Koy admitted that his joke related to Taylor Swift was “a little flat.” The comedian earned backlash during the telecast for targeting Swift with a joke about how the Golden Globes ceremony aired on CBS right after a football game featuring the Kansas City Chiefs, a team Swift is now synonymous with given her relationship to tight end Travis Kelce.
“As you know, we came on after a football doubleheader,” Koy said during the show. “The big difference between the Golden Globes and the NFL? On the Golden Globes, we have fewer camera shots of Taylor Swift, I swear.”The camera then cut to Swift in the audience, who appeared unamused and sipped from her drink.
When asked if there were any Globes moments that he felt bad about, Koy told “GMA 3”: “I think it was when the Taylor [Swift] one was just a little flat…It was a weird joke, I guess. But it was more on the NFL…I was trying 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.”
