Pop singer, Taylor Swift has spoken up concerning the feud between her and reality TV star, Kim Kardashian, who called her a snake.
The feud started over a song by Kim’s husband Kanye West in which he called the singer a b*tch on his song ‘Famous”.
When the song was released, Taylor Swift denied she ever gave Kanye West permission to call her a b*tch on the song. However, Kim Kardashian rose to her husband’s defence by releasing prove that she did.
The evidence made many fans to drag Taylor Swift in a manner she saw as bullying.
Reacting to what she experienced, she wrote:
It would be nice if we could get an apology from people who bully us, but maybe all I’ll ever get is the satisfaction of knowing I could survive it, and thrive in spite of it”.
She also revealed that the hate campaign she faced plunged her into the lowest point in her life.
“I learned that disarming someone’s petty bullying can be as simple as learning to laugh. In my experience, I’ve come to see that bullies want to be feared and taken seriously. A few years ago, someone started an online hate campaign by calling me a snake on the internet. The fact that so many people jumped on board with it led me to feeling lower than I’ve ever felt in my life. But 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.
It’s the Stadium Tour equivalent of responding to a troll’s hateful Instagram comment with ‘lol.’ It would be nice if we could get an apology from people who bully us, but maybe all I’ll ever get is the satisfaction of knowing I could survive it, and thrive in spite of it.
Being sweet to everyone all the time can get you into a lot of trouble. While it may be born from having been raised to be a polite young lady, this can contribute to some of your life’s worst regrets if someone takes advantage of this trait in you. Grow a backbone, trust your gut, and know when to strike back. Be like a snake—only bite if someone steps on you.”
