Taylor Swift lashed out at both Netflix and the new show Ginny & Georgia for a line that mocked Swift’s dating life.
On Monday, Taylor Swift posted a screenshot of the line from the show.
A character said, “You go through men faster than Taylor Swift.” Swift responded: “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.”
Netflix did not respond to HuffPost’s request for comment.
Many Swift fans left bad reviews for the show on Rotten Tomatoes:
And others applauded Swift’s clapback, but some pointed out that the idea that Netflix should not “neuter its artists’ content to avoid offending more powerful and famous past collaborators.”
Swift has frequently called out sexism in the past. In a Vogue interview from 2019, she said:
“It’s fine to infantilize a girl’s success and say, ’How cute that she’s having some hit songs. How cute that she’s writing songs.’ But the second it becomes formidable? As soon as I started playing stadiums ― when I started to look like a woman ― that wasn’t as cool anymore.”
She noted that a male artist would never have received the same kind of critique.
“People would act like it was a weapon I was using. Like a cheap dirty trick,” she said of her songwriting. “Be careful, bro, she’ll write a song about you. Don’t stand near her. First of all, that’s not how it works. Second of all, find me a time when they say that about a male artist: Be careful, girl, he’ll use his experience with you to get ― God forbid ― inspiration to make art.”
