Taylor Swift May Have Reignited Her Feud With Kim And Kanye With This Instagram Like

"The 'Famous' music video was straight up revenge porn ... it was disgusting and he doesn’t get enough crap for it."

You probably remember that back in 2016, Taylor Swift, Kim Kardashian West, and Kanye West became embroiled in one of the biggest showbiz feuds of all time, and it all stemmed from Kanye's track "Famous".

In case you somehow missed this drama, or need an update, the TL;DR version goes something like this:

— Kanye released a song called "Famous" containing the lyric "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? / I made that bitch famous."

— He claimed to have called Taylor asking for permission to use the lyric and said she approved it.

— Taylor released a statement saying that she had warned Kanye of the song's "misogynistic message" and that he'd never asked permission to use the line "I made that bitch famous."

— Kim then released a video of parts of their phone call in which Taylor seemingly gave her permission for Kanye to use the "We might still have sex" lyric, but not the reference to her as "that bitch".

— Taylor then disappeared from public view for almost a year before returning with an album, Reputation, which appeared to address the feud in a couple of tracks.

However, around a month before Kim shared the audio clips from Kanye and Taylor's phone call, he released the video for "Famous". It featured nude waxworks of prominent celebrities lying in a bed, and on Kanye's right was a waxwork depicting Taylor.

Taylor never publicly commented on the video, but many of her fans expressed outrage that Kanye had used a naked mock-up of her without consent, labelling it "sexual harassment" and "revenge porn".

i am losing my mind/???? like how do people still not understand that the famous video by Kanye West = rape culture/revenge porn

And fans also thought that Taylor went on to respond to Kanye's depiction of her by wearing a nude bodysuit in her own video for "...Ready For It?" as a way to "reclaim" her body.

Well, despite Kim and Taylor both recently suggesting that they're over the feud, the singer may have reignited things by "liking" an Instagram post denouncing Kanye's "Famous" video.

The whole thing started when a Taylor fan responded to the "Unpopular Opinion: Kanye Edition" Twitter thread started by @cleanupcrw, by describing the "Famous" video as "disgusting revenge porn".

The tweet went on to reference the fact that the video also positioned Rihanna and Chris Brown next to each other on the bed, despite his 2009 assault against her, and slated it for "celebrating sexual assaulters" by including Donald Trump despite the accusations against him.

Another fan then screenshotted the tweet and shared it on Instagram.

And then who should pop up to like the post but Taylor herself.

Naturally, people started freaking out that Taylor had liked it.

But Taylor didn't add any further comment. In fact, after leaving her like, she ~swiftly~ disappeared.
