Drama alert! The neverending feud that is Kim Kardashian and Taylor Swift escalated earlier this week when Kim posted a seemingly shady snap on Instagram. The reality star shared a photo of her taking a picture at the 2016 “Famous” exhibit that featured the wax figures of her naked husband, rapper Kanye West, and a naked T-Swift. “Famous,” the KKW Beauty mogul captioned the photo.
It didn’t take long for Swifties to flood the 37-year-old’s comments’ section with emojis of rats and snakes. One person commented, “OMG, Kim, you are so childish.” Another, however, felt like people were overreacting. “Taylor can do music about this, but Kim can’t post a photo about Kanye’s music? You guys are so hypocritical.”
The feud between Kim’s hubby and Taylor began back in 2009 when Tay was still rocking long blond curls and was, well, less annoying. She went up on stage to accept the award for Best Music Video for “You Belong With Me” at the VMAs when a rogue Kanye appears, takes the mic, and speaks the now immortal words: “Yo, Taylor, I’m really happy for you and I’mma let you finish, but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time. One of the best videos of all time!”
In 2016, Kim leaked a phone call between the “Ready for It” singer and her husband on Snapchat. In the clip of the call, Kanye never told her he was going to call her “that bitch” in the song nor did he ask permission to use a naked replica of Taylor in his music video. Taylor later posted on Instagram, “You don’t get to control someone’s emotional response to being called ‘that bitch’ in front of the entire world,” she wrote. “He promised to play the song for me, but he never did.”
Sigh. Can’t we all just get along?
