According to reports, Kim K has banned the snake emojis from popping up on her mega social media accounts.
Kardashian has blocked snakemoji from appearing in comments on her page after “Swifties began reciprocating the action.” The snake emoji, notoriously, became quite an issue on the social platform following Kardashian’s “Famous” phone chat revelation last year. In a recent (pre-“Look What You Made Me Do”) Wired report on Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom’s quest to “clean up the internet,” it was revealed that the snakemoji vs. @taylorswift battle resulted in the first live test of what would later become the platform’s “hide inappropriate comments” feature.

Additional reports claim the snake emoji drama stems from Kim K previously trying to troll the country music star.
Ever since Kardashian attempted to expose Swift last National Snake Day (July 17) for what many saw as being two-faced in a conversation between the pop star and her husband, Kanye West, the reality TV star’s fans have flooded Swift’s social media with snake emojis. The harassment were even enough was enough that it was used to help inform Instagram’s anti-bullying policies and software. (Billboard)
Some media outlets believe Taylor went directly at Kim’s husband Kanye West with her newly released “Look What You Made Me Do” single.
“Look What You Made Me Do” dropped to streaming services, as promised, late Thursday. From the very first lines, it’s clear that Swift is in no mood to make nice. “I don’t like your little games/Don’t like your tilted stage,” she says, in what is most likely a reference to the innovative tilted stage that West showcased on his “Saint Pablo” world tour.

Last year, Kim Kardashian talked about wanting to move away from the Swift feud.
Chatting with Billboard for its latest cover story, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 35, said that she wishes there was no more bad blood with the “Shake It Off” singer, 26. “Ugh, do we really have to talk about Taylor Swift? … I’m so over it,” Kardashian told the publication with a laugh. “If it were up to Kanye, it all would probably never have come out. He can handle it, he has no hard feelings. He doesn’t even really care. I just wanted to protect my husband. I saw him getting a lot of s–t.” (Us Weekly)
