Taylor Swift Called Out Kim Kardashian On Her World Tour, And People Are Not Happy

Diply 16 May 2018

Taylor Swift and Katy Perry may have patched things up as of late, but Tay's feud with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West appears to have to no end in sight.

Not only has this vendetta had a lasting effect on Kanye West, but it appears to have found its way into Taylor Swift's Reputation World Tour as well.

Recently, Taylor shared a photo of the stage on her tour.

Taylor captioned the image with two emojis: "??."

As you recall, it was Kim Kardashian who first alluded to Taylor being a snake. Shortly after, Taylor released Reputation and proudly accepted the reptilian icon.

During one concert on her tour, Taylor decided to make a speech which clearly hinted at her feud with Kimye.

“You might be wondering why there are so many snakes everywhere, huh?” started Taylor.

"A couple of years ago, someone called me a snake on social media and it caught on," explained Taylor.

"And then a lot of people called me a lot of things on social media," she continued.

"And I went through some really low times for a while because of it," explained Taylor to her fans.

"I went through some times when I didn’t know if I was gonna get to do this anymore," she admitted.

Without naming names, it's pretty obvious who Taylor is talking about.

Taylor then spoke to the crowd about her decision to adopt the snake motif.


“I guess the snakes… I wanted to send a message to you guys that if 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 defeat you," she said.

"It can strengthen you instead," added Taylor.

Shake it off, right TayTay?

"I think something that came out of it that was good is that I learned a really important lesson,” explained Taylor.

“You shouldn’t care so much if you feel misunderstood by a lot of people who don’t know you," said Taylor.

"As long as you feel understood by the people who do know you, the people who will show up for you, the people who see you as a human being,” she concluded.

It seems that Taylor wanted to share with her fans how she'd been handling the drama.

The turmoil between Taylor and Kimye may have been the catalyst for her Reputation album, but aside from that record, Taylor hasn't publicly spoken about the drama in months.

However, not everyone was impressed by her speech.

Instead, a number of people thought Taylor was playing the victim and exaggerating the fact that she was bullied by Kim Kardashian.

Those who called Taylor a liar were likely referring to the infamous phone conversation between her and Kanye West.

You know, the one about a specific lyric in Kanye's song "Famous" which Taylor denies agreeing to.

But despite several people coming for Taylor, there were, and always will be, millions of Swifties on her side.

But regardless of where the guilt lies in the feud (and frankly, it's on all parties involved), Taylor, Kim, and Kanye are all still prospering through it.

Well...maybe not Kanye so much. That's an entirely different story.

All in all, we think it's time to put this conflict to rest.


Maybe Taylor, Kim, and Kanye should take a page out of Katy Perry's book and offer each other some olive branches.'Cause honestly, this feud is long past its expiry date.
