Basically, “Can Joe Alwyn fight?” is about how much her fans want to protect Taylor Swift. She hasn’t always had the easiest time at award shows. Will we ever forget the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards when Kanye West interrupted her acceptance speech? That was super uncomfortable, and while we’re not chanting for Alwyn to fight West, we’ve certainly seen moments where we’d love someone to have Swift’s back. This desire has prompted the Twitter trend, which has gained traction for a while. As TMZ reports, people have been asking Alwyn “Can you fight?” for a few years now. In preparation for the 2023 Grammys, one person tweeted: “and just like that … #JoeAlwyn will be trending.” Yup.
The trend on Twitter is nothing short of a delight to read. “This poor man is always questioned about his fighting skills,” one person said. “[At] this point I am assuming that Joe Alwyn does in fact know how to fight,” another tweeted. Commenting on a photo of Swift at the 2023 Grammys, another fan wrote: “She’s so beautiful it’s not fair. I’ll fight Joe Alwyn if he ever disrespects her in any way.” Someone else wrote, “bro i forgot about the grammys and only remembered when i saw ‘CAN JOE ALWYN FIGHT’ was trending.” Poor Alwyn is probably checking his Twitter feed with sweaty palms, though he was probably expecting it at this point.
