Denver, CO – Swifties were not impressed with 2024 Golden Globes host Jo Koy.

During last night’s broadcast, Koy joked, “We came on after a football doubleheader. The big difference between the Golden Globes and the NFL… On the Golden Globes, we have fewer camera shots of Taylor Swift.”

The camera then panned to Swift seeming unamused as she sipped her wine, leading Swifties to fiercely come to her defense online.

Koy reacted to the backlash in an interview with Extra at a Golden Globes afterparty, where he said the joke was meant as a “compliment.”

“It was a compliment, like she could be more intimate tonight, that’s all,” Koy said.

He also told Entertainment Tonight“Aww man. It was cute! It was cute! I was just saying — it’s less cutaways. That’s all!”

The comedian also seemingly blamed the writer’s room for the jokes that flopped, saying, “I wrote some of these, and they’re the ones you’re laughing at.”
