In case you missed it, Taylor Swift insinuated that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are going to hell. The dig came in Vanity Fair's profile of Swift, who graces the mag's March cover. In it, contributing editor Nancy Jo Sales quotes Swift quoting Katie Couric quoting Madeline Albright.

“You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people,” Taylor Swift tells Vanity Fair contributing editor Nancy Jo Sales on the subject of mean girls in general and in response to an incident at this year’s Golden Globes, where Amy Poehler and Tina Fey mocked her highly scrutinized love life. “Because she said to me she had heard a quote that she loved, that said, ‘There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.’”

Since that little morsel lit the Internet on fire, Fey and Poehler have both been reached for comment. At the premiere for her latest film, Admission, Fey responded to Entertainment Tonight.

"If anyone was going to get mad at us, I thought it would be James Cameron," Fey, 42, told ET exclusively at the New York City premiere of her new movie, Admission, on Tuesday night. "I did not see that one coming. It was a joke. It was a lighthearted joke.

The Hollywood Reporter managed to get in touch with Poehler.

Reached by The Hollywood Reporter for comment, Poehler, who is active in women's causes -- including a Smart Girls YouTube channel dedicated to empowering younger girls -- said: "Aw, I feel bad if she was upset. I am a feminist, and she is a young and talented girl. That being said, I do agree I am going to hell. But for other reasons. Mostly boring tax stuff. "
