The strange saga of Donald Glover and Marvel’s Deadpool got weirder as the writer-creator denied he was “too busy” for the project, and tweeted a full mock script. Now, Glover’s partner confirms references to a “Taylor Swift episode” were genuine, and a “last straw” for Marvel.

For someone who’s oriented so much of her music around her relationships with men, Taylor Swift has remained strangely asexual. Though she’s often seen canoodling with her various paramours, her public persona has remained squeaky clean and her music matches. Her songs focus on romance rather than seduction, more concerned with the dress she’s wearing rather than the process of taking it off. She’s a big fan of the “just sort of bending over” dance move, which could be kinda sexual, if you insist on taking it there. But for the most part, she’s kept it chastely PG.

SNL’s fake trailer for The Squad gives us an answer.
