Taylor Swift is getting things off her chest.
All interactions that have happened between Taylor Swift, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have been weird. First Kanye interrupted Taylor at the 2009 MTV Awards, then a few years later he called Taylor “that bitch” in his track “Famous” - which he claimed Taylor approved but she denied. And then there was the time Kim involved herself in the drama labeling Taylor as a "snake" in 2016.
Taylor discussed this particular online hate campaign in her recent open letter to Elle Magazine, where the singer listed 30 things she's learned before she turns 30 on December 13th. Number 27 begins by explaining how she's "learned that disarming someone’s petty bullying can be as simple as learning to laugh."

"A few years ago, someone started an online hate campaign by calling me a snake on the internet. The fact that so many people jumped on board with it led me to feeling lower than I’ve ever felt in my life..." she wrote. Taylor's subtle comeback to the bullying sparked by Kim was her 2017 album Reputation and her "63-foot inflatable cobra named Karyn" that "appeared onstage in front of 60,000 screaming fans."
"It would be nice if we could get an apology from people who bully us, but maybe all I’ll ever get is the satisfaction of knowing I could survive it, and thrive in spite of it," she added.
