Taylor Swift reignites feud with Kim Kardashian during first show of tour

  • 10/05/2018

Taylor Swift apparently isn't over her feud with the Kardashians yet. 

During her Reputation Stadium Tour opening night show in Arizona, the 28-year-old 'Shake It Off' singer opened up to her fans about going through a hard time "a couple of years ago", while alluding to her feud with Kim Kardashian.

Swift has had a vendetta against the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star since July, 2016, when Kardashian branded Swift a "snake" and posted videos on her Snapchat of a private phone call between the Grammy winner and Kanye West, 40, discussing his song 'Famous'.

Swift told the Arizona crowd on Tuesday night (local time) that she "went though some really low times" after being dragged on social media. 

"Someone called me a snake on social media and it caught on," she told audiences at University of Phoenix Stadium.

"And then a lot of people called me a lot of names on social media, and I went through some really low times for a while because of it."

She then told fans she had reclaimed the word "snake". 

"I went through some times when I didn't know if I was gonna get to do this anymore," she said, before launching into song 'Long Live'. 

"I guess the snakes... I wanted to send a message to you guys that if someone uses name-calling to bully you on social media and even if a lot of people jump onboard with it, that doesn't have to defeat you. It can strengthen you instead."

Yesterday, Swift mended her public feud with Katy Perry over social media, but it looks as though no olive branches will be extended to Kimye just yet.        

Swift's Reputation World Tour will stop off in New Zealand in November.
