Don’t mess with Tina Fey, because she WILL write you into her TV show. Though Taylor Swift said ‘there’s a special place in hell’ for women like Tina and her fellow Golden Globes host Amy Poehler after they joked about her at the 2013 awards show, Tina got the last word in.
Taylor Swift, 26, didn’t let Tina Fey and Amy Poehler‘s 2013 barb about Michael J. Fox‘s son slide, so neither did Tina. See how the showrunner and writer used her hit Netflix show Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt‘s second season to call out TSwift one final time!
Tina always gets the last word, it seems. Though she actually has a role as therapist Andrea Bayden on the second season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Tina doesn’t utter the words herself; rather, they are said by the incredible Titus Andromedon (Tituss Burgess): “You know there’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women,” he tells Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) during a distressed rant about his beloved Barbies. For a recap, Taylor first said that about Tinamy after their GG diss in a Vanity Fair interview, and the duo called her out for it the next year. Sorry, Tay.

After Taylor’s Vanity Fair story came out, Amy responded with a joke (as did Tina; it just took a while longer): “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,” Amy said. At the time, Tina stated that “it was just a joke, and I think it was actually a very benign joke” (agreed). Naturally, her own joke had a delayed response, and it was so satisfying to see it finally pop up on UKS. Brilliant.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Taylor will respond to this shade, or has she been shut down for good?
