Taylor Swift has accused a Netflix show of “degrading” women for featuring a joke she branded “deeply sexist”.
The pop star tweeted to criticise the joke, which was in the season finale of comedy-drama Ginny and Georgia.
In one scene, main characters Ginny Miller and her mother Georgia argued about relationships.
Asked whether she had broken up her with her boyfriend, Ginny said: “What do you care? You go through men faster than Taylor Swift.”
The line incurred the wrath of Swift’s fans, prompting criticism of the show and its cast members on social media. Some Swift fans even called for a boycott of the series.
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.”
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.
