Evidently, not everyone has gotten the memo yet that Taylor Swift is not to be trifled with.

On Monday morning, The "Love Story" songstress took to social media to call out the Netflix series "Ginny & Georgia" for making a "deeply sexist" joke at her expense, and her fans are rallying behind her.

The series, which follows the lives of a young mother and her teenage daughter, took a jab at Swift's dating history in one of its episodes with the line, "What do you care? You go through men faster than Taylor Swift."

Swift sent a pointed message to the show and Netflix for the sexist joke to her more than 88.4 million followers on Twitter.

"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 sh-t as funny," Swift wrote. "Also, Netflix after 'Miss Americana' this outfit doesn’t look cute on you. Happy Women’s History Month I guess."

"Dating nine men in 30 years is normal. People act like she's dated more than 30 men," one person tweeted.

"The fact that platforms like Netflix continue to use Taylor Swift as a punchline for misogynistic and sexist comments, which might I add, would never be made about a male, is the reason we continue to take three steps backward for every step forward in feminism. Respect Taylor Swift!" another added.

"Tell them this was such a tasteless and misogynistic move on their part— how embarrassing for them. Thank you for always standing up for women, love you legend," one fan sounded off.

"You are the bravest and strongest woman ever. We are so proud of you- it really breaks my heart that they are using your name when your documentary "Miss Americana" was on their platform. We got your back," another chimed in.

This is certainly not the first time that Swift has had to combat rude comments about her personal life over the course of her career. Back in 2015, the "Delicate" singer opened up to Maxim about her thoughts on the misogyny that has been directed at her for writing songs about her dating experiences.

“Misogyny is ingrained in people from the time they are born, so to me, feminism is probably the most important movement that you could embrace because it’s just basically another word for equality," she said. “A man writing about his feelings from a vulnerable place is brave; a woman writing about her feelings from a vulnerable place is oversharing or whining.”
