Taylor Swift calls out Kim Kardashian for being a 'bully'

Taylor Swift has kicked off her highly anticipated ‘Reputation World Tour’ by calling out Kim Kardashian for cyber bullying her.

The 28-year-old opened by telling her audience in Arizona that her reptile-themed set was dedicated to the time “someone” called her a snake on social media.

Revealing the slur made her hit a low-point that left her considering giving up music altogether, she said she instead has decided to turned the scandal into a life lesson with her fans.

Though Taylor didn’t use any names, it’s highly likely she was referring to the now infamous tweet KKW shared at the height of the great Taylor Swift-Kanye West feud of 2016. See below.


As well as the very public tweet, Kim dissed the singer on Snapchat in a series of videos, and it was all completed on National Snake Day.

The 60,000 Swifties in the arena last night cheered as Taylor told her story of triumph over Kim the “bully,” but Twitter has had a mixed reaction.

In Kim’s corner were people who accused the Gorgeous singer of loving “drama”.




However, many supported their musical queen and praised her for turning something negative into a positive.





Given the sheer amount of snakes present during the concert, we doubt Taylor will just Shake It Off.

The snake is part of her brand now, and she has dozens of shows ahead of her to share the tale.

However, there is still a chance for Kim and Taylor to make up — just ask Katy Perry.
