Taylor Swift Fans Are Spamming Kim Kardashian's Instagram With The Rat Emoji After She Posted A Reference To Kanye's "Famous" Video

This drama will honestly never end.

You probably recall the shitstorm of drama that went down between Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, and Taylor Swift in summer 2016.

The TL;DR version: Kanye West released a song called “Famous,” which included the following lyric: “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/ Why?/ I made that bitch famous.” Kanye claimed that Taylor had approved the lyric, but she stated that while she had heard the initial line, she did not hear or approve the reference to her as “that bitch.” She then referred to the incident in her Grammys acceptance speech, which led to Kim Kardashian claiming she had proof that Taylor had approved all of the lyrics. Kim then leaked part, but not all, of the audio from their phonecall on Snapchat and Taylor disappeared from the public eye for months.

Further fuel was added to the fire when Kanye released the video to the song. In it, he lies in bed surrounded by naked waxworks of notable celebrities. To the right of him is Kim Kardashian and the left, Taylor Swift.

The video caused controversy at the time, and Taylor appeared to reclaim her naked body in her video for "...Ready For It", released in October.

And then when Taylor's new album was released last month, she appeared to address her feud with Kanye in the song "This is Why We Can't Have Nice Things".

Well, fast-forward to the present day, and Kim Kardashian has randomly posted this throwback photo from the exhibit Kanye held in celebration of the video back in August 2016 – a month after she leaked the call on Snapchat.

And so Taylor Swift fans have started spamming the comments of the photo with the rat emoji.

Seriously, the rats go on endlessly.

And are likely a replacement for the snake emoji – which Kim blocked from her feed after both she and Taylor were bombarded with these in their Instagram comments from their opposing fan bases after Snapchat-gate.

Some of the comments refer to Taylor Swift lyrics, while other Instagram users have tagged the singer so she sees the messages.

And the rats have also spread to other photos on Kim's Instagram.
