Taylor Swift hits out at Netflix's Ginny and Georgia for 'deeply sexist joke' about her love life

Taylor Swift has condemned the new Netflix series Ginny and Georgia after it included a "degrading" joke about her love life. 

The 'Shake It Off' singer took aim at a line of dialogue in which lead character Ginny says: "What do you care? You go through men faster than Taylor Swift." 

Swift's former relationships have long been the punchline of many jokes in pop culture - but this latest example sent fans into a fury, and saw 'Respect Taylor Swift' trend on Twitter. 

The singer herself spoke up about the joke, calling out Netflix for approving the content after she worked with the streaming giant on her 2020 documentary Miss Americana, where she discussed misogyny and sexism in the industry. 

"Hey Ginny & Georgia, 2010 called and it wants its lazy, deeply sexist joke back," Swift tweeted. 

"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," she added, followed by a broken heart emoji. 

It's not the first time Swift has hit out at those who have scrutinised her love life. Back in 2014, she insisted that critics who claimed she only wrote songs about her exes were taking "a very sexist angle". 

"No-one says that about Ed Sheeran. No-one says that about Bruno Mars," she said during a radio interview with 2Day FM. 

"Frankly, that is a very sexist angle to take." 

Swift has been in a relationship with actor Joe Alwyn since 2017.
