The company blamed bot attacks and uninvited fans for driving “unprecedented traffic” to its web traffic. Beyond fan ire, lawmakers and state attorneys general said this week that they would heighten scrutiny over Ticketmaster’s dominance of the primary ticketing sales. On Friday, the New York Times reported that the US Department of Justice has opened an antitrust probe into the company, citing people familiar with the matter. “It’s truly amazing that 2.4 million people got tickets, but it really pisses me off that a lot of them feel like they went through several bear attacks to get them,” Swift said. The singer-songwriter said she is “trying to figure out how this situation can be improved going forward” but stopped short of saying if fans can still buy tickets to this tour in the future.
