Taylor Swift is picking up the battle her fans started with Netflix — ripping one of its hit shows for a sexist and misogynistic joke targeting her dating life.
Taylor fired back Monday morning at the streaming service and the writers of “Ginny and Georgia” over Sunday night’s finale which showed Ginny (Antonia Gentry) and her mother Georgia (Brianne Howey) arguing about relationships. Ginny quipped, “What do you care? You go through men faster than Taylor Swift.”
Well, Taylor ain’t laughing. She says, “2010 called and it wants its lazy, deeply sexist joke back. How about we stop degrading hard working women by defining this horse s**t as fuNny.”
Swift’s fans are also peeved … #RespectTaylor started trending overnight, and one fan tweeted, “It’s not sitting right with me [that] Netflix has two Taylor Swift projects on their platform and they are okay with treating her like this!!! RESPECT TAYLOR SWIFT.”
Yeah, Taylor remembers that too, and her tweet even referenced her “Miss Americana” special on Netflix. Suffice to say, Netflix has an unhappy partner in Taylor and a slew of pissed-off viewers … AKA the Swifties.
