Taylor Swift has sparked controversy with her new music video after several social media users accused her of poking fun at the moment Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in Paris.
Swift debuted the music video to her new single, "Look What You Made Me Do," at MTV's Video Music Awards on Aug. 27, the Daily Mail reported. The new song already had several social media users talking, as she appeared to take jabs at ex-boyfriend Tom Hiddleston, singer Katy Perry, rapper and songwriter Kanye West and Kardashian.
But the 27-year-old pop star's music video has sparked even more controversy, as some social media users believe Swift took things too far.
The scene in question shows Swift in a bathtub surrounded by jewels. She sings the lyrics, "I don't like your perfect crime. How you laugh when you lie. You said the gun was mine. Isn't cool, no, I don't like you."
Some viewers felt the scene was a reference to the moment the "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star was robbed at gunpoint in Paris. They slammed Swift for being insensitive.
"Did taylor swift genuinely mock kim kardashian being being robbed and fearing for her life in her new music video?" asked one social media user, according to the Daily Mail. "What a disgusting human."
"I just hope Taylor Swift didn't made fun of Kim Kardashian's robbery accident in her new music video! Bc I'll be so mad," wrote another user.
"Ya know you shot at kim in the bath tub is pretty low. Stop focusing on revenge it doesn't suit you boo boo," observed another.
"Taylor swift is so sad, she actually sat in a bathtub looking at her diamond ring 2 recreate Kim k robbery wt a loser she's nearly 30," added another user.
Some Swift fans jumped to the singer's defense, insisting that the scene was in reference to comment she had previously made about herself.
"Why does it have to do anything with Kim?" asked one user. "The whole video is Taylor making fun of the stereotypes of herself, thats it."
"Taylor talked about 'the bathtub filled with pearls' in 2016 as a critique against herself," added another. "It was said before the Kim robbery even happened."
The Swift fans appeared to be referencing the moment the singer introduced her song "Blank Space" a few years ago, according to Marie Claire.
"She jet-sets around the world collecting men. And she can get any of them, but she's so clingy that they leave, and she cries and then she gets another one in her web," Swift said at the time. "And she traps them, and locks them in her mansion, and then she's crying in her marble bathtub surrounded by pearls."
