Taylor Swift fans go after 'rat' Kim Kardashian on Instagram

Captioned, "Famous", Kardashian, 37, was met with several comments featuring endless amounts of rat emojis. "I made that b***h famous". Previous year when the drama first unfolded, commenters began referring to Swift as a snake, a narrative she has since reclaimed with her latest album, Reputation.

Taylor appeared to hit back just 24 hours later, posting a picture of herself from her new Vogue shoot. The line refer to the infamous incident when West interrupted Swift's acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV VMAs. After Swift claimed she was not aware of or okay with the lyrics, Kardashian leaked a phone call between her husband and the Grammy victor, where they can be heard discussing the song.

But her claims were later undermined by Kardashian after she posted snippets of a video to Snapchat which showed West talking to Swift on the phone. However, Taylor later asserted that she did not give her blessing to be a called "that b*tch" on the song.

Adding further fuel to the fire, West's video for the song included a naked waxwork of her without permission, which didn't go down too well.

Kanye's Famous video featured a wax figure of him sleeping nude on a bed with nude wax figures of Taylor, Kim and Donald Trump, among others. If you ask some of Taylor's fans, it was a calculated move on Kim's part, and as a result, Kim's comments sections are being filled with rat and mice emojis (obviously a response to Kim branding Taylor with the snake emoji last year).

The rats are a likely replacement for the snake emoji, which Kardashian blocked from her feed after both she and swift were plagued with them in their Instagram comments amid the high-profile feud.

Months later, Kim released the phonecall between Kanye and Taylor in which he told her about the song and she approved, but didn't let her know he would be calling her "a b***".

Swift's defense was that while, yes, she was fine with the gag about hooking up with West, she did not expect to be called the B-word.

The recording then went viral and Kim and Kanye have been at war with Taylor ever since.
