Just when we thought the war between Swift and Kardashian was finally starting to simmer down, Taylor goes and ups the ante with an attempted sly dig that even the most hopeless detective could have deciphered.
During a recent visit to Arizona for her world tour, Swifty told fans that she hit a personal low point a few years ago after being bullied online.
While Swift didn’t mention the name of the person who bullied her, it was obvious she was talking about none other than Kim Kardashian.
“A couple of years ago, someone called me a snake on social media, and it caught on. And then a lot of people called me a lot of names on social media. And I went through some really low times for a while because of it. I went through some times when I didn’t know if I was gonna get to do this anymore and I guess the snakes… I wanted to send a message to you guys that it someone uses name-calling to bully you on social media and even if a lot of people jump on board with it, that doesn’t have to beat you. It can strengthen you instead.”
Doesn’t take a genius to know that Swift was referencing her notorious (and ongoing) issues with the Kardashian-West clan, which peaked in 2016 after Kim released secretly filmed footage of Swift and West talking about referencing the pop princess in his song, “Famous”.
To dig in extra hard, Kardashian released the footage on National Snake Day after Swift publicly tried to take West down for all his claims (including the ones about making her famous and calling her “bitch”).
It was a whole thing.
But Taylor has found a way to make the snake work for her and to win against the online trolls.

The most important question remains however… Will Kardashian retaliate? Or has she technically “won” the battle because Swift has admitted to being hurt and upset by Kardashian’s tweets?
Keep in mind, neither superstar has actually called out the other one directly, so maybe this is all heading for some ultimate showdown where they finally come at each other properly and just get it over and done with.
