Tina Fey Throws Taylor Swift’s Insult Back In Her Face At The Golden Globes

If you’re going to give somebody the verbal middle finger, you might as well do it in front of millions of people and everyone you’ve ever worked with.

We all know Tina Fey and Amy Poehler looked awesome last night (well, mostly) and were damn hilarious, but there was one particular moment that I loved quite a bit. To be fair, there were actually about a dozen moments I loved quite a bit–namely, her calling out George Clooney and Leonardo DiCaprio for their inability to date models over 22–but this one was a pretty big burn.

Remember Taylor Swift‘s “there’s a special place in hell” comment wherein she got all sassy about last year’s (fairly mild) Golden Globes comments made by Poehler and Fey? Here’s a reminder:

“You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people,” Taylor Swift tells Vanity Fair contributing editor Nancy Jo Sales on the subject of mean girls in general and in response to an incident at this year’s Golden Globes, where Amy Poehler and Tina Fey mocked her highly scrutinized love life. “Because she said to me she had heard a quote that she loved, that said, ‘There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.’”

Well, Tina decided to throw the insult back at her, though I would assume half the people in the audience had no idea what she was referring to. Upon Poehler winning the award for Best Actress in a Comedy, Tina said this:

“I just want to say congratulations, again, to my friend Amy Poehler. I love you, and there’s a special place in hell for you.”

Some of you may have been wondering, “Wait, why was Taylor Swift there in the first place?” I was wondering this same thing until I reminded myself that Taylor Swift goes anywhere she can wear a long dress and a raised eyebrow. That said, I would be pretty f’ing intimidated if I were Swift given how many people in the room were loving Tina and Amy all night.

        She was there for a song, yadda yadda.

      Wish Tina had taken a page from the Ricky Gervais book of Mel Gibson insults and used a 10th of the subtlety she did.

      Meh. Taylor Swift is an easy target and I feel like Tina Fey can do better. She went after someone just over half of her age who said something dumb, but with the best intentions. Congratulations on proving you’re wittier than a 24 year-old, Tina. We didn’t doubt you were to begin with.

        I just think she took her down a peg or two. Taylor is always so sensitive and everyone needs to apologize to her lest she writes a song about you or sends her crazy fans after you, yet, for being so sensitive, she is kind of an asshole. Tina basically told her that not everyone is gonna apologize to her whenever she pouts and threatens to include you in a song.
