Taylor Swift's $50K donation to NYC schools sparks backlash

Capital New York reported Tuesday that the pop country star has donated $50,000 in profits from her hit song “Welcome to New York” to New York City’s public schools, but her gesture is not getting quite the reception she was likely hoping for.

Swift, who reportedly earned $64 million last year, had previously promised to donate all the proceeds from the song to the city’s public schools during an October 2014 appearance on “The View.”
