Among those not there was Taylor Swift, who instead sent a Tweet saying she has “So much love, pride, and respect for those who marched, and that she’s “Proud to be a woman today, and every day.”

Pretty Little Liars‘ Troian Bellisario blasted her earlier this year for what she called “false feminism.” Demi Lovato expressed similar sentiments in an interview with Glamour, alluding to the fact that she thinks Swift claims she’s a feminist but doesn’t “do the work” to be one. She added that “having a song and a video about tearing Katy Perry down, that’s not women’s empowerment.”

Of course, along came the Tweets calling Swift out:

While some of her fans did jump to her defense, the sentiment was largely negative. So far, Swift hasn’t publicly responded to the criticism.
