‘What do you care? You go through men faster than Taylor Swift,’ says a character in Netflix show Ginny & Georgia that the singer has called ‘deeply sexist.’
American singer Taylor Swift has criticised Netflix for the show Ginny & Georgia that features derogatory mention the singer’s dating history.
The dialogue that is supposedly a joke goes, “What do you care? You go through men faster than Taylor Swift”.
Swift criticised the streaming platform for including this dialogue that she deemed ‘deeply sexist’. She added it is time hard-working women not be degraded by defining ‘horse shit’ as funny.
The singer added that after Miss Americana, this ‘outfit does not look cute’ on Netflix. Miss Americana is a documentary on Swift, which released last year in January. The documentary also explored how the media has dissected her personal life, especially her relationships with men.
Here is the tweet
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 shit as FuNnY. Also, @netflix after Miss Americana this outfit doesn’t look cute on you 💔 Happy Women’s History Month I guess pic.twitter.com/2X0jEOXIWp

The ‘joke’ was delivered by the character Ginny Miller (Antonia Gentry) in response to being questioned about a break up with her boyfriend.
Swift’s tweet has gone viral and has been liked by over 6 lakh people so far. Many fans of the 31-year-old singer supported her in the comments section and some even shared the kind of jokes that can be funny without being sexist.

On the personal front, Swift is reportedly in a relationship with British actor Joe Alwyn. The two are believed to be together since the past four years now, however, they have been able to keep their relationship away from the public eye, according to BBC.
