One of the characters of the show, which was released this year, attempts to make a joke about the pop star's love life, saying "You go through men faster than Taylor Swift," angering fans and even Swift herself.
Swift took to Twitter to explain her disappointment in the show, asking Netflix to "stop degrading hard working women."
