Joe Alwyn, Jameela Jamil & More Celebs Support Taylor Swift's Tweet Slamming 'Ginny & Georgia'

Joe Alwyn hasn't liked a tweet all year... until Monday (March 1). That's when he gave a thumbs-up to girlfriend Taylor Swift's scathing response to the controversial scene in the Netflix series Ginny & Georgia, in which a mother and daughter discuss dating while throwing in an offhand, offensive reference to Swift.

The backlash lifted the #RespectTaylorSwift tag to a worldwide trend over the weekend before Swift herself weighed in on Monday with a pointed tweet that read, "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. Also, @netflix after Miss Americana this outfit doesn’t look cute on you Happy Women’s History Month I guess."

Netflix exclusively released Swift's documentary Miss Americana in January 2020.

The series finale of the streaming service's original show featured a scene in which Ginny Miller (Antonia Gentry) and her mom, Georgia (Brianne Howey), get into a discussion about Ginny's boyfriend Hunter. Georgia assumes her daughter has broken up with him, which leads to an annoyed Ginny quipping, "What do you care? You go through men faster than Taylor Swift."

At press time Netflix had not responded to a request for comment on the controversy.

Swifties were quick to co-sign Taylor's tweet, calling out the scene for being what they thought was way out of bounds.
