The School Leaver Tax Policy has not — in fact — been implemented in New Zealand yet, nor will it necessarily be — many are against it because it works against already impoverished and homeless families.
So, why would any of this be affecting Lorde right now, if the policy is yet to be approved?
Was Lorde arrested? It was all a rumor.
A Twitter Moment from Oct. 7 featured a photo of Lorde, with the caption:
“Singer/Songwriter Lorde (Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O’Connor) has been rumored she will be imprisoned for denying to pay a fine of $3,000 in New Zealand.”
Publications like The Spin Off and News Hub have reported famous New Zealanders who would receive fines for this law, should it be implemented. But since it hasn’t happened, it seems like Twitter just hasn’t done their research. Tsk, tsk.
