Taylor Swift takes aim at Netflix for 'deeply' sexist joke

Taylor Swift has taken to her social media channels to vent her frustrations at being the butt of what she calls a “deeply” sexist joke, accusing the Netflix show of “degrading” women for a few laughs.

The pop star tweeted her criticism which featured in the season finale of Netflix show Ginny & Georgia, a widely-loved comedy-drama. It’s one of many occasions that Swift’s romantic life has been made fun of but it would seem that this joke pushed the singer over the edge.

The joke came when Ginny Miller and her mother Georgia were discussing their relationships. When asked whether Ginny had split up with her boyfriend she replied: “What do you care? You go through men faster than Taylor Swift?”

It’s not the first time the joke has been used, but it was enough to upset Swift and encourage her to share her feelings on the matter. Swift’s fans, legendary in their own vehemence, alerted the singer to the joke, and she responded.

Swift tweeted: “Hey Ginny & Georgia, 2010 called and it wants its lazy, deeply sexist joke back. How about we stop degrading hard working women by defining this horse shit as FuNnY.

“Also, @netflix after Miss Americana this outfit doesn’t look cute on you 💔 Happy Women’s History Month I guess”

So far there has been no comment from either Netflix or anybody associated with Ginny & Georgia surrounding the joke.
