Look what you made her do. Taylor Swift may have accepted the olive branch from Katy Perry, but her feud with Kim Kardashian is still alive and well. The singer called out the reality star during opening night of her Reputation World Tour — and while she referred to the reality star as the someone who "someone called me a snake," it is very clear who she was talking about. Check out the shocking moment down below:
Unfortunately, it seems Taylor is forgetting why Kim called her a snake in the first place (on National Snake Day, no less). The KUWTK star spoke out against Taylor in defense of her husband Kanye West, who she claimed was set up by the blonde beauty at the 2016 Grammy Awards. Just before the awards show, Kanye released his album The Life of Pablo, which featured the track "Famous." In the song he raps the lyrics, "For all my Southside n—-s that know me best / I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why, I made that b—h famous / Goddamn / I made that b—h famous."
This did not sit well with the pop princess — despite Kanye's claims that Taylor approved the song beforehand. "I called Taylor and had a hour long convo with her about the line, and she thought it was funny and gave her blessings,” Kanye tweeted. However, Taylor's rep issued a statement denying Taylor's involvement, adding, "Kanye did not call for approval, but to ask Taylor to release his single ‘Famous’ on her Twitter account."
Fast forward to the Grammys and Taylor shades Kanye in her acceptance speech. "[A]s the first woman to win album of the year at the Grammys twice,” she said, "I want to say to all the young women out there, there are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame." This was the final straw for Kim, who felt her husband was being wrongly attacked.
Wait it's legit National Snake Day?!?!?They have holidays for everybody, I mean everything these days! 🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍

“She totally approved that,” Kim told GQ. “She totally knew that that was coming out. She wanted to all of a sudden act like she didn’t. I swear, my husband gets so much s— for things [when] he really was doing proper protocol and even called to get it approved." She went on to reveal that the call was recorded — and that's when things get good.
Five months later, Kim shared audio and video footage of that phone call between Yeezy and Taylor, and she can be heard seemingly giving her approval for the track. "I never would’ve expected you to like tell me about a line in your song," Taylor said. "I mean, I don’t think anybody would listen to that and be like, ‘Oh, that’s a real diss.’ You gotta tell the story that way that it happened to you and the way you experienced it." She added, "If people ask me about it, look, I think it would be great for me to be like, ‘He called me and told me before it came out … Joke’s on you, guys. We’re fine." Right…

Shortly after, Taylor announced she "would very much like to be excluded from this narrative" but it was too late — and her social media was flooded with snake emojis and the hashtag #KimExposedTaylorParty went viral. Taylor went into hiding and reemerged with her Reputation album, releasing her single "Look What You Made Me Do," giving her side of the scandal.
However, for someone who wants to be excluded from the narrative, Taylor talks about Kim quite a lot. Shake it off already.
