National Snake Day is not the day for the slippery animal. For Taylor Swift fans, it is the day they actually trolled Kim Kardashian over a feud that has happened a few years ago!
How It All Started
The timeline of this feud can be quite complicated.
Who can’t remember what happened way back in 2009 during the VMAs? The feud started right then when Kanye West grabbed the mic from Tay’s hands during her acceptance speech. But that’s just a forgettable scene, something you can push to the back of your mind.
Things got really complicated back in February 2016 when Kanye first sang his song “Famous”. The song has some lyrics that didn’t sit well with a lot of people. The rap goes like this:
For all my Southside n—-s that know me best / I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why, I made that bitch famous / Goddamn / I made that bitch famous.
There were a lot of ‘he says, she says’ clapbacks after the song was released. For example, Kanye claims that Tay and Kim agreed with the lyrics. However, Tay’s camp says that they firmly cautioned the rapper about using lyrics with a misogynistic message. Of course, nothing got cleared up even with all the back and forth tirades that happened back then.
Come 2016 Grammys when Taylor brought home the Album of The Year Award. She unexpectedly – or should we say, expectedly? – shot back subtly at Kanye during her speech. Basically, her speech has an undertone that says to never let other people take advantage of you.
Of course, now that Kim has become Kanye’s wife, it doesn’t come as a surprise if she has something to say about all these. Months later, shots are fired once again during Kim’s cover interview with GQ magazine.
And the feud continues.

#KimApologizeToTaylor you bullied her to protect your sexist, Trump-supporting husband. We all know Taylor was never the one who lied, you were.
