Oof.

If anyone’s seen Karlie Kloss’ membership card for Taylor Swift’s squad, please return it to its owner immediately. Or, maybe keep it as a souvenir. Based on Karlie’s recent activity, it seems like she might not even be looking for her card.

On Wednesday, Karlie was spotted grabbing sushi in Los Angeles with a group of friends that included Katy Perry, who’s had her fair share of headlines involving Taylor Swift and their long-rumoured feud. While the photo, which you can see on TMZ, shows nothing dramatic, it looks like Taylor fans have wasted no time in swarming Karlie’s social media with rat emojis. Some have also used the snake, while others have come to Karlie’s defense via hearts and roses.

Karlie raised eyebrows earlier this year when she captioned an Instagram video with "Swish Swish,” which is also the same name of Katy’s song that’s definitely, maybe about Taylor.

The backlash prompted Karlie to change the caption to “Nothing but net" (It was a basketball video for LOVE magazine), but the Twitter post still shows the original text:

In July 2017, Swifties also called Karlie out for missing Taylor’s annual Fourth of July party (which didn’t even happen that year). Instead of going down the giant Taymerica slide or doing anything with her (former) BFF, Karlie posed for photos with Kendall Jenner during Paris Fashion Week. The d-r-a-m-a.

As the world waits for anyone from Wednesday’s sushi outing to clear the air on exactly why they were hanging out (or maybe for once, we can just let stars have their sushi in peace?) here’s what Karlie shared on Twitter the following day:

I'll just let this classic Taylor GIF take it from here:

After an interview made it seem like she had denounced Taylor and the squad, Lorde took to Twitter to set the record straight, saying she still loves Taylor, but she's not a huge fan of the squad label. "I've always found people's perception of this 'squad' idea frustrating in the past; it was never some exclusive club or secret society, but a wide circle of people, some of whom I know, and some I've never met, like the most wide group of friends," she wrote. "Forgive me for the mild eye roll I popped when it was brought up as if we're all blood members of a secret cult."
