Does Taylor Swift deserve criticism for her girl squad?
Fey's beef with Swift dates back to 2013, when Fey and Poehler joined the bandwagon and joked about her being a serial dater. Taylor responded in a subsequent magazine interview, quoting US news anchor Katie Couric "There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women." An inflammatory comment no doubt but so is making a mockery of someone's love life, right?
To be fair, the SNL parody does well to credit the hard work everyday businesswomen do, highlighting the various careers women hold and how "it takes a village" just to make life work. But the last line of the spoof "I'm suing everyone here" makes it clear Fey and Poehler are definitely not Swifties.
