Kim Kardashian May Have Just Reignited the Feud With Taylor Swift
Another day, another celebrity feud! Although this time it's just an extension of one that's been burning for years. Fans are convinced Kim Kardashian has officially reignited her feud with Taylor Swift after the reality star randomly posted a throwback photo from the exhibit that her husband Kanye West held to celebrate his “Famous” music video. So, why do people think Kim is throwing some serious shade? Well, because we see Taylor's naked body (or, the wax figure version) front and center. Yikes.
Perhaps it's not a sly dig at all and we're all crazy for thinking Kim K. would do such a thing? Nah, that's not it. All signs point to a little shadiness whether or not she's actually trying to start a war all over again.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star's dig might be a response to Taylor's latest album, Reputation, which features songs that are definitely about Kanye. Aside from “Look What You Made Me Do,” which is about Kanye, Kim and all the other people who have burned Taylor, the song that really stuck out is “This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things.”
In it, Taylor sings, “It was so nice being friends again / There I was giving you a second chance / But you stabbed me in the back while shaking my hand.” Ouch! She even throws some shade at the fact that Kanye's no longer friends with Jay-Z after the two had a falling out this year. “But I'm not the only friend you've lost lately / If only you weren't so shady,” she sings.
Regardless of whether or not Kim was defending her hubby using the power of social media, Swifties immediately came to Taylor's defense, calling out the reality star for being a rat.
Kim Kardashian is a rat and Taylor Swift is a snake. Snakes eat rats. 🐀🐍

Kim is honestly so pathetic. She noticed that Taylor just dropped the best selling album of the year so decided to attack her for attention. I guess she is no different from all those random verified journalists that come for Taylor for likes & rts.

They've also been commenting rat emojis on her pic ever since it was posted! One fan even took a screenshot of a comment that looked to have been posted by Taylor's boyfriend, Joe Alwyn‘s brother, Patrick.

Just when we thought the war was over! As you might remember, the feud was reignited for the first time in 2016 when Kanye released the song “Famous.” The track took credit for Taylor's fame and included a lyric about having sex with her. He claimed she'd approved the lyrics prior to the song's debut, while Taylor said she'd never consented to being called “that bitch,” which is how he refers to her in the song. Then fuel was added to the fire when Kanye released the “Famous” music video featuring a naked wax figure of Taylor's body.
Months later, Kim released a video to Snapchat that appears to show Taylor approving of the offensive lyrics. Tay, on the other hand, quipped that the footage Yeezy's wife posted on social media was heavily edited and not an accurate representation of what the phone call truly consisted of. The rest is history! Now we get to patiently wait and see if more goes down between the two…
