Taylor Swift’s response to a joke by Jo Koy during the Golden Globes has become a trending topic online. During the ceremony on January 7 in Los Angeles, host Jo Koy made a joke, referencing Swift’s frequent appearances at NFL games to support her boyfriend, Travis Kelce of the Kansas City Chiefs.
Highlighting the disparity between the Golden Globes and an NFL game, Koy quipped, “Unlike the NFL, we don’t have numerous shots of Taylor Swift… There’s a lot more happening here.”
The camera then captured Swift’s reaction, showing her with a composed yet unamused expression, taking a moment to sip her drink. This instant reaction didn’t go unnoticed by viewers, who quickly shared their takes on social platforms. Comments ranged from playful jabs like, “Did Taylor Swift just end Jo Koy with that look?” to remarks from figures like Piers Morgan, who humorously tweeted, “If stares could kill, Jo Koy would be history.”
Interestingly, Jo Koy had a brief window to prepare for his hosting duties, as he mentioned to Variety, expressing both surprise and the tight timeframe he had to craft jokes. Apart from the jest aimed at Swift, Koy’s hosting included other quips that divided audiences, including remarks about Prince Harry and Meghan’s Netflix deal and a comedic take on the iconic Barbie doll. Meanwhile, another comedian, Jim Gaffigan, stirred reactions with his comment regarding the recently revealed Jeffrey Epstein court documents.
In a separate update related to Taylor Swift, her concert film, “The Eras Tour,” achieved a significant milestone. As of January 8, it surpassed records, amassing a global revenue of $261.6 million (£206 million), making it the highest-grossing concert film to date, overtaking Michael Jackson’s “This Is It.”
