You may have noticed "RESPECT TAYLOR SWIFT" trending on Twitter … Once more, the Swifties are out for blood (or at least a thoughtful apology). This time, the subject of their collective ire is Netflix hit Ginny & Georgia, which disrespected their queen with a misogynistic joke about her dating history.

Fans issued a, uh, swift response to the quip, giving the show many, many 1-star reviews that cite the series' treatment of the singer.

Swift herself, whose documentary Miss Americana launched on the platform last year, tweeted her disappointment regarding the slight.

"Hey Ginny & Georgia, 2010 called and it wants its lazy, deeply sexist joke back. How about we stop degrading hard working women by defining this horse shit as FuNnY. Also, @netflix after Miss Americana this outfit doesn't look cute on you. Happy Women's History Month I guess."

A change.org petition to have the platform remove the joke is garnering traction as well, with nearly 4,000 signatures to date.

Your move, Netflix.
