Why Taylor Swift Fans Are Spamming Kim Kardashian's Instagram Page With the Rat Emoji
Taylor Swift's Best Candids

The reality TV star might regret posting this throwback photo.

Hell hath no fury like a Swift fan scorned.

Kim Kardashian found her Instagram comments flooded with rat emojis on Monday and Tuesday, after posting a throwback photo from Kanye West's "Famous" art exhibit.

Said photo showed Kim taking a cell phone snap of all the nude wax figures West commissioned for the project, including a totally naked Taylor Swift.

Loyal as ever, fans of Swift immediately pounced on the shot, filling the comments with quotes from Swift's "Look What You Made Me Do" song -- reportedly all about her Kimye feud -- and the vermin emoji. The backlash carried over to the comments on additional posts on her page. So, why a rat? Well, after Kim referred to Taylor a "snake," fans retaliated by saying, "snakes eat rats."

Their now legendary feud began when Kanye interrupted Swift's speech for Best Female Video at the 2009 MTV Music Video Awards. They seemingly buried the hatchet and conspired on lyrics to West's song "Famous." But West rapping "I made that bitch famous" in the final version of the song allegedly caught Swift by surprise -- she says she never agreed to be referred to in such a derogatory manner.

West soon released the video for the song, which included a likeness of Taylor's nude body, before Kim shared audio of West and Swift's phone conversations about the track on Snapchat. Though the calls confirmed they spoke about the lyrics, there's never any mention of him referring to her as a "bitch."

After saying she wished to be "excluded from this narrative," she struck back at both of them on her new album, "Reputation," with "LWYMMD" and "This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things."

Will this battle ever end?! Here's a breakdown of all the Kimye references on "Reputation":
