Emma Stone, who has been longtime pals with Taylor Swift, seemingly had to face the wrath of Swifties after she made a joke about the singer during the Golden Globes.

In an interview with Variety alongside Poor Things director Yorgos Lanthimos, Stone, 35, was asked about the comments she made backstage after she won best actress in a musical or comedy for the movie.

“I definitely won’t make a joke like that again,” Stone told the outlet, “because I saw headlines that really pulled it out of context.”

She then pointed to herself and added, “What a dope.”

Stone won the award for playing Bella Baxter in the quirky comedy, while Swift was at the Golden Globes as a nominee.
