Taylor Swift is firing back at Netflix after one of their new shows made a misogynistic comment about her! On Monday, the pop star expressed her disapproval of a joke made at her expense in Ginny & Georgia, taking to social media to comment on the problem with using sexism as humour.
Swift voices displeasure with "deeply sexist joke"
Swift spoke out about the issue on Twitter, including a screenshot of the line from Ginny & Georgia that she found offensive. While the screen is blacked out, subtitles show the quote in question. "What do you care?" one of the characters says. "You go through men faster than Taylor Swift."
While Swift has been dating boyfriend Joe Alwyn since 2016, over the years the media has perpetuated the narrative that she is a serial dater. "Hey Ginny & Georgia, 2010 called and it wants its lazy, deeply sexist joke back," the singer tweeted in response. "How about we stop degrading hard working women by defining this horse shit as FuNnY."
Swift takes aim at Netflix with pointed response
Swift didn't just call out Ginny & Georgia for the show's problematic joke— she also directly addressed Netflix. "Also, @netflix after Miss Americana this outfit doesn’t look cute on you," she ended the tweet, referring to her 2020 documentary that's on the streaming service. "Happy Women's History Month I guess"
Ginny & Georgia made its debut on Netflix on February 24. Centered on teenage "Ginny" and her mother "Georgia" as they start over in a new town, the series has already drawn comparisons to Gilmore Girls. Swift also made news last month after she dropped a major announcement on social media, hinting at the release date of her first full re-recorded album, Fearless!
