Basically anyone who follows pop culture knows the following two things: that last year, Kim Kardashian forever made it so that people would associate the snake emoji with Taylor Swift:
And that Taylor Swift recently revealed a set of snake imagery in the run-up for the release for her first single off her sixth album Reputation:
Tay's move to reclaim the snake emoji is a savvy one, and while Kim might've been the one to link the two forever, she's now the one receiving a slew of snake emojis in return. But while you can see a gathering of serpents in her Twitter mentions...
...you can't see the same happening on any of her Instagram posts; just take a peek into the comments on her latest gram:
BuzzFeed decided to investigate why Kim's Instagram was snake-free, and the conclusion: that she'd actually blocked the snake emoji...using the same feature Instagram tested on Taylor's account back when this whole mess first bubbled over.
It looks like in this case... the snake is eating its own tail, as this whole Taylor Swift/Kim Kardashian feud comes full circle.
