Furious Taylor publicly slams Netflix

Taylor Swift has fiercely responded to a comment made about her on a Netflix series in a rare public statement.

The 31-year-old singer hit out at US dramedy series Ginny & Georgia, which dropped on the streaming platform last week, for a joke made by one of the characters: "What do you care? You go through men faster than Taylor Swift."

It was met with backlash by Swift's army of loyal supporters at the weekend, before Swift herself took to Twitter overnight to skewer the "deeply sexist joke".

"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 sh*t as FuNnY," she wrote.

"Also, @netflix after Miss Americana this outfit doesn't look cute on you. Happy Women's History Month I guess."

Miss Americana was the hugely successful behind the scenes documentary about Swift, which dropped on Netflix in January last year.

Netflix is yet to comment.

The furore over the comment in Ginny & Georgia sparked the hashtag #RESPECTTAYLORSWIFT which was trending worldwide on the social media platform on Sunday.

Fans also called for Netflix to cancel the series.

And while Swift's millions of diehard fans appear to outweigh mixed debate, some expressed concerns about celebrities being able to control content on separate mediums.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Swift has been the subject of significant commentary about her personal life for most of her career, thanks to high profile relationships with other stars including Harry Styles, Tom Hiddleston and Calvin Harris.

She has previously dubbed this treatment of her in the media as sexist.

"I don't think people understand how easy it is to infer that someone who's a female artist or a female in our industry is somehow doing something wrong by wanting love, wanting money, wanting success," she told Beats 1 in 2019.

"Women are not allowed to want those things the way that men are allowed to want them.

"I think when I was the youngest, it was hard because I didn't understand why nobody was saying that this was wrong.

"We have made incredible progress. We've made incredible strides and I can look back at those lessons I learned when I was younger and I really truly don't think I did anything wrong by having a normal dating life in my early 20s."
