Last Night’s Taylor Swift/Kanye West Drama In 21 Great Tweets
Unless you were in another universe last night and this morning, you know that Kim Kardashian leaked the recorded conversation between Kanye West and Taylor Swift regarding the infamous “Famous” lyric. (Swift has even threatened Kimye with criminal prosecution over it.) The internet exploded, and everyone had to get their two cents in as usual. People are taking sides, speaking on proper internet diss decorum, digging through the vast void for the perfect gif, somehow linking it back to Pokémon Go, bringing in poor Tom Hiddleston, shamelessly promoting music, and shaming each other for paying attention to this nonsense with all the disheartening things that have happened in the past few weeks. We’ve rounded up the best ones. Here are 21 tweet reactions that sum up the bomb Kim dropped last night.

Everyone in this industry needs to get their heads out of a hole and look around to realize what's ACTUALLY happening in the REAL world

Kim posting the video is the death of Archduke Ferdinand. Khloe K vs Chloe Moretz is, like, Montenegro declaring war on Bulgaria.

"Yes? Oh I'm needed on set right now? For the big uh Loki scene? I'll be right there." "Did your phone even ring?" "It's on silent Taylor."

tom hiddleston absolutely did not sign up for this. it's like he's dating a long-retired hitman whose past has caught up with them
