Taylor Hawkins filmed taking money from opportunistic autograph seekers
Taylor Hawkins had a little fun at the expense of some autograph seekers who were probably trying to sell her John Hancock online later.
The TMZ video below shows Hawkins exiting his hotel in New York City, and an autograph seeker immediately shouts, “Taylor, I got $ 40.” Hawkins then immediately goes to that person’s house, takes their money, and then signs an autograph.
The TMZ photographer begins to dot Hawkins with questions about his autograph rates, potential discounts, and if he’s taking Venmo. The drummer then understands and says: “Are you TMZ?” and despite wearing a face cover, he clearly starts to smile and laugh.
As for the âdiscounts,â Hawkins clearly has one for true fans (âIf you go to the show then you’re a fan.â) And not the people who hang out outside his hotel trying to get an autograph they try to sell later. . (An autograph seeker can be seen in the video below giving Hawkins a baseball to sign.)
So how much money did Hawkins make from this autograph blitz? A whopping $ 64, which he says he appreciates because he “hates going to the ATM.” He then razes Pat Smear as he signs autographs and tells him to get some money too.
The lesson today? If you are looking to make money with Taylor Hawkins autograph, be prepared to give it some kind of cut.
