I know I said the joke wasn’t that bad, just not funny, but this post is spot on, Jo Koy reduced Taylor from being a nominee right after she had the nerve to reduce the Barbie movie to plastic and to the breasts. Do better next time @goldenglobes https://t.co/InBK5ClxKE

I’m still reeling from Jo Koy’s words that the Barbie movie is about a “plastic doll with big breasts.” He’s either a d-bag, a terrible comedian, or both #GoldenGlobes2024
