Has Netflix gone too far?

Superstar Taylor Swift doesn't like a joke on Ginny & Georgia at all.

She complains about it on Twitter.

With an average rating of 31 percent,

Rotten Tomatoes

users were

n't exactly gracious with "Ginny & Georgia" *.

Over 850 people have already rated the series there (as of March 3, 2021).

100 percent would be the highest score, but the Netflix novelty is far from that.

The

first season of "Ginny & Georgia" started

on February 24, 2021 on the streaming service.

Since then, the series has been in the Netflix Top 10, and on some days it even ranks first.

Some of the viewers seem to like it, others are not particularly enthusiastic.

Taylor Swift

belongs to the latter group

.

The series creators have allowed themselves to include a joke about the singer.

But this doesn't appeal to her at all.

Swift explains on Twitter why the supposedly harmless Joke goes too far.

Netflix series "Ginny & Georgia": A joke infuriates Taylor Swift

The focus of the Netflix series is mother Georgia and daughter Ginny, who are starting a new life in a small town.

It's not always harmonious between the two.

For example, in the final episode of season 1, there is an argument because Georgia wonders why Ginny has a new boyfriend.

The daughter replies: “What if?

You change men faster than Taylor Swift

. "

The singer didn't like the allusion to Swift's love life at all.

She lets her anger run wild on Twitter.

She even turns to Netflix itself:

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 đź’” Happy Women's History Month I guess pic.twitter.com/2X0jEOXIWp

“Hey 'Ginny & Georgia', 2010 called and wants his bad, deeply misogynistic joke back.

How about we stop putting down hard working women by defining such shit as funny?

Oh yeah, and Netflix: After the release of my documentary 'Miss Americana', the whole thing doesn't look cute at all.

I wish you all a great month in women's history, I guess, ”writes Taylor Swift on Twitter.

About the background of the tweet: A few months ago Netflix put the Swift documentary

"Miss Americana"

online.

In view of this fact, the singer finds it all the worse that the streaming service has allowed such a joke.

In addition, the whole of March is considered the

month of women's history

.

During this period, the achievements of women in the past and present are to be highlighted even more clearly.

The joke from "Ginny & Georgia", however, uses an old-fashioned cliché that portrays women as erratic and unfaithful.

Taylor Swift criticizes that the creators should have avoided such a cliché as much as possible at the current time, when the elimination of harmful prejudices is an important topic.

Criticism of the Netflix series "Ginny & Georgia": This is how Taylor Swift's fans react

Many followers have already replied to Taylor Swift's tweet.

Some share her view, while others criticize the singer.

For example, some users ask the superstar

not to take such little things too seriously

.

Others think the show is just a fact.

Other users say that Swift and some of their fans

did not understand the series

.

This is supposed to treat issues such as misogyny in society very critically.

For example, one person writes: “I don't think any of you got the point of the series and therefore can't understand why this joke was included.

In the context of the series, this phrase was intended to

expose misogyny and how much it affects the lives of young girls

.

The sentence was not intended as a misogynist joke. ”
