Emily Ratajkowski has slammed Ellen DeGeneres for her interview with Taylor Swift where the popular talk show host quizzed her about her previous relationships.
At the time, Swift was just 23 years old and the clip of her on The Ellen DeGeneres show in 2012 has gone viral on TikTok in recent months.
The awkward interview began with DeGeneres implying that Swift had been dating actor Zac Efron.
"You were here with your boyfriend Zac Efron last time," quipped DeGeneres.
"Erm, we actually never dated,” argues Swift.
Despite Swift repeatedly denying this, DeGeneres continues to bate the 'Style' singer, saying: "Yes you did!".
Clearly frustrated, Swift continues the interview and tries to defend herself against the claim while the host keeps suggesting that she did date the actor.
DeGeneres then leads into a segment where she gives Swift a bell to ring if she sees someone she’s dated as a slideshow of various male celebrities plays behind them.
Those included in the reel were actor Danny Devito, Glee star Cory Monteith and singer John Mayer - among many, many others.
Swift then pleads with the host to not play the game, telling DeGeneres: “Do you know how badly this makes me feel?
“[...]I don’t want to. They'll send me get angry emails and I don't want to get them."
Ratajkowski posted her comments of the resurfaced interview on TikTok, where the clip of the show was stitched with the 'Shake It Off' singer's 2019 interview with DJ Zane Lowe.
The model called it ‘f**ked up' and added: "She’s literally begging her to stop."
Swift told Zane Lowe: "When I was 23 and people were were kind of reducing me to making slideshows of my dating life and putting people in there that I'd sat next to at a party once, and deciding that my songwriting was like a trick rather than a skill and a craft.
"It's a way to take a woman who's doing her job and succeeding at doing her job and making things and in a way it's figuring out how to completely minimise that skill."
Tyla has reached out to Ellen DeGeneres' reps for comment.
This isn't the first time a celebrity has criticised DeGeneres for the way she treats her guests on her show, as actress Dakota Johnson infamously called out the host live on air.
DeGeneres insisted that she 'wasn't invited' to Johnson's birthday party, to which the Fifty Shades actor replied: "Actually, no that's not the truth Ellen, you were invited."
