Taylor Swift criticises Netflix show for ‘deeply sexist joke’

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 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 on social media. Some Swift fans even called for a boycott of the series.

Swift herself addressed the controversy in a tweet, writing: “Hey Ginny & Georgia, 2010 called and it wants its lazy, deeply sexist joke back.”

Swift’s love life has long been in the media spotlight. The singer has been linked to various men – including former One Direction singer Harry Styles, actor Tom Hiddleston and DJ Calvin Harris – in the past.
