American singer and songwriter Taylor Swift has been trending on Twitter as fans came to her defence after Netflix's recent show Ginny & Georgia featured a line in the script commenting about Taylor Swift's long list of ex-boyfriends.
Calling it a "deeply sexist joke" about her, Taylor reacted to the line from the show and slammed Netflix. "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 s--t as FuNnY," wrote Swift.
She also reminded the streaming giant that her own documentary Miss Americana, is currently one of the beloved Netflix titles. "Also, @netflix after Miss Americana this outfit doesn't look cute on you. Happy Women's History Month I guess," she added.
