It’s the feud that keeps on giving.
That Kanye West song “Famous,” as you’ll remember, re-ignited the drama between West and Swift in 2016, and Kim Kardashian found herself in the middle of it all when she leaked footage of Taylor Swift approving the line about her line last year. Fans in the Kardashian-West camp bombarded Swift with snake emojis on social media for months, which she brilliantly turned around and used as marketing for her album, reputation.
Now the tables have turned.
Well over a year since West’s controversial music video for “Famous” dropped, Kim Kardashian posted a throwback picture of her gazing upon the nude celebrity sculptures that were the stars of the music video—and Swift fans can’t stop posting rat emojis.
After Kardashian shared a picture of her with the sculptures on Monday, Swift’s fans speedily bombarded her with reputation references, calls to buy Swift’s album on iTunes, and SO MANY RAT EMOJIS. It truly is endless. Here’s just a smattering of the comments in the rats vs snakes war.
They’ve spread to other images on Kardashian’s account, so it’s only a matter of time before she blocks the emoji from her comments as she did with the snake emoji earlier this year.
What’s next in this emoji war? The 👽 ?
