The 6 funniest things to come out of the Kayne, Kim and Taylor feud

The 6 funniest things to come out of the Kayne, Kim and Taylor feud


Text: Yeong Sassall

Last night, the beef between team Taylor vs. team Kim and Kanye got even juicier. And to prove what a storm it’s causing, all you have to do is look at the debris…

Oh man. There's barely a day with drama in the Kimye and Hiddleswift households, is there? By now, you've probably heard or even watched Kim Kardashian's attempted Snapchat takedown of Taylor Swift, on behalf of hubby Kanye West. The ongoing feud about whether Taylor approved the lyrics to Kanye's song 'Famous' (read the background on that saga here), had more hot air blown on it last month, after Kim's US GQ article went back over it again. With Kim insisting that Taylor was lying and that she had to footage to prove it, finally, finally she released a snippet of it on Snapchat yesterday.

And of course, the interwebs had a field day. No shock there.

But the other curious side effect was the number of associated celebs who got involved in the stoush, including Kim's sis Khloe... and Chloe Grace Moretz's is it-or-isn't-it-hers? bum hole. We kid you not. Read on for our recap of the funniest, weirdest and downright worst side effects of this epic A-list feud.

1.  Khloé vs Chloë (maybe it's a name thing?)
Now this one escalated quickly. Actress Chloë Grace Moretz (who's had Twitter fights with Kim K before) had a not-so-subtle dig at the Kardashian/Kanye/Taylor controversy.

And little sis Khloé got mad. So mad she posted a photo of what was supposedly Chloë's bum hole. WTF, right?

As it turns out it, it wasn’t Chloë’s exposed bottom after all… but just some random chick. Whose anatomy is now famous to Khloé Kardashian’s 21.2 million Twitter followers.

Khloé was quick to defend herself. But man, damage was DONE


2. Ruby Rose is yet to learn about the perils of Twitter feuds
Recent Team Swift recruit Ruby Rose jumped in on the action, via Twitter. 

But Taylor haters were quick to link the two. (Hey, nobody said #squad membership was a one-way street).

Even though Ruby Rose went all world peace on them she learned a valuable lesson: don’t jump into the waters of a Hollywood superfight without armour.


3. But hey, Selena Gomez hasn’t figured it out either
She was also quick to jump on the haters. 

And they were quick to turn on her. Asking why she hasn’t joined in the #BlackLivesMatter movement

And then Selena made the fatal mistake of replying to one.

Oops. Celebs: they’re just as trigger happy as the rest of us.

4.  The snake emoji got some serious airtime
Like the lemon emoji during Beyonce's Lemonade "Becky with the good hair" witch hunt, trolls got a hold of the snake emoji and bombarded Taylor's Instagram page with it. Funnily enough, Instagram were able to delete them, leading us to surmise that the social media app does have control over online bullying. Hmm. Where is it when people other than Taylor Swift are being bullied?

5. We discovered Taylor Swift uses the Notes app to compose rebuttals
How Apple-friendly she is! And, as so many have been quick to point out, the fact that she pulled up the notes after a Search, suggests that this wasn't a hastily tapped-out statement. Did Taylor stage this as a publicity stunt? Or is she just the supremely organised diva we all secretly know she is?

That moment when Kanye West secretly records your phone call, then Kim posts it on the Internet.

6. Twitter is fertile ground for untapped comedic talent

But the funniest thing we’ve read so far? It belongs to Vanity Fair, who summed up how vapid this whole back and forth, he-said-she-said thing really is in just one line: "These are our Watergate tapes." Dear god. Where would all this be without social media? Oh, that’s right. Nowhere.
