Todrick Hall Brought The Mess While Defending Taylor Swift Against That “Ginny & Georgia” Joke
I don’t know how the Swift Signal works, maybe his balls tingle or there’s strobe light that turns on but Todrick Hall is immediately activated whenever His Queen is in peril. And for a very rich white lady, she’s in peril A LOT. So as soon as Taylor Swift got a little push back for calling out the Netflix show Ginny & Georgia over a “sexist” joke about her on Twitter, Todrick hopped out of this little boy Louis Vuitton race car bed and chose violence.
According to BuzzFeed, in a series of now-deleted Tweets, Todrick attempted to defend Taylor’s honor a day after she tweeted her displeasure at finding herself the butt of a joke on the Gilmore Girls but Someone is Black show Ginny & Georgia. Taylor took issue with the line “What do you care? You go through men faster than Taylor Swift,” calling it “deeply sexist” and “degrading to hard working women.” Not one to let an opportunity to kiss the ring pass by, Todrick #tooktotwitter and got down to the messy business of making a mess messier by adding a little side mess of his own, making a mess of himself in the process.
In a string of now-mostly-deleted tweets, Hall took aim at the at people using Swift’s personal life as “the butt of a joke” and encouraged others to hold the writers and networks accountable.
However, Hall was then accused of slut-shaming other people while trying to defend Swift from the very same thing when he continued: “I can think of quite a few pop stars who run through men/women like it’s cardio and no one mentions their names. The double standards are ridiculous.”
Here’s a look at some of Todrick’s unblessable mess.

Now, the Swift Signal, whether it’s in his head or real, has called to Todrick on many previous occasions (what am I saying, it’s totally in his head. Taylor’s lawyers are the only ones with a Big Red Phone that plays “We’re in the Money” when it rings), and he’s made a mess of it every time. In particular, Todrick really went in on Kim Kardashian after her “feud” with Kanye West flared up again last year. So Todrick’s detractors thew his decidedly anti-feminist words about Kim’s vagina right back in his face.
Where was the women empowerment/feminism here? Or is it just for Taylor Swift? Hypocrisy at its finest. pic.twitter.com/y8GvuD3wU8

It must be hard when your imaginary BFF is a feminist and you’re, well, you’re Todrick Hall. Let me rephrase. It must be hard when you’re Todrick Hall. The worst part is, the real victim here isn’t Taylor, it’s Antonia Gentry, the 23-year-old actor who plays Ginny and has been bearing the brunt of the Swiftie outrage. And because Antonia is Black, well, you know the rest. Decider reports:
Clearly, many Taylor Swift fans felt the tweet was a call to arms. Almost immediately, Gentry’s Instagram filled up with racist comments that need not be repeated, as well as just outright rude and harmful rhetoric.
Interestingly, the comments are also filled with other Swifties stepping up to condemn their fellow fans for the “racist bullying” of a young actress, and they called upon the trolls to turn their attention on the Ginny & Georgia writers instead. As one commenter summed up, “Y’all, stop attacking the actors and attack the people who wrote that shit to begin with. Actors don’t have much say in the script, but the writers do…..”
Well, according to Todrick, she should have spoken up! And she has. In an Instagram Story, she wrote “317 girls aged 12-16 were abducted from a school in Nigeria on Friday and there’s barely a squeak in the media.” Really can’t argue with that kind of logic. Hopefully we can all just let this G&G mess end quickly before it gets any messier than it already is. Wait a minute, my balls are tingling… what’s THIS…
