Taylor Swift unimpressed with jokes about her NFL star beau at Golden Globes 2024

Taylor Swift won’t tolerate jokes about her NFL star beau Travis Kelce, not even at the Golden Globes. Despite the celebratory atmosphere at the annual award show, things got awkward when host Jo Koy, 52, made a jest about Taylor Swift's personal life while acknowledging her presence at the star-studded event. Seated alongside Miles Teller's wife, Keleigh Sperry, the singer maintained a serious expression as the comedian commented on her presence at NFL games. Even her bestie, Selena Gomez looked quite bored and unimpressed with a few awkward jokes targeted toward the crowd.

Not only, Selena but the camera panned slowly towards the ladies of the night and found ‘not so comfortable’ reactions from Emma Stone, Ayo Edebiri, Helen Mirren, Yorgos Lanthimos, and Harrison Ford, when Jo Koy joked “The key moment in Barbie is when she goes from bad breasts, cellulite, and flat feet. Or what casting directors call...character actor.”
