Taylor Swift is calling out the Netflix’s “Ginny and Georgia” for a joke about the singer’s dating life.
An episode of the 2021 comedy series starring Antonia Gentry and Brianne Howey includes a comment made by teenager Ginny Miller (Gentry), who responds to her mother’s inquiries about her relationship by saying, “What do you care? You go through men faster than Taylor Swift.”
Swift, who has had her relationships scrutinized in the public eyefor years, expressed her disappointment with the show on Twitter, calling the joke “lazy” and “deeply sexist.”
“Hey Ginny & Georgia, 2010 called and it wants its lazy, deeply sexist joke back,” she wrote Monday. “How about we stop degrading hard working women by defining this horse (expletive) as FuNnY.”
She also criticized Netflix, with whom she collaborated with for her 2020 documentary “Miss Americana.”
“Also, @netflix after Miss Americana this outfit doesn’t look cute on you. Happy Women’s History Month I guess,” Swift added. Her response comes on the first day of March, which marks the start of Women’s History Month.

This isn’t the first time Swift has spoken out about criticism against women in the entertainment industry. In October 2019, the singer opened up about being slut-shamed as a way to minimize her artistic skill and success.
“When I was like 23 and people were just kind of reducing me to, kind of making slideshows of my dating life and putting people in there that I’d sat next to at a party once and deciding that my songwriting was like a trick rather than a skill and a craft,” Swift said in an interview with Zane Lowe for Apple Music’s Beats 1.
“It’s a way to take a woman who’s doing her job and succeeding at doing her job and making things. And in a way, it’s figuring out how to completely minimize that skill by taking something that everyone in their darkest, darkest moments loves to do, which is just to slut shame.”
