Kim Kardashian blocks the snake emoji on Instagram after Taylor Swift's comeback

Kim Kardashian blocks the snake emoji on Instagram after Taylor Swift's comebackā€

The buzz hasn't stopped since Taylor Swift dropped her long-awaited single, "Look What You Made Me Do", late last night.

While fans don't seem to be happy with Swift's new song, many of her fellow celebrties came out to praise Swift's single. Adding insult to injury, Nicki Minaj is a featured guest on the track and in the video - and she has her own heated history with Swift.

Yes, Taylor Swift fans, Wednesday was a lucky one for you. "Bad Blood" found Swift singing "Look what you've done", while the former track, which sounds an terrible lot like Right Said Fred's "I'm Too Sexy", is obviously called "Look What You Made Me Do". While "Look What You Made Me Do" was written by Swift and producer Jack Antonoff (yep, Lena Dunham's boyfriend), Right Said Fred received a songwriting credit and a gorgeous bouquet with a note saying, "Look what you made us do..."

Mark Zuckerberg: Charlottesville Prompts Facebook Hate Crackdown
Facebook isn't the only organization taking a stand against hate in recent days. International Business Times has reached out to Facebook for comment.

Swift, who is followed by millions on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, wiped her feeds clean Friday and replaced the black void Monday with the first of three videos, each offering just a tad more of a snake, from tail to squirmy middle and finally its beady red eyes and fangs lunging briefly at the camera.

Instagram created it after the singer's feud with the Kardashian-Wests past year over Kanye West's song Famous.

The snake references what the media and non fans portray Swift as. At one point, she proclaims the "old Taylor" to be dead in what sounds like a voicemail recording, a nod to the now infamous phone call captured in the reality star's Snapchat story. "Look What You Made Me Do" does little to oppose that assumption, given its pointed fingers stance and emphasis on karmic retribution. If you recall, Kanye used a titled stage on his Saint Pablo tour, and Swift obviously believes the rapper distorted his story about her approving of his "Famous" lyrics. The basic idea is, as the peppy voiceover declares, to "beat the bots" to the business of buying the best seats, an ongoing frustration for fans of Swift and/or anyone else who routinely sells out shows.
