Taylor Swift calls out Netflix show Ginny and Georgia over 'deeply sexist' joke

After fans caused "RESPECT TAYLOR SWIFT" to trend on Twitter, the singer speaks out with a tweet of her own. Taylor Swift is speaking out about a joke on the Netflix series "Ginny and Georgia" that made fun of her dating life. In the show, which premiered on February 24, one character says to another: "You go through men faster than Taylor Swift." Scroll below to see what Taylor said!

On Monday, Swift called out Netflix and its new drama series Ginny & Georgia in a tweet for a punchline about her in which one character said to another, "You go through men faster than Taylor Swift." Swift, who has been in a steady and committed relationship for years now, called the joke "lazy" and "deeply sexist."

She also seemed dismayed that Netflix, which is home to both her Reputation Stadium Tour Movie and her documentary film Miss Americana, which presents the star at her most candid and vulnerable, would be OK with broadcasting such a joke at her expense.

This isn't the first time Swift has spoken out against streaming services that host and profit from her content. She previously had a long-running battle with Spotify, in which she lobbied for artists to be better compensated for their music -- something she carried with her into her new record contract. Acknowledging her influence, Apple Music reversed its decision not to pay artists whose music was streamed during the free three-month trial period.

Ahead of Swift's tweet on Monday, the phrase "RESPECT TAYLOR SWIFT" had been trending on Twitter all morning in the UK and the US, with fans pointing out the long history of misogynistic scrutiny Swift has endured over her romantic choices. Swift, it turned out, agreed with fans' interpretation of the joke. "How about we stop degrading hard working women by defining this horse shit as FuNnY," she said, pointing out the irony of March being Women's History Month.

Netflix didn't immediately reply to Swift, or respond to CNET's request for comment.
