This Is How Taylor Swift Reacted When John Cleese Insulted Her Cat and Made a Misogynistic Comment
The joint interview ended up to be one uncomfortable clusterfuck when British actor questioned Swift about her kitten Olivia Benson’s “accident,” believing that small feline was somehow deformed because it was “the weirdest cat” he had ever seen in his 74 years of living on Earth.
“How did it have the accident,” he asked the befuddled singer. “Is that a proper cat?”
The awkwardness continued when Cleese made a dig at females everywhere in front Swift, who recently declared that she now identifies as a feminist. When speaking about a cat’s temperament, the Monty Python star said to 24-year-old crooner, “I much prefer cats. They’re unpredictable and cussed — like women!”
The songstress, with pursed lips, warned the actor, “Ooh, we don’t want to do that!”
Taking to Instagram, Swift — perhaps throwing some shade back at Cleese through a platform mostly dominated by millennials — wrote alongside a snapshot of herself on the talk show, “About to be on the Graham Norton Show- if you’re in the UK, tune in! We talked about lotssss of things. #RIPME.”
Don’t worry, Tay. I died too.
