Taylor Swift has accused a Netflix show of “degrading” women for featuring a joke she branded “deeply sexist”.
The pop star wrote on Twitter criticizing the joke, which was at the end of the comedy season Ginny and Georgia.
The ‘Sexist’ Joke
In one scene, the main characters Ginny Miller and her mother Georgia argue over a relationship.
Asked if she was divorced from her boyfriend, Ginny said: “What do you care about? You go through men faster than Taylor Swift.”
The channel has caused outrage among Swift fans, which has led to criticism of the show and its cast members on social media. Some Swift fans have even asked to boycott the series.
Taylor Swift’s Tweet
On Monday, Swift herself addressed the controversy in a tweet, writing: “Hey Ginny & Georgia, 2010 called and it wants its lazy, deeply sexist joke back.”
Netflix has not yet commented on the criticism, and no one has been in contact with Ginny and Georgia.
Swift’s Love Life
Swift’s love life has long been in the news in the media.
Swift has been in a relationship with 30-year-old British actor Joe Alwyn for several years.
The couple has kept their relationship a secret – although Alwyn is considered the subject of of her 2019 track London Boy, in which she sang about her experiences in the city.
The actor also included songs on two recent Swift albums, Folklore and Evermore, under the pseudonym William Bowery.
On Monday’s Twitter account, Swift once again pointed to her documentary Miss Americana, released on Netflix in January 2020.
Covering several years of turmoil during Taylor’s career, the documentary revealed intimate details of Swift’s life, exploring how her relationships had been dissected by the public and press.
