Microsoft closed the loophole in its AI image generator that could create explicit images of celebrities like Taylor Swift.

After graphic AI-generated images of Taylor Swift became a trending topic on X, 404 Media reported on people creating and trading similar pictures created using Microsoft’s Designer AI image generator. By altering prompts, they were able to get around simple name blocks.

After CEO Satya Nadella said last week that guardrails are “our responsibility,” 404 Media reports the loopholes have been closed. Sarah Bird, a Responsible AI Engineering Lead at Microsoft confirmed the changes, saying:

We are committed to providing a safe and respectful experience for everyone. We are continuing to investigate these images and have strengthened our existing safety systems to further prevent our services from being misused to help generate images like them.
