Taylor Swift has hit back at a new Netflix series that made a joke at her expense. On Monday the pop icon tweeted about "Ginny and Georgia," which poked fun at her dating history.
"Hey Ginny & Georgia, 2010 called and it wants its lazy, deeply sexist joke back," Swift wrote. The "Exile" singer was referring to a scene in which Georgia asks Ginny whether or not she had broken up with her boyfriend.
"What do you care? You go through men faster than Taylor Swift," Ginny replies.
Aside from being "degrading," Swift said the joke was highly inappropriate given the start of Women's History Month in March.
"How about we stop degrading hard working women by defining this horse shit as FuNnY," Swift wrote in her tweet. "@netflix after Miss Americana this outfit doesn’t look cute on you. Happy Women’s History Month I guess," she added with a broken heart emoji.
Many of Taylor Swift's fans backed her up.
"The fact that platforms like @netflix continue to use taylor swift as a punchline for misogynistic and sexist comments, which might I add, would never be made about a male, is the reason we continue to take 3 steps backward for every step forward in feminism. RESPECT TAYLOR SWIFT," one fan tweeted.
"This show has constantly put down strong powerful women and passed it off as a 'joke'. sexism and misogyny arent funny," another wrote.
"1. Can you name one male celebrity which this has occurred to for OVER a decade?" a third asked. "2. This is a very patriarchal comment."
Over the years Swift has faced widespread criticism for her love life with people claiming she only writes music about her boyfriends. Swift addressed this in a 2014 interview with 2DayFM Sydney.
"I think, frankly, that’s a very sexist angle to take," she said. "No one says that about Ed Sheeran. No one says it about Bruno Mars. They’re all writing songs about their exes."
