Emily Ratajkowski has slammed an episode of Ellen DeGeneres questioning Taylor Swift about her celebrity boyfriend.
A clip of the segment went viral on TikTok, and the TV host was again accused of treating guests.
In a 2012 interview, DeGeneres began digging about Swift, hinting that she was dating Zac Efron, even though she had to repeat another thing.
When the host said, “You were here last time with your boyfriend Zac Efron,” the singer replied, “Well, we never actually dated.”
“Yes, it did,” said DeGeneres, causing the audience to burst into laughter.
There’s an obvious frustration on Swift’s face as she constantly has to defend herself, but the host keeps teasing her and suggesting she dated the actor.
This exchange leads to a quiz where DeGeneres shows a slideshow of photos of Swift and various celebrities.
of shake it off Starr was given a bell and told to ring it if she dated a man on screen, and the host suggested she wanted to find out who inspired the song. we are never ever getting back together.
Swift is clearly uncomfortable as photos of her with everyone from Danny DeVito to Justin Bieber have surfaced.
Eventually, DeGeneres gets a bell and starts ringing it in every photo.
Ratajkowski, who described the quiz as “messed up”, said, “She’s literally begging to stop.”
The clip Ratajkowski commented on was tied to a 2019 interview with Zane Lowe, in which Swift alluded to that interview and how uncomfortable it made her feel.
“When I was 23, people were making slideshows of my dating life and letting people sit next to me at parties and deciding my songwriting was more like a trick. than skills and crafts.
“It’s a way of taking women who are successful at doing their job, doing their job, making things, and in a way, figuring out how to minimize that skill entirely.”
Alongside Ratajkowski, many others have criticized the host and the show, with one commenting:
“I think ‘I don’t want to do it’ was enough,” said another, adding that the third added, “She was almost crying and she was just laughed at.”
The fourth chime was, “Wow. Ellen always had such a mean streak.”
