Taylor Swift fans blast Kim Kardashian with rat emojis over Instagram post

Taylor Swift fans blast Kim Kardashian with rat emojis over Instagram post

The caption on Kardashian's post read simply, "famous", and while it might seem like a harmless throwback, the reality star's comments were instantly flooded with rat emojis from Swift fans who saw the move as some low-key shade directed at the "Look What You Made Me Do" singer.

The photo showed Kardashian taking a picture of Swift's naked wax figure laying next to a naked wax figure of her husband, Kanye West.

It's no secret that the two women don't have the best history together; after Taylor publicly took offense at one of Kanye West's lyrics about her, Kim's husband famously ranted about Taylor being "fake" a year ago, which was soon followed by Kim "exposing" Taylor on Snapchat.

Country music star Taylor Swift has some hardcore fans riding for her. "Snakes eat rats." wrote one user.

The words could well be taken as a response to Kim's Instagram post on Monday night.




Taylor slams someone for their "tilted stage", something Kanye had during his Saint Pablo tour in 2016, when she sings: 'I don't like your little games/ Don't like your tilted stage/ The role you made me play/ Of the fool/ No, I don't like you'.

Another commented: "JUST A BIG FAT RAT". Taking to Instagram in their droves, they posted row after row of rat and mice emojis - a reference to Kim herself. Swift was publicly incensed, but Kardashian-West refuted her outrage by offering up audio of Swift pre-approving the lewd lyric on the phone.

Media reports suggest the rats stem from Kim K snitching on how Kanye told Swift about getting at her on his "Famous" song.

The TL;DR version: Kanye West released a song called "Famous", which included a lyric about having sex with Taylor Swift. The footage did not address the "b--h" line.
