Taylor Swift fans were enraged at new Netflix series ‘Ginny and Georgia’ after it made the same old sexist joke on the singer-songwriter, that has been used for years now.
Netflix Rating drops: How it has started
In the show, during the final episode of the series, during a conversation between characters Ginny and her mother, Georgia, the line “you go through men faster than Taylor Swift” was used. For obvious reasons, this did not sit well with Swifties.
This is not the first time this sexist comment has been made on the pop star. Taylor Swift has a history of hate that she has received for “making money off writing songs about her ex’s and lovers”. All her relationships with men have always been made public throughout the years and she has been made fun of a lot for writing songs about them.
Taylor Swift also took to twitter to share her thoughts on this sexist comment. “Hey Ginny and Georgia, 2010 called and it wants its lazy, deeply sexist joke back. How about you 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 wrote on Twitter
Why don’t you make fun of Male Artists, Taylor Swift asks
She had previously also talked about how no one makes fun of the male artists such as Ed Sheeran and Bruno Mars for making songs about their ex’s and lovers.
“No-one says that about Ed Sheeran. No-one says that about Bruno Mars,” she said. “Frankly, that is a very sexist angle to take.” she said. “I have a really strict personal policy that I never name names. So anybody saying that a song is about a specific person is purely speculating.”
Fans were also mad at Netflix, since Netflix has made a whole documentary on Taylor Swift, and still uses such sexist lines in it’s shows regarding her.
Ever since the last episode aired, the ratings of the show have also dropped on various platforms, all thanks to the fans.
Last year, Taylor Swift blessed us with two albums, ‘Folklore’ and it’s sister ‘Evermore’, and ‘Folklore’ has also been nominated for a Grammy, for the ‘Best Album of the Year’.
