Megyn Kelly Says Taylor Swift Wasn’t a ‘Good Sport’ During Jo Koy Golden Globes Monologue

When Taylor Swift shot this year’s Golden Globes host Jo Koy an icy glare following a quip during his opening show monologue, fans online rallied behind the superstar. Megyn Kelly, however, feels differently.

“Can’t she just, like, show that she’s a good sport? I think she made the wrong move,” the host said on her SiriusXM show on Monday (Jan. 8). “By the way, she’s not in charge with the number of times the NFL chooses to put her on cam. That’s not her fault.”

Koy’s joke at the awards ceremony centered around how often the NFL’s cameras cut to reaction shots of the singer when she attends boyfriend Travis Kelce’s games. “The big difference between the Golden Globes and the NFL? At the Golden Globes, we have fewer camera shots of Taylor Swift,” the comic joked as cameras, naturally, cut to Swift, who reacted with pursed lips before casually sipping from her champagne flute.

In another post-show interview with GMA3, Koy explained that the joke was meant “to make fun of the NFL using cutaways and how the Globes didn’t have to do that. So it was more of a jab toward the NFL. But it just didn’t come out that way.” He added that the joke was “a little flat” and “a weird joke, I guess.”
