People left divided over Emma Stone’s ‘a**hole’ joke about Taylor Swift at Golden Globes

People left divided over Emma Stone’s ‘a**hole’ joke about Taylor Swift at Golden Globes

Fans have rushed to social media to share their verdicts

There's been no shortage of drama this year at the 81st annual Golden Globes awards ceremony.

People have been absolutely loving Gillian Anderson's 'vulva' dress and speculating over what looked like a pretty interesting conversation

between Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift, who also seemed pretty unimpressed after host Jo Koy called her out on stage.

We've also seen some buzz around what fans think Kylie Jenner said to boyfriend Timothée Chalamet during a viral moment from the evening but the latest has seen people totally divided over Emma Stone’s ‘a**hole’ joke about Swift.

Now, both Taylor and Emma were nominated for awards - the former for her Taylor Swift: The Eras concert film in a new category honouring the year’s films for cinematic and box office achievement, and the latter for her performance in Poor Things.

The 34-year-old singer unfortunately didn't secure a win, however, the La La Land actor, 35, bagged the award for Actress in a Musical or Comedy Motion Picture but not before being asked a question about her pal Taylor.

After winning her Golden Globe and finishing off her acceptance speech, Emma was asked how she felt about Taylor 'cheering' her win.

One clip from the event saw Emma jokingly respond: "What an a**hole, am I right?"

After taking a step back from the mic momentarily, she later went back over to the podium and assured viewers she's known Taylor for 'almost 20 years' and was 'very happy' she was there at the awards ceremony with her.

"She was also nominated tonight which was wonderful and... Yes, what an a**hole," Emma finished up by saying.

Fans clearly couldn't wait to share their reactions to Emma's response with one X, formerly Twitter, user praising: "I love their friendship so much."

A second echoed: "The only friendship that matters."

"MAKE HER HOST IM BEGGING," begged a third while a fourth chimed in: "I love seeing women supporting women, friends supporting friends and people supporting people but why not ask Emma about the work she does instead? Since that’s what she got an award for?"

A fair point indeed.

Others, however, clearly didn't see the funny side to the situation with one person hitting out: "Hilarious...Jk. Meh."

"Guess Emma can’t take a joke either," wrote a second.

A third and final Twitter weighed in, asking: "That’s a joke?"
