People Are Mad At Al Michaels Over His Comment About Taylor Swift Only Being For Teenage Girls

It probably wasn’t the best idea for the NFL and Amazon to have 77-year-old Al Michaels talk about Taylor Swift.

During the Thursday Night Football game between the Saints and the Cardinals, Swift showed a teaser trailer for her new video, that is going to be released at Midnight.

After the video was played, Michaels implied that Swift was only big among teenage girls.

“You have 4 sons if you had a daughter she would be over the moon right, I have a granddaughter and she’s completely over the moon right now…now one more popular among the teenage girl group than Taylor Swift.

Michaels’ comment didn’t sit well with some people.

“whining like this is super boring but i’m going to do it anyway: the “teenage girls must be so excited!” nonsense is so dull and embarrassing and uninformed. boo.”

“All respect to Al Michaels, but dudes can be Taylor Swift fans, too”

“Al Michaels insinuate that boys can’t be excited for new Taylor Swift and shaking my head the whole time to show that I don’t agree with it”

“Hearing Al Michaels insinuate that boys can’t be excited for new Taylor Swift and shaking my head the whole time to show that I don’t agree with it”

“The NFL wants to be in business with Taylor Swift in part because she appeals to a demographic that the NFL would like to reach more, but Al Michaels’ assumption that Kirk Herbstreit’s kids don’t like Taylor Swift because he has sons was kinda dumb.”

“Al Michaels writing off Taylor Swift as just a girl singer his granddaughters love is both equally embarrassing and condescending. Sir, Taylor Swift could buy you out MANY times over. #TNF #TSmidnight”

“Al Michaels thinking Taylor Swift is most popular among teenage girls doesn’t know we’re all 30 now”

“Someone tell Al Michaels that people over the age of 8 listen to Taylor Swift.”
