Hey Taylor Swift, Tina Fey Thinks You Should Take a Joke
You know how Taylor Swift finally gave a really passive aggressive response to Tina Fey’s Golden Globes joke in her new Vanity Fair article?
Tina Fey thinks Swift is really overreacting to all of this.
Some background: At the Golden Globes, Fey and Amy Poehler cohosted and, in a bit where they pretended to be sloppily drunk, warned Swift to stay away from Michael J. Fox’s son. Fox responded to the joke with some more jokes of his own, but Swift was reportedly livid.
She told Vanity Fair regarding the jibe that there’s “a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.” Dude, seriously? Beezelbub has devils set aside for two of the most outspoken feminists in show business? Please.
Poehler responded sweetly and adorably — as she always does — but Fey was a bit more sassy.
Fey dismissed Swift’s oversensitivity, telling Us Weekly, “It was just a joke, and I think it was actually a very benign joke.”
Amen! Swift likely would minimize a lot of the backlash she’s been facing lately if she maintained a sense of humor about herself. It would also make stories like these die down a lot faster!
