Taylor Swift criticizes Netflix and ‘Ginny and Georgia’ show for running a ‘lazy, deeply sexist joke’ and ‘degrading hard working women’, netizens second her


Taylor Swift has accused Netflix’s show Ginny and Georgia of ‘degrading’ women for featuring a joke that she called ‘deeply sexist’. The singer tweeted a clip of the season finale of the comedy drama that carried the joke and criticized it for being ‘lazy, deeply sexist joke’. She rebuked the show for ‘degrading hard working women’ and while giving a shoutout to her documentary Miss Americana called out Netflix while wishing Happy Women’s History month.

In one scene of the show, the main characters Ginny Miller and her mother Georgia argue about relationships. Asked whether she had broken up with her boyfriend, Ginny said, "What do you care? You go through men faster than Taylor Swift." The line did not sit well with either the singer nor her fans as many called for a boycott of the series. Even Jameela Jamil gave a thumbs up to Taylor calling out the show and the OTT platform.

Taylor’s documentary revealed intimate details of her life, exploring how her relationships have been a fodder for memes and intense scrutiny by the public and press.
