I’m sure you’ve heard about Taylor Swift’s dumb response to the “Mean Girls” of Hollywood (i.e. Vanity Fair asked her her thoughts on Tina and Amy’s JOKE from the Globes). I’m not posting it because it’s dumb. Anyways, Amy Poehler was contacted by The Hollywood Reporter to respond to Taylor’s response to their joke, and here’s Amy’s amazing response:
“Aw, I feel bad if she was upset. I am a feminist, and she is a young and talented girl. That being said, I do agree I am going to hell. But for other reasons. Mostly boring tax stuff. “
This is why Amy is the best.
I was at work when this all went down. While I was organizing the TV section (guys, learn your alphabet) I went through how this would play out in my head. I knew Amy would respond first because it’s Amy and she’s from Boston and she doesn’t have time for anyone’s shit, especially Taylor Swift’s. I don’t think Tina will respond, and if she does, it’ll only be through a print interview in a few months from now. I knew Amy would respond like that. Amy shut it DOWN.
The most important part of Amy’s quote is that she did not apologize for her joke. NEVER APOLOGIZE FOR A JOKE. It’s my rule. If your joke was racist, homophobic, or whatever, and a ton of people are upset, then it probably was not a joke and you should apologize.
Taylor Swift is not self-aware and has no sense of humor, so she obviously didn’t get the joke. And obviously doesn’t think she needs some “me time”. She obviously doesn’t know Tina & Amy are feminists.
Taylor Swift is an idiot.
