Tina Fey is apparently over her pseudo-feud with country singer Taylor Swift.
The mini-feud between Tina Fey and Taylor Swift (oh, Amy Poehler is in there somewhere, too) started at the Golden Globes when Fey made a jab at Swift’s recent split from One Direction’s Harry Styles and her long line of highly-publicized flash-pan relationships.
“You know what, Taylor Swift? You stay away from Michael J Fox’s son,” Tina Fey deadpanned to a laughing crowd.
Poehler commented that Swift should “go for it,” with Fey replying, “No, she needs some me time to learn about herself.”
Swift, unamused by the knock against her personal life, responded to Fey and Poehler in a recent interview with Vanity Fair, saying: “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.”
Poehler responded to Swift’s Vanity Fair rebuttal by saying: “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.”
Fey also cracked a joke when asked about Swift’s response. “If anyone was going to get mad at us, I thought it would be James Cameron,” Fey joked. “I did not see that one coming. It was a joke. It was a lighthearted joke.”
So the feud should end there, right? Everyone is sorry, it was a joke, let’s move on, right?
That seems to be how Tina Fey feels about it. Recent video footage shows the Admission star brushing off a paparazzi who asked her if she thought Swift overreacted to the joke. Fey laughed at him and responded, “Go f*** yourself.”
Fey stopped for a moment to talk to a fan who wanted to say hello, and then told the pap “Go f*** yourself” once again when asked for a comment.
And I would love to show you that video, but it seems that E! News has removed it.
What do you think, folks? Did Fey overreact to the pap, or should we just let this pseudo-feud die? Is Taylor Swift off-limits to jokes made at her expense?
