Taylor Swift slams Kim Kardashian for 'petty bullying' in new article

Taylor Swift has dished the details on the way she coped with what she dubbed "petty bullying" from Kim Kardashian - and how badly it affected her at the time.

In a revealing article Swift wrote for Elle magazine, the 'Bad Blood' songstress shared 30 things she had learned before turning 30 years old - one of which included how to deal with celebrity feuds.

"I learned that disarming someone's petty bullying can be as simple as learning to laugh," she said.

"A few years ago, someone started an online hate campaign by calling me a snake on the internet."

The incident she refers to was Kardashian's infamous use of snake emojis on social media in defence of her husband Kanye West, after he sang about having sex with Swift and claimed "I made that bitch famous".

Swift denied having ever approved the notorious lyrics, despite West's assertion he checked with her first. Kardashian later released a video that appeared to show Swift giving West the green light over the phone.

"The fact that so many people jumped on board with it led me to feeling lower than I've ever felt in my life," Swift continued.

During her Reputation Tour, Swift explained she found a way to exact her own brand of humorous revenge.

"I can't tell you how hard I had to keep from laughing every time my 63-foot inflatable cobra named Karyn appeared onstage in front of 60,000 screaming fans," she said.

"It's the Stadium Tour equivalent of responding to a troll's hateful Instagram comment with 'lol.'"

The 29-year-old added that while it would be "nice" to get an apology, she's satisfied to know she survived the situation, and thrived in spite of it.
