Kim Kardashian took a break from plugging her new Kimoji perfumes (“Peach,” “Vibes,” and “Cherry”) to throw some shade at Taylor Swift. “Wait it’s legit National Snake Day?!?!? They have holidays for everybody, I mean everything these days!,” Kardashian tweeted on Tuesday.

The beef between the West clan and Taylor Swift dates back to 2009, when Kanye stood up at the Grammy’s and said his infamous “Imma let you finish, but…” quote. Swift had just been given the Best Female Video award, but ‘Ye thought it should have went to Beyoncé for her song “Single Ladies.”
Since then, things got even more tense. In 2016, Kim Kardashian West dropped a series of Snapchat videos of Taylor Swift and Kanye discussing the lyrics to his song “Famous,” which made a sexual remark about Swift. Around the same time, Kim called Taylor a “snake” on Twitter.
Kim’s remark launched a firestorm of hateful “snake” tweets towards T-Swift. Online, the country singer had officially been branded a snake.
In May, Swift addressed Kim’s comments at a concert in Arizona.
“A couple of years ago, someone called me a snake on social media and it caught on,” Swift said. “And then a lot of people called me a lot of names on social media. I went through some really low times for a while because of it. I went through some times when I didn’t know if I was going to get to do this anymore.”
But she hasn’t let it get her down. In fact, the slithery reptiles have become a motif in her new work on the album Reputation and prominently in her song “Look What You Made Me Do,” which features a slur of her own punches towards her detractors.
And it’s Taylor who seems to be laughing at National Snake Day now. Yesterday at a concert, Swift embraced the snake reference as fans are lauding on Twitter.
