Amy Poehler Responds To Taylor Swift’s Vanity Fair Diss

Our jaws collectively dropped yesterday when we read about Taylor Swift dissing both Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, in her April cover story in Vanity Fair. When asked about the jokes Tina and Amy made about Taylor at The Golden Globes, her answer to the magazine was, “You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people…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.’” Tina and Amy, going to hell? Hells to the no. But Amy’s responding to Taylor Swift’s in a manner that makes the songbird seem like a young, churlish child and we’re applauding, in awe, at the lovely Ms. Poehler for the hilarity and correctness of her answer. She responded to The Hollywood Reporter saying, “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.” And that’s how it’s done, son. Lighten up, Taylor.
