the new Facebook contest, the country singer will visit the school with the highest number of votes.


The site has been hijacked and the Horace Mann School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing in Allston, Massachusetts is leading the pack with well over 6,000 votes.


The school that wins the overall vote will host the gig in mid October (12) - and Swift's performance will be taped to air in November (12) on VH1.
